    I liked it but it wasn't outstanding. The first half was better than the second half. The two leads were very good though.

    So well-deserved. Hoping it foreshadows strong Oscar campaigns. Rooting for Bening to win (FINALLY!) ... she made TKAAR soar when it could've been a drag. And for Duvall to get a nomination ... he was so damned good in Get Low.

    I haven't seen Get Low, but I love Robert Duval. I'm really excited for Annette Benning, she was great in The Kid's Are All Right, which is very underrated in my opinion.
