No love at all for Cloud Atlas. Fuck the critics :(

I actually noticed that and thought "TulipO's not gonna like this...."


I don't know if I should have been surprised by this, but I thought Who Did That to You? by John Legend from Django Unchained would have gotten an original song nomination.


I haven't had a Best Picture nominee that I've rooted for that has ended up winning since The Departed, and as I support Django Unchained this year, I suspect I'll be backing a losing horse yet again.

Yeah, I think that Silver Lining Playbook will sweep it.

Bold prediction. I haven't heard it talked about as a strong contender, but holy crap, it got nominated in all the "major" categories. Best picture, best director, best screenplay (in its case, adapted), and all four acting categories. Plus best editing for good measure.

I hope that jingoistic piece of crap Zero Dark Thirty gets nothing.

It's been racking up awards at a lot of the smaller awards shows, but now that they've announced Senate hearings to investigate who the CIA source was for the movie and what they were told about the torture of KSM, their might be some backlash that hurts its chances.

Just realized this year's Oscar ceremony is going up against The Walking Dead. I wonder if this will technically hurt either show in the ratings w/ the DVR/TiVo factor? I always DL Walking Dead; so Monday's technically my Walking Dead night anyway.

Haha, I actually posted about this in our The Walking Dead thread (which one? :drumroll:), and you've posted there since that post, so you evidently breezed right past it.


So, I don't know if people on this board knew this, but I just read this article that says both NBC and HBO passed on The Walking Dead. Oddly, HBO was willing to pick it up if they toned down the graphic violence. The channel that has brought us The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, Deadwood, True Blood, Oz, The Wire, Rome, and fucking Game of Thrones, needed the violence toned down on The Walking Dead. NBC was willing to pick it up if they toned it down too, but that's less surprising. Anyway, I thought that was interesting.


I was Googling about whether anyone was expecting a drop in ratings for this weeks episode due to it playing during the Oscars. Evidently, they aired an episode last season during the Oscars too, and it was the 4th most watched episode of the season (after the season finale, the mid season premiere and the season premiere), and it came in second place in total viewers against the NBA All-Star game (but beat the All-Star game in the 18-49 demo). So if that's any indicator, this week's episode will not be hurt at all in the ratings by the Oscars. When I first heard that Seth MacFarlane was hosting, I was planning on checking the Oscars out this year, but I'd rather watch TWD.

I've suddenly realized that Kristen Stewart is both talented and interesting, and On the Road looks much better than I originally thought.

Aw man. It looked pretty and had that artsy appeal to it, but it wasn't a very good movie. Paranorman was a much much better film. Though I would've been rooting for Wreck-it Ralph also, Paranorman I thought was the most deserving.







Also, is there a movie that doesn't have PSH jizzing fiercely? It's like a staple of his it seems.
