Hope Jeremy Renner wins! He put in a solid performance. Also hope Inception wins for Original Score!

You are totally right about Edgar Wright and Chloe Moretz. They should be on that list.

The Town was robbed all around. Glad at least they threw Renner a bone.

I'm not all that disappointed with the Oscars this year, except no love for Christopher Nolan, or The Town for that matter. However, it doesn't matter all that much really since The Social Network is practically going to win everything it's nominated for. Which kind of blows, but hey it really was an amazing piece of work. Can't wait for the show!
