    Moneyball? Really!?! Wow! Oddly, I agree with everything you said except for what you think should win best picture. I loved the Descendants. That is who I think should win. I agree that either The Artist or The Help will win best picture. Thanks for doing this site. I love reading your thoughts!

  • Im kind've hoping Hugo picks up a few more. Did you have fun yesterday/today? We did!! Totally true on directory (of course tho, I'd love Scorcese. 2nd time on tree of life did it for me.)
