    I love me some Tarantino but I’ll admit to being conflicted about seeing the movie.

    I saw it. Enjoyed it.

    And Waltz was tremendous. I’d put it in your Netflix queue.

    I’ve heard that about Waltz’s performance – but to be honest – I hadn’t seen the movie yet. Even hearing his performance, I went for the upset there.

    However, you should have gone with my picks, man… had a late comeback surge by getting Sandra Bullock and The Hurt Locker correct – winning by one. Woo!

    I want to know what the winner gets.

    Actually you guys only differ on three categories.

    I’ve got to side with Wife on Christopher Waltz. That was one of the best performances I’ve seen in years.
