    What a good find on Waltz.

    The man gives me hope that, maybe in 29 years, my life, too, will stop sucking so much ass.

    Now if only he can go up on stage if-and-when he wins the Oscar and just opens up like he does here, instead of rambling on with these obtuse, professor-like disserations about the awards he’s winning.

    In either case, seems like one of those stand-up, decent guys who will make this all work for him simply because he uses his head. Major, major congratulations.

    Oh, and congrats to you guys on making the above list. I visit this one a ton ever since I got into film, along with Pete Hammond and Tom O’Neil’s stuff.

    The years are irrelevant. It’s about the performance, people.

    Not when they continue to nominate Meryl Streep.

    LOL, thats ironic, considering that she may lose to Freaking Bullock, dont tell me that Bullock “performance” is the reason for her to win.
    And I am no even a Meryl fan

    Meryl gave an amazing performance and she’s won a ton of critical praise. Reason enough to finally give her a well deserved third Oscar.
