Summer Glau for best actress and Terminator for best drama?! You've got to be kidding me. The tubey voters have no taste. And i've always liked Helen Hunt, it'd be good to see more of her on screen.

Love Helen Hunt, though her latest movie - Then She Found Me - was terrible.

I love Helen Hunt, and hope that she's a good fit for the role -- her energy's a bit more wry/witty than Tierney's.
