Hey Tom, I totally agree with your picks of "Temple Grandin" and "You Don't Know Jack" great movies, but " A Dog Year?" are you crazy? The movie was shot 4 years ago as a theatrical feature, and never released. HBO premiered it on a Thursday night at 8pm, which it generally fills with reruns of “Entourage." Doesn't that tell you something?... I like Jeff Bridges just as much as everybody in Hollywood but not in this dog of a movie...sorry but not Emmy worthy. Also can't agree with your choice of "Georgia O'Keefe" (Lifetime) -it was like watching paint dry! Joan Allen and Jeremy Irons had NO chemistry/passion at all. From your possible list- "Amish Grace" and "Endgame" should move on to your Best list.
