Ooooh, not this one. First miss. Voted for Michael Shannon, although Brolin was pretty good as well.

I think I voted for Fiennes just because I felt In Bruges deserved something and this was the only category where I felt nobody really stood out over the others.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

At least Milk won *something* but I'd have rather Hirsch win here.
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

Brolin has been better, and I felt Shannon gave the very deffinition of a best supporting performance.
