    I generally agree with your Green suggestions, though I don’t think the score for ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ deserved to win, and I really disagree that James Franco should have won, especially up against Colin Farrell’s brilliantly funny, offensive and quite moving turn in ‘In Bruges’.

    James Franco pulled out a great performance in my eyes. He kept the Pineapple Express chuggin’ along in my opinion. All the blues deserved their orbs, would have been nice to shake it about it.
