Never got to the theater after all. But I did watch Brave on pay-per-view, and it was glorious.
I'm sticking with Argo for my best picture candidate. A real movie-movie, not a film, but the balance of action-suspense, humor, and historical exposition was pitch-perfect. Assured movie-making all the way.
Stilll working on the actor categories. I do think DD Lewis deserves one for Lincoln. That was not only an amazing physical transformation, but he made the character so multi-faceted and complex. Even better than Joaquin Phoenix, and I thought that was an incredible performance.
