>Whew< ... that party was so much fun to host. Today I will be cleaning up after it. If you're just joining the Oscar Symposium conversation, you'll want to start from day one. But if you've been playing along, here's the wrap up.
In which Best Actress is discussed and Nathaniel discovers a bunch of Marion Cotillard supporters in his house (blasphemy, the Oscar must be Christie's!), the participants offer the Lovely Laura Linney free advice on how she might finally win that Oscar and we end with a party game -- make like Ruby Dee in American Gangster and Hal Holbrook from Into the Wild: choose a film, person, or filmthing to slap or adopt.
You know you want to play this game in the comments. Let's hear from everyone... even the lurkers. Who do you want to just hug and protect and who needs some sense knocked into them? (But first go and read the symposium)
