    She gave an awful performance in the worst film of the year.

    If you can’t act and appear in the worst movie of 2007, you might as well be rewarded for the accomplishment.

    She looks like she could be expecting in that photo…

    Kids don’t make for reliable film critics; how many of them even saw Lynch’s “Inland Empire” or Eastwood’s “Letters from Iowo Jima?”

    I agree with Anonymous, those awards are a JOKE! Does anyone REALLY think Watson was more deserving than Helen Mirren for “The Queen?!?!” Obviously, it all comes down to money; art doesn’t enter into it.

    Was SAW III even nominated??

    Scorsese was robbed again, I see…:(

    Did THE BROTHERS SOLOMON or PERFUME: THE STORY OF A MURDERER win something at least?

    “Silk” was the year’s best movie and it was completely shut out of the awards.

  12. Fanny Mann • October 23, 2007 @ 6:46 AM

    If these awards prove anything, it’s that voters aren’t looking for originality. Oh well, maybe next year…

    OK HUMBLE HOWIE–HELL-O! Um, perhaps if KIDS were watching movies with Helen Mirren in it, then perhaps she could be nominated, but for heaven’s sake HH! It does NOT come down to money, you fool, it comes down to what the KIDS (their awards show) think and want. You all are pretty nuts to take this seriously, obviously kids don’t have the “distinguished”, as you have put it, opinions to vote for these listed movies (by the way, Anon, 5:22 pm, it’s “Iwo” and not “Iowo”. If you’re gonna be opinionated and bitchy about something, at least know your “product”). The only thing these awards “prove” is that you’re all too serious and need to loosen up on the young’ns! WOW

    GREAT JOB EMMA!!! We love you so much-you are such a great actress! Everyone is proud of you. Acting is harder than it looks, especially when you are starring in one of the most loved and popular movie series of all time. Remember that no one will ever make everyone happy.

  15. Anonymous • October 24, 2007 @ 3:36 AM

    All those movies are crap! And Mirren definitely should have won.

    Flags of Our Fathers beats The Simpsons any day.

    How did “Hostel 2” do?

  18. Honest Phil • October 24, 2007 @ 3:47 AM

    I agree with Randy — in that photo it looks like there’s a baby on board…

  19. Preening Gas Bag • October 24, 2007 @ 8:39 AM

    So Watson’s got a bun in the oven?

  20. Sherlock Groans • October 24, 2007 @ 8:42 AM

    “So Watsons got a bun in the oven?”

    It’s elementary, Dear Gas Bag! A bit awkward, but elementary all the same!

    LOL — Avril Lavigne won Best Female Singer!!!

  22. Dave Bottoms • October 24, 2007 @ 9:03 AM

    Watson is one of my favourite actresses. She was was absolutely amazing in “Breaking the Waves.” This honour is well-deserved.

  23. Anonymous • October 24, 2007 @ 10:07 AM

    Emma ROBERTS should have won Best Actress.

  24. Kim Possible • October 24, 2007 @ 10:09 AM

    See “Breaking the Waves” and you’ll take that back!

    I’m with Howie — if you’re not going to see some of the year’s better-regarded films, you have no business handing out awards.

  26. Magnificent Merle • October 24, 2007 @ 9:48 PM

    THE SIMPSONS MOVIE beat out THE DEPARTED?!?! That’s just WRONG!!! I’m SO sick of award shows kow-towing to box-office numbers.

  27. Anonymous • October 24, 2007 @ 9:50 PM

    Watson hasn’t made a decent picture since “Breaking the Waves.”

  28. Walter Hale • October 24, 2007 @ 9:53 PM

    “Watson hasnt made a decent picture since Breaking the Waves.”

    Not true — Nancy Drew was one of the best of the year.

  29. Anon • July 23, 2008 @ 7:41 AM

    It was EMILY Watson in Breaking The Waves.
