ME-Says Awards or If I Had An Oscar Ballot

I thought this was a great year for movies and particularly performances. I would have liked to have 8 noms for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress (where I cheated and put in 6). It was hard to decide who to take out. Sorry Barbara Hershey, Nicole Kidman, Amanda Peet, Patricia Clarkson, and Keira Knightley. And I didn't have a spot for Jim Carrey in Best Actor.
