I usually don't see movies till they get to the $2 shelves in Blockbuster, so I can't comment myself, but I was taken with a comment by Roger Ebert, my favourite reviewer, in his piece on Monster... (concerning Charlize Theron's role)
This is one of the greatest performances in the history of the cinema.
That made me sit up and take notice!
Having seen none of the nominated performances for best actor, I'm not going to suggest that any of them were unworthy, but what I will say is that if there were five better performances during the year than Jack Nicholson in About Schmidt, it must have been a bumper year.
I couldn't give a flying f*** about them........ My daughter is currently watching the 'red carpet' bit, where all the so called stars will be arriving. There is much in the papers about who will will wearing what, Jimmy Choo's and Manolos, which cost what ordinary families live on for a month.
It is, imho, quite disgusting when there are people starving all over the planet.
Gee, where to start ? I would like to thank Rollingthunder for starting this thread and Binoculars for being the first to reply to it; and also many thanks are due to, in no particular order, Mrs Carn for having young Anthony so he could contribute; to Techchick for being so understanding; now who else is there ? musn't forget IFTB for his rather long winded but invaluable contribution, and Grainger for his considered opinion, finally it could not have been done without The Invisible Man. Thanks a million folks, I will treasure this thread.
My I say how humbled I am at the award. Its taken years of hard work to achieve what I am now. ( toss*r??)
I want to thank my Mum, Dad, brothers and sister, My wife Mrs T.I.M , without whose support, this post could not have been made.
The others in this post deserve a big thank you, because without their thoughts, time and input, I would never have been able to rise to the challenge. ( just got to wipe a little tear from my eye....blub....blub !!!)
I will treasure this day forever, thank you so much, thank you, thank you
