Various Bits

Good pose shown here. I second the idea the Kirsten Scott Thomas deserved an Oscar nod, and the excessive votes for The Reader and Slumdog Millionaire (even shoving aside Bruce Springsteen!) were lame. Rachel McAdams of The Lucky Ones also c(sh)ould have got a nod. Picks were overall probably fair enough. More in February. And, Conan O'Brien had some fun with Obama's "end of childish things" comment in his inaugural. The referenced biblical quote was also addressed in Converting Kate. And, yeah: grow up people!
