  1. Laura Dern must be over the moon! How great Bruce Dern finally got such a prestigious award, how great is that!

  2. Oh great. Now Justin Timberlake will claim this as his own success. And will show up in his “smart glasses” on every premiere of Inside Llewyn Davis in December. Like he is main star of the movie. Like he did in Cannes when he outshine that poor actor who was lead.

    1. I hope Carey Mulligan won’t have to be paired up with Timberlake for all the press on this film. He basically ran over her and dominated all of their joint interviews with gigantic ego.

      1. Well maybe that fact that he has small supporting role there. He was shown for 2 seconds in trailer, then some critic jokes that cat had more screen time then Justin. It was funny when Pajiba in their review didn’t even mentioned Timberlake.

        Yet he has huge ago and was parading himself in Cannes like he was Leading Actor of that movie. Completely outshined that small known actor who is actually Lead. It was so funny when some movie-news site called Inside Llewyn Davis “Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake movie”. I died. Justin fans will be surprised when they will come to see “Justin’s movie” and instead they would have to watch some other guy.

        We all remember how Justin was hoping for Oscar and was campaigning so hard and noticeable that people began to laugh. And then he even tried to laugh it off on SNL sketch. That’s how ridiculous it become. And for some reason he showed up on every première in Smart Glasses. Like it would make him look as more serious actor or something.

        I remember how last year Kristen Stewart had small role in On The Road. Yet she was everywhere; on carpet, interviews, magazine cover promoting it like she was Lead.

  3. Go Bruce Dern!!! I can’t wait to see the movie. You should have had tons of moments like this ’cause you’ve always been excellent… weird or maybe creepy, but excellent!

  4. Bruce Dern after all these years…WOW! Here’s hoping it’s the beginning of the Road to Oscar for both a journeyman actor AND a true artist.

  5. What a shock…a film promoting homosexuality wins the grand prize! Does any film or TV series or play about gays ever receive a bad review?

  6. “Llewyn Davis” looks very interesting. Good all-around cast, Coen Bros, and Oscar Issaac seems like a real up-&-comer to me. He was good in “Drive” and in “Bourne Legacy.”
