    Rango over TinTin?


    • 2movieguys • 3 years ago

      Congrats to 'The Artist'!


      • mattbierwagen • 3 years ago

        Aghh, i still need to see the artist.


        • m2 • 3 years ago

          Glad to see that The Artist is another step closer in taking home the Oscar for Best Picture. I'm pulling for The Artist or The Tree of Life, but as long The Descendants doesn't get it I'll be fine. For some reason I still don't feel that Streep is going to take the Oscar even if she won here.


          • thedude-abides • 3 years ago

            Not a fan


            • corey • 3 years ago

              Each day, more and more, I'm starting to lose my faith in Williams win. I really want to see Michelle win come Oscar night. I really do!

              Anyways, I'm happy with all the other winners.


              • moviegeek • 3 years ago

                Surprising to see Tintin not win animation with the Brits. But I'm so glad to see DuJardin and Streep win! They completely deserve to win the Oscars over the other competitors.


                • SpaceCowboy • 3 years ago

                  Agree for the most part. Tinker was definitely the most British film of all the noms, but Shame deserved that. It's gotten no love anywhere else.


                  • MadJohnsonProductions • 3 years ago

                    The Artist is going to take best picture at the Oscar!
