Kate Winslet in a supporting role in The Reader… hmm! What they do to not nominate her twice for best actress!!! As we all know these nominations are more similar to the Oscars nominations in the actor’s categories, so in the best actress I’m glad that they included Melissa Leo that has been honored with many awards and nominations in many fests around the world. Also that they included Richard Jenkins in the Best Actor.

But one thing is sure, the awards ceremony will be full of good and “celebrity” actors from the big and little screen, so has to be watched for entertaining purposes, isn’t?
