EMOTIONS...

For ENSEMBLE, I guess you could call that a TRIUMPH IN CASTING FOR FILM too! Heh.

There are some movies with two people given nods on this list but not in the ensemble thing because I felt like two or maybe even three people would be okay to list individually when I don't feel strongly about the rest of the cast.
