    I haven’t heard one interview where Kate has talked about Angelina, and I’ve watched her on EVERYTHING! I love them both (Angie and Kate) and think both performances were worthy of noms. I hate that Revolutionary Road wasn’t nominated for anything else. I SO wanted to see Leo there, but Brad’s Benjamin Button was nominated for it ALL! I’m so proud of you BRADLEY!!!

    Leo was snubbed because he didn’t ***** himself out like Brad. It just goes to show if you ***** yourself out then you can get a nom.
