A comedy up for Best Picture? - Holy S! Starring Oscar nominated George Clooney. This film is NOT FRENCH!
Another movie with Oscar nominated Brad Pitt and its about the Oakland A's. Yep, that won't win.
THE HELP -
Starring Emma Stone is a heartwarming film set in the 1960's during the civil rights movement.
