    BRING BACK PAT RICHTER!!!


    At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

        I did not know: Bret McKenzie (of Flight of the Conchords) was the music supervisor for The Muppets, and wrote "Man or Muppet", one of the (only two?) nominees for Best Original Song.

          That list does seem short to me, too. Granted, I'm not a guy who sees a lot of movies when they're released anymore, but given how many hundreds are released each year, how can there only be two original songs worthy of being nominated?

            My daughter says, "he's not funny now that's he not fat."

            I actually have no idea whether he's still fat or funny, but I like Get Him to the Greek, personally.

            The Oscars site is more evidence that every site needs a "strip out all the goo and just give me a ****ing list" mode.

              It's the way the nomination process is, there probably other songs on nomination ballots, but they didn't get enough votes to meet the threshold for a nomination.

              Edit: And I'm disappointed Armie Hammer didn't get a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for J. Edgar. He was fantastic.

                Rooney is going to get screwed out of an Oscar. Dam you, Meryl (although I haven't see "The Iron Lady," because I heard it was a sh* movie with Streep having an outstanding performance).

                And very surprised that "The Girl With..." didn't even make the cut for Best Picture.
                Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                  Michelle Williams should get the Best Actress award and she still might. Meryl was evidently very good but the movie she was in overall sucked. Did not see "The Girl With..." yet but first timers don't usually get the big award.

                    I was surprised by all the Moneyball love. Perfectly ordinary movie -- nothing to dislike about it -- but Best Actor and Best Picture nominations? Come on.

                    Also if I could go back in time I'd kill John Williams before Hitler.

                      It really should be Viola Davis' award to win.

                        I've heard that as well. I'd have no problem with that. This year could be a lot like 1950 where Gloria Swanson should have won, everyone though Bette Davis was going to win, and in swooped Judy Holliday to win the award.

                        1950 Best Actress Nominees

                        Winnner -JUDY HOLLIDAY in "Born Yesterday", Anne Baxter in "All About Eve", Bette Davis in "All About Eve", Eleanor Parker in "Caged", Gloria Swanson in "Sunset Boulevard"

                            Great reference, but wrong premise.

                            Anne Baxter not getting that Oscar was criminal. Swanson and Davis were scenery chewers in those roles; she acted.

                            Two other things: (1) How many times does a comedienne beat a dramatic role for best actress? (2) What the heck was "Caged"? Sounds like Ilsa: "She Wolf of the SS."

                              Evidently Sacha Baron Cohen's tickets have been revoked until he agrees to not come dressed as the dictator.
