The Week In Awesome! Ponyo and More

Here are the things that excited me the most this week!

Ponyo on DVD!  Hayao Miyazaki's latest animaton masterpiece hits DVD this week (one version with a stuffed Ponyo).  I'm still baffled on how the Academy could pass this film up for a nomination.

This beautiful movie trailer of Zack Snyder's Legend of the Guardians, based on the popular kids series Guardians of Ga'Hoole, featuring owls.

The Crazies getting crazy-good reviews makes me excited to see a horror movie again after a bunch of disappointments.

The Real Housewives of New York debuted on Bravo this week, bringing long-missed Bethany and Jill back to my TV!

Only a few more days until the Academy Awards are on!   My predictions:
Best Picture: The Hurt Locker
Best Director: Kathryn Bigelow - The Hurt Locker
Best Actor: Jeff Bridges - Crazy Heart
Best Actress: Carey Mulligan - An Education (I want an upset here)
Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz - Inglourious Basterds
Best Supporting Actress: Mo'Nique - Precious
Best Animated Film: Up
Best Foreign Film: The White Ribbon

Also, the roster for the new New Avengers team is slowly being revealed by Marvel, like the earlier announced Avengers teams.  Included are Luke Cage, Spider-Man, Wolverine, The Thing and Jessica Drew.
