Our poll chose Viola Davis for Best Actress; she beat out Meryl Streep with 20% vs. 19%. Christopher Plummer was the clear winner with 51%; tied for second are Max von Sydow and Nick Nolte.

Can't believe the Cinematography Oscar didn't go to The Tree of Life, but they didn't give it to 2001 either. 2001 wasn't even nominated for cinematography.
