    Wow, nice! But I think “The best film of the year so far” is a better quote, isn’t it? Wonder why they used this instead

    I sure hope they use this in another tv spot…..
    “Completely takes the bad taste of James Franco’s attempt to host the Oscars out of your mouth.”

    Jon, the big difference is my quote on The Hurt Locker poster was only seen by a few hundred people as red carpet backdrop in a few limited release lobbies. Sasha’s quote is being seen by millions.

    So who’re we gonna admire more?
    (extra careful with that apostrophe!)

    Since your quote got on tv, you can be just as smug as the monkey on the screen.

    That’s not “smug”! That’s “ever stalwart!”

    Taji appreciates the compliments but would like to remind everyone that he’s only helping host the celebration from a remote perimeter of the spotlight. No, really.

    Because I look like a crazy person for saying so. :-) No one in their right mind would – but since I’m not in my right mind I get a pass.

    Thanks you all!! TAJI!!!

    To think I used to visit this site YEARS AGO with it was modest but still VERY informative. You guys have a come a LONG way.

    Much congrats to Sasha, Ryan, and the rest of the Awards Daily family.

    If this is the best film of the year so far, we are lost. This thing is positively maudlin, unfunny, and so chronilogically challenged as to be utter senseless. How did they manage a worse film than even the original ones?

    Congrats Sasha! WOWOWOW! I’ll alert the media!…Oh, we are the media…

    Never liked those first monkey movies, but now…looks like I’ve got to see this…

    For those who must have MORE Andy Serkis…He’s the choreographer. Yes, Gilbert and Sullivan’s extememly camp cockney CHOREOGRAPHER of “The Mikada” in Mike Leign’s blissful “Topsy Turny.”

    OK, seeing this one on the next days… but on the BP nom thing, it simply can’t beat HP on B.O., Metacritic and RottenTomatoes the distance is too big, already. Another issue is how WB and Fox are going to hand the campaigning, but Fox is likely to settle pleading for technicals only, maybe a not-too-convinced suggestion for Serkis.
