Good Lord, just three nominations for best animated film? And those??? none of them were spectacularly awful I thought, but none really stick in my mind.

Maybe this is the niche we should all be exploiting? I know I haven't seen an animated film I've REALLY liked for ages. And parents are a good market - we HAVE to watch whether we like it or not, so at least let us enjoy it...

Glad to see Viggo Mortensen finally get some recognition; shame he's going to be pipped to the post by DDL.

The Simpsons. I think the Brits will vote for them while the Oscars will give it to Ratatooey.
