Hmm, I think you made some pretty good picks here. I loved Juno! I hope it wins a few.

I've seen about 1/3 of I'm Not There, and it was good. I watch a lot of movies online, but usually the quality is poor.

Juno was great! I don't get how you young'uns have the patience to sit through an entire movie online. It's so different from seeing it at a movie thee-ay-ter.
