Not planning on tuning in, never been one to watch the award shows. Worse yet I haven't seen any of those movies yet, but I am looking forward to watching No Country for Old Men, Atonement, and Michael Clayton. Not familiar with the other two...

No Country for Old Men was my favorite of the nominees - good acting plus the plot is great, very suspenseful with quirky humor thrown in.

I am not planning on watching. I think they are a scam. The people who judge which movies get awards are not even required to have seen the movies.

My wife will watch though. She wants to see all the dresses.

I won't watch them, not my thing. I do love seeing the worst dressed after though, always good for a laugh!

Juno and No Country For Old Men are 2 of my favorite movies of last year. Would be nice if they won but I think the whole thing is a joke really!

I just want to see what kind of material Jon Stewart comes up with in the two weeks he had to prepare. I love Jon and I probably will tune in for a little bit, but I haven't seen any of the "Best Picture" nominations either.
