    LOL.

    Probably 2 or 3 that don't stink.

    And those wouldnt get any mention in 1939.

    One of the ten best pics nominees in 2011 is True Grit - a remake of a mediocre 1969 film where John Wayne got A LIFE ACHIEVEMENT BEST ACTOR OSCAR.

    True Grit was unremarkable. A glorified Disney flick.

    I watched the Oscars when they were hosted by Bob Hope.

    Then after that by Johnny Carson.

    Since then - been hosted by nobodies/no-talents and crud movies

    John Wayne was the worst actor ever.

    The 2010/2011 version of True Grit was superb.

    A very very good movie. Definitely an Oscar contender.

    The young actress, Hailee Steinfeld is an intelligent, charming young lady. She did her role proud. She's a likely winner at the Academy Awards. First in her ROLE: [​IMG]

    Next, in her real life (ok, maybe a little more glamorous than her every day real life): [​IMG]

    Also, The King's Speech is a damn fine flick. Another worthy contender.

    The King's Speech should win. Colin Firth will get best actor.
