    This is a great list! Thank you so much for putting all of it in one place. I agree that Leo got snubbed for his role in J Edgar. He truly became the character in that movie and I would have loved to see him recognized.

    Are we gonna get predictions?

    • the best bet will be to taalk about it with the asirtt you plan to have do the actual tattoo. they will know what will look best and shoudl be able to get what you want down.
