And of course all the other categories which you can find at the link above. Unfortunately as a busy finalist I haven’t yet been able to see the majority of the nominated films, which makes me feel like a very bad cinema fan. I have little doubt that Heath Ledger is in with a *very* good chance of winning his category, but other than that – I have no idea! What are your thoughts on this list? I’d love to hear your picks for any category.
