Agreed! Y tu mamá también is the best out of those five.

All ladies were great, but I hope a bit more that Julianne Moore - cuase I don't think she will win best actress award.

AND I hope that award for SHORT FILM (ANIMATED) will go to Polish guy Tomek Baginski and his movie THE CATHEDRAL :cheesy:
