A Fantasy League for the Rest of Us, Part One Million

Tonight were the Broadcast Film Critic Choice Awards. I only watched because my mom has cable and she was home sick tonight.

But I'm glad I did because now I am ready for the Oscar nominations on the 31st.

I will spare you the full list of nominees and winners though you can read them here. Here are the highlights:

Paul Giamatti got his props at last and won the award for best supporting actor ("Cinderella Man"). Last year they denied him the best actor nod for his fine performance in "Sideways."

Every child actor since Jodi Foster was nominated for best young actor/actress and in a surprise move, the Critics gave it to Dakota Fanning.

"Brokeback Mountain" did win best picture and Ang Lee best director. This is a telltale sign since five of the six winners in the past six years have gone on to win the Oscar. I am resigned. The good news is Jake Gyllenhal and Heath Ledger won nothing and the perennially overlooked Philip Seymour Hoffman won best actor.

The adorable and apparently incredible Reese Witherspoon (isn't that a funny last name?) won for "Walk the Line."

The best news? "Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were Rabbit" wins best animated featured.

Go Paul G.! That's my favorite win of the night, and I think he'll get the Oscar, because they know they've screwed him over two years in a row (Sideways last year, and American Splendor the year before).

We'll have to post our official predictions for the Golden Globes this weekend, as the awards are on Monday (what's up with that, by the way?)

Was he nominated for American Splendor or was he just overlooked all around?

I'm thrilled that the awards are on Monday since I will be at greater liberty to watch them. Hurray!

nope, never nominated, at least not at the Oscars. I hate it when the Oscars give "sorry we've screwed you over before, will you forgive us if we give you one now?" awards, but Gimatti could get an award for every movie he's in!
