Too funny that a movie about a rat that supposedly was a flop (over $600mil worldwide is not a flop)comes through for the mouse. Good job.

Let's hope one of the songs from Enchanted wins. I love them all.

Noticed that Johnny Depp got another nomination for Sweeney Todd. I would like to see it. Heard it's bloody.
