First off, damn, I love that both Kate Winslet and Ralph Fiennes each got two nominations. I know that he doesn't have a shot at hell in winning in either category, but after seeing him slighted for The Constant Gardener, it's fabulous seeing him at least get the recognition again. As for Winslet, I think this REALLY will be her year for a win. Man, if both she and Leo won this year, man, I might actually cry. As for the rest listed above, I'm just thrilled because I love all of those actors and it's so nice seeing so many names from actors I adore. And I LOVED Mamma Mia!, so seeing that there was a lovely treat. The one surprise (and disappointment) was seeing Brad nominated for TCoBB, but NOT Cate Blanchett. Ah well.

BEYOND aadorable interview with Kate & Leo from EW! Seriously, if you don't "aww" at least once while reading this interview, you don't have a heart. For reals!I heart them so much!!! But I'm one of those whose never thought of them hooking up though because they're so adorably brother-sister/best friends.

Re: Top Chef -- no spoilers, just want to say, man, Jeff is SO yummy!! I swear he gets hotter every week.

Finally, I must confess that I'm rather really, really enjoying Britney Spears' new CD, "Circus." It's actually really good! (Well, most of it. "Mmm, Papi" rather sucks. But "Unusual You" and "Blur" are gorgeous, and "If You Seek Amy" is fun. I know, I know, I'm 12, but it IS.)
