    Hope she wins, it was an incredible performance. But at the same time being nominated at such a young age is still a huge deal.

    @Jason: Just because she doesn’t look like pretty much every hollywood actress who undergo every possible surgery to look like barbie dolls does not make her a man.

    Actually if you read what critics like Ebert say, Streep and Close didn’t deserve nomination this year but of course Academy loves to give them nominations for every single role.

    Glad Rooney got her nomination, she was Lisbeth I’ve imagined from the books.

    She got a shiz load of piercings for her role. It’s obvious she took it seriously. I’ve never liked the plot of it – book and movie. The ending is such a disappointment but nevertheless, the played the role perfectly.

    Stop hating on this girl. She literally ruined her body, worked her azz off, and changed herself completely for this role and I’m glad she got nominated because she deserves it. Good for her.

    @Jenna: Nobody who has seen the original movie would comment that. Understandable though since Americans cannot follow a movie not in English.
