Another Day, another...

move cross-country. That's right, coming at you from foggy Pacifica, CA, it's.... your overdue news roundup!

First off, and very excitingly, I'm ranked 8th for the winter competition in my box office game (and still in the top 50 overall). I rule.

Secondly, and I will try to write this up in an actual, official way, but Black Swan is incredible. I really, really loved it.

And, the most important news of the day... the SAG noms!

Best Ensemble: Black Swan, The Fighter, The Kids are All Right, The King's Speech, The Social Network.

Definitely going to be rooting for the Fighter and the Social Network in this one.

Best Actor: Jeff Bridges (True Grit), Robert Duvall (Get Low), Jesse Eisenberg (the Social Network), Colin Firth (The King's Speech), James Franco (127 Hours).

Hmm... no Ryan Gosling or Mark Wahlberg. But also no Johnny Depp.

Best Actress: Annette Bening (Kids Are All Right), Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole), Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone), Natalie Portman (Black Swan), Hilary Swank (Conviction).

Wow. Hilary Swank must have the best awards publicist in the biz. Either that, or the guild perversely wants to watch her lose to Annette Bening. Thrilled with the other 3 (I would've put Michelle Williams in over Hilary Swank). I'm glad Nicole Kidman is being welcomed back into critical acclaim now that her forehead moves again. I hope that serves as a life lesson to other actresses.

Supporting Actor: Christian Bale (the Fighter), John Hawkes (Winter's Bone), Jeremy Renner (The Town), Mark Ruffalo (Kids Are All Right), Geoffrey Rush (King's Speech).

THRILLED with John Hawkes being included. He so, so, so deserves it. Jeremy Renner over Andrew Garfield? Was he that much fun to be around last year? What?

Supporting Actress: Amy Adams (the Fighter), Helena Bonham Carter (King's Speech), Mila Kunis (Black Swan), Melissa Leo (the Fighter), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit)

Hmmm... the True Grit love pushes Jacki Weaver out. Interesting.

To keep this from getting too long, I'm going to put the SAG tv noms in another post.
