I’m really glad I do not have to vote for the top awards, as I would have a hard time choosing one among such very good movies and performances. Just take a look at the nominees for best actress Helen Mirren or Marion Cotillard? And I also include Ksenia Rappoport. This is very difficult decision… hmm, if I have to choose I’ll chose Marion Cotillard as her work in La Môme is extraordinary and outstanding! But also Helen and Ksenia are great! Hard.

So, next December 1st we will know what happens.
