Comments & Discussion:

I agree about "True Grit". I don't know how it could lose.
I think that a special category should be made for Tron, though. Something like "The 80's movie sequel/reboot that doesn't suck or cheapen childhood memories like the way that the new Star Wars trilogy did (even thought I watched all of them in the theater about 7 times each) category".

What???? No love for The Expendables?!?!? Best Supporting Actor Dolph Lundgren!!!

I think Sly's girdle should get the best supporting actor nod

@saharalv: in addition to Star Wars, don't forget "Indiana Jones." Apologies for the reminder to those who already, mercifully, did....

donnymac, Spyder: grr, are you yuks trying to join misnomer in making me blow coffee?! ;)
