"While it doesn't seem groundbreaking, I know I will watch it eventually because of the four legends in the cast." - Rebecca

"Adored both Bergen and Keaton (and Garcia!), liked Fonda and unfortunately, thought Steenburgen kind of drew the short straw here. Overall, had a ball!" - Andrew

Day of Rest

I need 101 Days of Sleeping but a single day must suffice. In the meantime there's a lot for you to catch up on like The Best of January, voting on who should win on each individual Oscar chart, all the Sundance reviews - forty-two of 'em!, and 14 whole anticipatory episodes of We Can't Wait aimed at 2014.

You should also check out this Variety report behind the Academy's reasoning for disqualifying "Alone Yet Not Alone" from the Original Song field which we were talking about just on Wednesday. Again, I really wish they would look into the music branch for MANY changes, not just this stand alone decision. They've done it before with Documentaries and Foreign Film and they have to have noticed by now how deeply troubled the music branch is, right? Oh god please tell me they've noticed!

We'll be back Sunday early evening yapping like an excited puppy for one final month of Oscar '13 madness.

It isn't true about Philip Seymour Hoffman, is it? Oh God.
