  6. so happy for Rob.the scene for Paul Giamatti is deserving of best actor nomination.

    1. So true. In fact Paul Giamatti as supporting actor would have been great.

  7. We need to thank David Cronenberg for seeing,not just a Handsome young actor,adored all over the world by millions of women.But a very talented very serious actor, who wasn't interested in Big Budget movies. He wanted to work with the Best Directors and David Cronenberg is up there with the best.
    Rob was mesmerising in the Eric Packer role.And his scene with Paul Giamatti was mind
    blowing."Cosmopolis" is the best movie of 2012,and also the most underated movie.Well done Rob,it is most deserving.
