I'm hoping the Academy Awards are a bit different, tbh. This list of winners was quite predictable. I was a bit sad to see Charlize Theron get beat out by Viola Davis. Theron was fantastic in Young Adult. I am also shocked to see Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross get beat for Best Original Score. The score they put together for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was better than the one for The Social Network and they swept the award shows with that score. I don't understand.

Here's to the Golden Globes this weekend. The winners will probably be quite similar.
