    One of the year’s best films, Warrior will be No. 1 next week and there will be Oscars for all involved.
    It’s written in the stars.

    @ Skys – If she gets nominated, this would be Viola’s second Oscar nomination. Her first was for best supporting actress with Meryl Steep and Philip Seymour Hoffman in Doubt.

    i saw the movie too. it’s a very good film and deserves all the accolades and continuous #1 spot every week.

    FYI: read the book , you’ll find yourself purposely slowing down near the end because you dont want it to finish. that’s how good the book is and why the movie is doing soooo well!

    Bravo to “The Help”!

    However, when did Emma Stone become the “star” of this movie? Emma does a fine job but Viola Davis is getting all the Oscar buzz and Octavia Spencer practically hijacks the entire film.

    And, congrats to “The Debt” ( Adore Helen Mirren)

    @Tina Temple,

    LOL: Give your copy/paste buttons a rest, hon. You’ve posted the exact same message on about 50 blogs now.

    We get that you’re excited about “Warrior” but, I doubt that their PR company is going to cut you any checks.
