I watched Ray tonight. Believe the hype. It's the best thing I've seen this year.
When we saw Collateral last year, I was a little surprised to see that Jamie Foxx was excellent. I mean, he was above average. I couldn't believe this was the guy in Booty Call. After seeing Ray, I'm in awe. He was really that good. I have a lot of respect for a lot of the guys in the best actor category, but if DiCraprio wins I'll be super-pissed. That guy is a fucking hack.
As for best picture, I haven't seen the other movies, but again, it better not be the DiCraprio movie. Anything is better than that.
