I would love for Mark Ruffalo to win an Oscar. I would just be so happy if he got Best Supporting Actor

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 keep hearing how great the King's Speech is, now I need to see it... hmm, maybe it'll be another movie weekend.

What the heck Leonardo DiCaprio isn't nominated for Best Actor!! Every year I root for him and every year he gets overlooked! Geez!!

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)!

You must read some of the stars reactions to their nominations, some are just hilarious

@ Cathy

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!

big snub

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