    Thanks for posting these. I'm just glad The Town got picked since it was my favorite movie last year. Didn't know Ben Affleck helped write it. He seems like he's finally settling into himself.



  4. 4

    Three comments about commenting? Seriously, WTF.



  5. 5

    UNITED STATES OF TARA! DO THESE PEOPLE EVEN WATCH WHAT THEYRE VOTING ON? HOW DO YOU MISS THAT SHOW - TONI COLETTE IS BRILLIANT.



  6. 6

    How is Spartacus NOT nominated?
    ~yawn~
    Another award show I won't be watching.



  7. 7

    WHAT??!
    The office shouldn't be nominated for ANYTHING. it sucks horribly now.



  8. 8

    I don't understand why Glee keeps getting nominated for awards. That show is God awful.

    Re: bowlerderby – It really has some terrible, terrible writing. My guess is it only gets nominated for things simply because it's popular. And because they sing. Singing seems to automatically earn movies/tv shows awards.

    GOOD LORD! Tamasy was my high school religion teacher! HAHAHAHAHHAHHA!! I knew he was a skeezy Hollywood type (says the chick who works for one of the production co's of The Fighter).
