Hi! I love your blog and read it all the time by the way.

I think you may have made a mistake under the best original screenplay nomination. You have the Artist listed twice, once like this:Annie Mumolo & Kristen Wiig, The Artist

I think that should be for Bridesmaids.

I haven't seen very many of these films yet as they haven't played anywhere near me.

Haha. I about fell off my chair when I read Wiig wrote The Artist.

Thanks for posting these, you were the first site in my reader to do so!
