I'm glad she won her SAG. The field of her fellow nominees was really tough. I loved her acceptance speech.
She was great in Burn After Reading too (most were in that movie - Pitt, J.K. Simmons, etc.)
Andy Greenwald said it best in regard to her Golden Globe on-screen spots and it was even further pounded in for me watching her speech last night, "When she's put on screen, her reactions to everything going on are exactly how the normal and unfiltered viewer at home is reacting to things. She's like a completely normal person lost in Hollywood."

Some people were speaking about how the Oscars weren't progressive in putting any African American nominees.
The film is good enough to deserve an Oscar nod, but not much else outside of that.
I really want to know what you thought was lacking in David Oyelowo's MLK Jr. acting performance. No hate, I just thought he was tremendous and should've been a favorite, but he wasn't even nominated.
Completely agree with you on Bradley Cooper not receiving the Oscar nod (the only one from the last three years I thought he deserved was for Silver Linings Playbook - thought he outperformed Lawrence by a MILE in that movie, loved what he brought in that).

I wish there was a channel that aired all eps consistently. You was watching it on Antenna tv right? or Thistv? I noticed basic network tv is coming with all the old time focused channels (Movies, Get, Me, Decades is about to launch)
That Outer Limits is truly wild though. I thought the 90s one was something else. The stories those dudes in the 50s or 60s came up with were pretty surreal. If only the special effects were up to par
but cuz it wasn't they went the extra mile on certain gruesome things to make things more suspenseful and tense.
Yep, Antenna TV
The one I watched was two men and a woman were trapped with a probe. This light froze a man completely and they found out they couldn't go near the light. Then there was this smoke/fog they would get lost in, this strange code they were trying to figure out, decode, send a message to. Also, this disturbing slime/Muk looking alien creature was walking around in the vicinity and getting larger and chasing them around. Just crazy, but had me hooked in when I had my laptop in front of me which is REALLY saying something.
