  1. I am happy that Melissa McCarthy was nominated as well. I think it’s one of the best comedic performances I have ever seen! …and I am impressed that the Academy chose Bridesmaids (a comedy) to be included in the Original Screenplay category….because I can’t remember another time when there has been a comedy on there! But…I am disappointed that Mia Wachiowska (I don’t know how to spell it) wasn’t nominated for Jane Eyre for Leading Actress !!! She was awesome! …and seriously…ummmm so I saw War Horse last week, and it was really good, but it was also really “Disney-fied” if you know what I mean…I am not sure if it deserves to be in the “Best Picture” category. Not too sure about that one.
