I'm more than happy for Meryl because I thought that she was brilliant in Julie and Julia. I really think even now that she will win because... Well I'll explain it in a later post because I need a lot of space to do that. I just say: go Meryl and beat these newcomers! (please no hate comments, I'm not a die-hard Meryl fan, but I really want her to win)
Well Mo'Nique gave the best supporting performance of the decade so now surprise here. She gave the best performance of 2009 so no wonder she won.
I'm very happy for Jeremy Renner too, because he really needs critic's support to get the nomination. I haven't seen The Hurt Locker yet, but I'm planning to because I have it.
About Christoph Waltz: I liked the movie, but I think his performance is waaaaaay overrated and I don't think he should win. But maybe it's just me who's tired of villians winning. Or if they have to win, then at least they should be deserving.

I'm glad Mo'Nique won. The other wins disappoint me though.
