* "I read this site all the time and even e-mail you and no one e-mailed asking my opinion!"  Unlike Trina, we didn't think to e-mail regular readers and ask them who they wanted.  (Trina's post where she picks Cate Blanchett also includes her readers responding to her e-mail about what food they plan to serve at their Oscar parties.)  We wish we would have.  This was 142  readers who e-mailed on their own, just to offer their views.  For those doing the math, there are 143 votes -- but from 142 readers.  While 141 e-mails noted one choice they were rooting for, Denise let us know she would pick American Hustle for Best Film and Jennifer Lawrence for Best Supporting Actress.
