|The Oscar Nominations. What a joke.
The Oscar nominations came out today. I can't even think of one reason I'll watch this year. I'm not excited about any of the nominations. None.
Best Picture Noms:
Babel, The Departed, Letters From Iwo Jima, Little Miss Sunshine, The Queen
Babel is the most pretentious, self-righteous movie I've ever seen. Not only that, but there are so many unecessary threads to the story, that it's distracting. Everyone in the movie does something sexual at some point. And that's saying a lot, considering half of the movie follows the lives of two teenage boys living as goat farmers in some third world country. It's just unecessary.
The only other movie I saw out of that lot is Little Miss Sunshine. And boy was I disappointed in that movie when it ended. I even said out loud, "I don't even know what to think of that movie". It was boring, unoriginal and just plain not that good.
The Departed will probably win because they owe Martin Scorsese like 20 oscars for things he's done in the past, and never won for. I bet you that this years Oscars become "Martin Scorsese Night". He'll win for best picture, best director, and best adapted screenplay. Watch. I can practically guarantee it.
You can google the rest of the nominations yourself. The only other thing I found interesting is that Eddie Murphy is nominated for best supporting actor for his role in "Dreamgirls". Wow. Eddie Murphy. His last....I don't know.....20 movies or so have completely sucked (that aren't named Shrek), and he also plays every role in all of his movies now anyway. Have you seen the trailer for Norbit??!!
