"Biutiful" on Jan 25, 2011 @ 11:28 pm

My money is on Javier Bardem in Biutiful. He is brilliant beyond words. I don't think I can ever be disappointed by his acting skills.

I never in a million years would have pegged you for a Leo Fan... interesting. Actually, I'm kind of surpirsed he's been overlooked this long as well.

I've been rooting for Leo since...oh maybe '96 (when Romeo & Juliet came out)!

AGREEEDD! I could not agree more! Leo deserves an Oscar so badly! He has literraly been overlooked for phenomenal performances ever since I can remember. Him and Johnny Depp, are my favorites. I thought he would win for Romeo and Juliet, Titanic, Revolutionary Road, This Boys Life, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, The Departed, Inception, Catch Me if You Can,....the list goes on and on. He's inspiring, and amazing.. ahh!

Just to add on, I think Christopher Nolan should have been nominated for best director- Inception.
