anabj! I do not think that at all - did you see The Dark Knight?? I think thats the horrible irony of his death - he was just coming into his own as an actor.

I think they nominate Heath just because he is dead.

wow 13 noms for Benjamin Button - be really embarrassing if they dont win anything! Hope Kate wins Best Actress - finally! She so deserves it. And I'd like to see Heath win Best Supporting Actor. He was so terrifying in The Dark Knight.

Happy for Penelope Cruz! I hope she gets it. Kate Winslet won the golden globe but she is nomminated for leading actress not suporting at the oscar, so I think she will have more chances. I hated the movie, but Pe made a good job (and I am not her fan) I am also glad we´ll get to see Brangelina!!
