    I’d like to see Michael Shannon from “Take Shelter” win. Anyone here remember him as Kim Basinger’s boyfriend in “8 Mile” ? He sings “Sweet Home Alabama.”

    @ #1 – He was also in Revolutionary Road with Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio and Katy Bates. He played Bates son, John Givings. He received an Oscar nomination for that role.

    Is there a ‘Best Music’ from a film category? If so, I recommend the music from the musical saw scene in ‘Another Earth’. You can hear it on the composer’s website

    Why wasn’t Kirsten Dunst nominated for Best Actress for Melancholia? She won at Cannes! How strange.

    Anyone here remember him as Kim Basinger’s boyfriend in “8 Mile” ? my friends told me about BlackWhitePlanet– c-0- mShe told me it is the best place to meet black and white singles whoever you want. I have tried. It is fantastic. You wanna get laid tonight? Come in and give it a shot, you will find someone you like there. Black or white even interracial one. Have fun! You may find me there!
