Those three winners are already very popular... I have to admit Sean Penn's acting never fades. As for the 2 actresses, no comment. ^^

I have never seen these films but hopefully I can digg them here in NL at least on DVDs. I started hunting out for DVDs and my weekend was with 6 films.. at least now I know where to find them and good that DVDs always have the language preference as well as caption options.
