Oscar Nominations (Are Dumb)


The nominations were released at 5am this morning…Pacific Time? I don’t remember. ANYWAY. Here they are, in all their expectable-but-occasionally-infuriating glory.

Best Actor:
Javier Bardem for “Biutiful”
Jeff Bridges for “True Grit”
Jesse Eisenberg for “The Social Network”
Colin Firth for “The King’s Speech”
James Franco for “127 Hours”

Javier Bardem and Jeff Bridges, I love you. But Colin Firth had better fucking win this.

Supporting Actor:
Christian Bale for “The Fighter”
John Hawkes for “Winter’s Bone”
Jeremy Renner for “The Town”
Mark Ruffalo for “The Kids Are All Right”
Geoffrey Rush for “The King’s Speech”

What the HELL ASS do you mean, Matt Damon wasn’t even nominated?! (Admittedly, there is a lot of heavy competition in this category.)

Best Actress:
Annette Bening for “The Kids Are All Right”
Nicole Kidman for “Rabbit Hole”
Jennifer Lawrence for “Winter’s Bone”
Natalie Portman for “Black Swan”
Michelle Williams for “Blue Valentine”

Supporting Actress:
Amy Adams for “The Fighter”
Helena Bonham Carter for “The King’s Speech”
Melissa Leo for “The Fighter”
Hailee Steinfeld for “True Grit”
Jacki Weaver for “Animal Kingdom”

Animated Feature Film:
How to Train Your Dragon
Toy Story 3
The Illusionist

Toy Story 3 is going to win. One wonders why they even bother with other nominations.

Art Direction:
Alice in Wonderland
Harry Potter
Inception
The King’s Speech
True Grit

Ohhhh The King’s Speech had better not win this.

Cinematography:
Black Swan
Inception
The King’s Speech
The Social Network
True Grit

I will be embarrassed for the world if The King’s Speech wins this.

Directing:
Darren Aronofsky for “Black Swan”
David O. Russell for “The Fighter”
Tom Hooper for “The King’s Speech”
David Fincher for “The Social Network”
Coen Brothers for “True Grit”

LACK OF CHRISTOPHER NOLAN NOM IS CRAPCRAPCRAP.

Original Score:
John Powell for “How to Train Your Dragon”
Hans Zimmer for “Inception”
Alexandre Desplat for “The King’s Speech”
A.R. Rahman for “127 Hours”
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for “The Social Network”

No nomination for Daft Punk?! Lame. But not surprising. (The King’s Speech had also better not win this.)

Best Picture:
Black Swan
The Fighter
Inception
The Kids Are All Right
The King’s Speech
127 Hours
The Social Network
Toy Story 3
True Grit
Winter’s Bone

Visual Effects:
Alice in Wonderland
Harry Potter
Hereafter
Inception
Iron Man II

If Inception doesn’t win this category, I will have no respect for the Oscars anymore.

Adapted Screenplay:
127 Hours
The Social Network
Toy Story 3
True Grit
Winter’s Bone

Team True Grit! (The Social Network will probably win.)

Original Screenplay:
Another Year
The Fighter
Inception
The Kids Are All Right
The King’s Speech

Team Inception! (The King’s Speech will probably win.)
