  1. I thought Stuhlbarg might’ve pulled a nod over Freeman/Clooney but it didn’t happen.

  2. Awesome lot of awards, I’d take a lot of these over the ACTUAL nominees (which I guess is the point), especially Mackie and Stuhlberg. And Meatballs, which I loved!

  3. Ha! The suck it award. I like that. Pretty good picks for the most part, especially the highly underrated Michael Stuhlbarg and Karen O song for Where the Wild Things Are. Was that omitted from the Oscars out of a qualification issue or was it just like the Bruce Springsteen song last year where the Academy is just a bunch of morons on that category?

    Kudos to you for recognizing Michael Stuhlbarg for his awesome performance that got sorely overlooked by the Academy. He made a very wimpy character empathetic and quietly funny.

    Thank every deity ever named for the fact that “Blind Side” didn’t win Best Picture. If it had, the world was over. It’s almost over because Bullock won Best Actress.


    • Well, it wasn’t me. The people voting have spoken. They made it happen. I’m glad that Blind Side didn’t win Best Picture. If it did, I would throw my hands up. I don’t care that Sandy Bullock won a fucking Oscar. What parallel universe are we in?

      Anyway, I said with great power comes, great responsibility. Now, she has to be more conscience of her choices. Not doing a Miss Congeniality 3 or another All About Steve. Have movies of substance.
