  1. Do I get a prize? I have seen not 1, not 2, but ZERO of the nominated films. I think this is a first for me. I am, however, very keen on seeing the much-anticipated “Hotel for Dogs,” which is, I believe, being released this Friday, no?

  2. zero films? that’s a little sad, of the top films i would definitely catch Slumdog Millionaire, it even has dog in the title but don’t be fooled, it’s no Hotel for Dogs, which is playing in theaters now…

  3. I can’t believe that stupid BButton was nominated and Dark Knight wasn’t. Most overhyped movie since Titanic.
