Sandra Bullock was my sentimental favorite for Best Actress.
was absolutely the best I've ever seen her. In my opinion (still loving Sandra) I think Meryl should have had the Oscar.
We saw George Clooney in Up In The Air , who showed up for the Oscar's looking like he needed a hair cut. But I digress. We also saw Jeff Bridges
in Crazy Heart. In our opinion, there was no contest. Jeff Bridges did a phenomenal job in portraying Bad Blake. And though neither one of these guys got the girl in the end, somehow I left Crazy Heart with a light heart. Not so with Up in the Air.
Christopher Waltz was our choice for Inglorious Basterds. We both agreed that we hated him the moment he came on the screen. What a superb acting job.
I was really torn about Best Supporting Actress. I really thought both of the women in Up In the Air did a great job and would have been happy about either one. Once again, I had a sentimental favorite in Maggie Gyllenhaal.
who, of course, didn't win. And I think there was one real mistake made by the Academy in not nominating Amy Adams for her role in Julie and Julia.
