    Jim Sheridan for Brothers? Oh god. That film was rubbish.

  • ssconnolly

    The nominees for best international film were a bit unusual. But hey whatever. Think Rockwell should've got bet international actor instead of Downey Jr. But at least someone remembered to nominate him. Can't wait to see that Zonad film. Didn't win anything but it looks great. Might have to give The Eclipse a look now.,

    Know it is not movie related, but am delighted Elaine Cassidy won best actress in a tv show for Harper's Island. Thought she had no chance due to it being for an american show. Well deserved.
