TSR Buzz: 'True Grit' With Subtitles, Natalie Portman's Award-Winning Giggle

With TSR Buzz, you’ll find links to articles, videos and other random things that will help you waste your time just a little bit more.

  • Now that True Grit is Oscar-nominated, it's time to take a look back on Jeff Bridges' overrated performance (in my opinion) and try to make sense of what the hell Rooster Cogburn was saying.

  • Natalie Portman is on a swift track to her first Oscar with her performance in Black Swan. Before then, she might want to brush up on her podium presence. As my friend said, "She has the laugh of a creepy ex-girlfriend." Special Brendan Fraser bomb at the end!
