    Funny to see Lange four times. She really picked the worst films.

    13 of these won by my count. Strangely, none of them were from the 70s.

    Right?

    And some people said she was downgrading herself when she came to television, but the majority of tv shows she starred in television were actually critically acclaimed and were up for the big categories at the Emmys.

    I love it, I love it, I love it, but I also have my problems with it.

    Nicole Kidman is amazing in Moulin Rouge!

    The film won the Golden Globe and the PGA for Best Motion Picture

    In terms of actors this year it could happen to, the first that comes to mind is Bill Murray, but I’m not predicting it yet.

    If Lindo and Pfeiffer get in, I think that’d be the only nomination for their films.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Of Meryl’s 4, 3 still had enough impact to get Globe Picture noms.

    Only OTT is an overall nonstarter.

    And Music of the Heart too, but it’s not here because of a shitty song nomination. (Hi, Diane!).

    I didn’t realize Charlize was the sole nomination for “Monster”.
