  1. I love Tonight Your Mine. That was a fun little film. These are great choices!

    1. Thanks! Oh, glad to hear you're a fan of TYM as well.

  2. Love these, as usual! I really need to see Nashville...Blind Spot maybe?

    1. Thanks man! Yes. You need to watch Nashville.

  3. Ahah, fun list here Josh! I'm not surprised to see Sandler for The Wedding Singer, I actually like that movie. As for Shia LaBeouf, I actually think he's a decent actor, he lost his way for a while but hey, he seems to be making a comeback. Everyone deserves a second chance.

    1. Thanks Ruth! I've always been a fan of Shia as an actor, so I'm thrilled that he seems to be turning his career around.

  4. Great list! I recently watched Nashville, and god... what a film. Perfect in every single way. That final scene was one of the best I've seen in my lifetime. I have never been a big fan of country music, but I enjoyed the songs from the film!

    I'm also happy there's Zooey Deschanel and Julie Delpy here, I love those two songs.

    1. Thanks! It's a great film, and one of Altman's best. The songs work so well in that movie.

      Deschanel's and Delpy's songs are great, and I love getting to nominate actors or directors in other categories.
