Featured Comment by Ed Kirkpatrick: "That would have been Sandra Bullock."
Mike replies: Thanks Ed. Speaking of SB, she's quite witty isn't she? I mentioned a while back that I've never seen one of her movies, but maybe I need to go see "The Blind Side."
I was rather shocked that they doubled the number of Best Picture nominees to ten and I still hadn't seen a single one of them. I do have the video for "Food Inc." here in the stack, if that counts—I think it was nominated for Best Documentary, although I think the guy who got censored for his save-the-dolphins sign was the winner in that category.

For making me practice every day when I got home. Piano, ballet, whatever it is I wanted to be. She said to be an artist, you had to practice every day....'"
