Academy Awards Help Needed

I'm going to a shindig at the Tampa Theatre for Academy Awards Night. Like any good mom, I haven't seen ANY of the movies nominated in the big categories. So quick, what was Brokeback Mountain about? Just kidding. I feel like I've already seen it. Not so with some of the others. I'm going to see Brokeback this week since it's still at the theatres and I can squeeze in a matinee while Girlie's at school. If anything is on DVD, I'll find it at Blockbuster and give it a look before next week. What shouldn't I miss? In the meantime, I'm diving into the latest book by Stephen King called "Cell." Don't anybody call me or otherwise try to contact me tonight (and for God's sake no cell phone pranks!). I'm going for full immersion and I'm a very fast reader. I'll let you know what I thought at Tampa Book Buzz in a couple of days (it's the book club pick for Feb.). Ciao!

A History of Violence and The Constant Gardener. Neither were nominated for Best Picture, but for the first time I can remember I haven't seen any of the Best Pic nominees. Those two were fantastic, though.

Crash is can't miss IMHO... It is really just... blunt? It seems to say honestly what a lot of people have on their mind at any given time with regards to race. Certain situations and what not...

I also think that Matt Dillion should be a shoe in for best supporting actor for his portrayal as a racist cop. You gotta see it...
