    Wow, what an ugly takedown. Jealous much?

    Oh, lord, please no DJANGO. How QT is considered a serious filmmaker is beyond me. BASTERDS was one of the worst Best Picture nominees of all time.

    Hathaway is wonderful but the early push is because featured in trailer because that was the finished part at the time and featured only at beginning and then close for final number. Barks actually has a larger role and she gets to die in a big way while singing "A Little Drop of Rain".

    Wow. Supporting Actors but no Writers. No mention of the ones who look at nothing and see something! Thank Jesus for everyone's improvisational skills!
