Other Quick Thoughts:
- No major wins for Sean Penn yet, which I find surprising.
- Heath Ledger has won his first critics awards. Is this the start to a streak that will lead to the Oscar?
- If Slumdog sweeps next week's big critics awards, there's a chance that Danny Boyle could leap over Fincher in the directing race.
- I respect Meryl Streep, but I honestly am not rooting for her to win. Dare I say that I'm sick of her?
- Rachel Getting Married has been getting some early love. Will it translate to the larger critics groups, Globes, and even Oscars?
