What are your thoughts on these winners? No real surprises, perhaps with the exception of Anna Paquin tying with Meryl Streep. Great to see A Separation receive multiple awards and a win for We Need to Talk About Kevin.


  1. As long as We Need to Talk About Kevin gets something and acknowledgement on The Tree of Life in that top 10 list. I'm cool.

  2. I like these. I sort of squealed with joy for the Craig Roberts win. Submarine and Oliver Tate *love*.

  3. I really want to catch Margaret but can't find it anywhere .. DVD release at some point I guess. Did you see it?

    1. Yeah, there is no scheduled release her in Australia. It took something like four years to get a release or something. I haven't seen it, but I really want to also.
