    Ricky was hilarious the whole night. Great stuff, especially the Gibson drinking dig.

    Sadly avatar ruled the night. BLECH.
    I hope this doesn’t happen at the Oscars. Felt bad for The Basterds.
    Waltz speech was weak though I felt…….
    I’m predicting the DGA goes Bigelow, PGA Avatar

    An unexciting slow night made watchable due to Gervais. Can’t stand Cameron.

    @Jason Travis – if you are responding to me and not any other Michael then I think you may have misunderstood my bad attempt at a joke with my comment #107 where I said Sandra Bullock > Meryl Streep that was supposed to be immediately followed by j/k but someone else responded so my follow up comment was not posted until #109.

    Anyway, even if I am not the right Michael you were responding to, I feel right now like anything is possible, but to be honest I didn’t think either Meryl Streep or Sandra Bullock gave the best performance of the year so I honestly don’t care which one wins. I don’t think anyone has a clear lock on the award and I would love for an “upset” to occur (where the actual deserved winner from either Gabby or Carey won) but it doesn’t seem likely the way the momentum is going. I just don’t think this is as obvious a year to call as it was the last few years. I could see it going either way between both Meryl and Sandra (who I felt both gave good but not great performances this year) or to one of the younger upstarts that actually deserved it this year. So it will be interesting to see what actually happens.

    Though, AVATAR winning makes sense. Kris said that HPFA loved the film. It’s a hugggge film with critical acclaim. And THE HURT LOCKER … the only reason they nominated it was to not look like fools. They didn’t even nominate Renner.

    On Meryl vs. Sandra. Both have won BFCA and GG. Meryl has more critic mentions. She has the overdue/sentimental factor. And I just don’t see AMPAS believing Sandra is the Best Actress this year.
