    I like the idea of Carey as Daisy, but I’m still not sold on Leo Di Caprio as Gatsby.

    Emma doesn’t really look as good as she ussually does in premiers in that photo but every other nerd I know is all over that photo for some reason.

    The qoute is from Goblet of Fire btw. I’m loving how ever site I go to is getting ready for Friday.

    By the way have you seen this video?

    Rooney Mara-No, I’d rather not see her nominated. I have no trouble with short performances getting nominated (Davis, Straight, and Dench all made my personal slate), but she’s not amazing.

    The quote is from…darn it Jose!

    That trailer…LOL.
