Staines Rebel - I make you right which is probably why Keira Knightly wasn't nominated, she's as flat as a pancake

I think juno may be a supprise i beleive it cost 3 to 4 million dollars and has already grossed around 100 million dollars also any thing with Daniel day- lewis in it always gives 200 percent in his acting, and may be- No country for old men, may be in with a shout. Anyway is there an oscar for the biggest boobs Staines Rebel? laugh

“Atonement”
“Juno”
“Michael Clayton”
“No Country for Old Men”
“There Will Be Blood”

No Country For Old Men won both best picture and best Director(s) which surprised me, they certainly don't make films like they used to, Casablanca, The African Queen, The Philadelphia Story, It's A Wonderful Life etc!

Blue Fan - Thanks for that, yes 'timeless' sums it up in one and what about the Fred Astaire films such as Top Hat and Follow the Fleet, it's all violence and swearing these days.

After seeing her in-comprehensible acceptance speech on TV, I can understand her coming from inbred aristocracy! crazy
