Audience Participation. If you're reading this blog, you know the Oscar nominations are one week away.
Right now, without mulling it now, POST two names.
1. the person you would be most thrilled to see nominated
2. the person you would be most annoyed to see nominated.
Do it! Fill up those comments with names. Stop lurking. Two names. No need to say anything else.

I can't say I'd be "thrilled" for Jake since
a) his nom is likely anyway, and
b) it's kind of a fraudulent nom

...though I am still rooting for him.

THRILLED: Joan Allen (not just cause she's great, but also because it'd display some original thinking)
ANNOYED: (well I've avoided her film, but for the trailer alone) Ziyi Zhang (not just cause she looks bad, but cause it would display sheeplike group-think)

David Cronenberg

whoever it is who would be named if CHICKEN LITTLE got nomianted for best animated film.

Glenn Dunks said...

I must say that I would indeed die of, er, thrillness if Wong Kar-Wai got nominated or Mysterious Skin got ANYTHING. I know it is nigh on impossible for the latter, but 'tev.

Anonymous said...

1) Q'Orianka Kilcher - she was mesmerizing
2) Freaking Paul Haggis. Why has Crash turned into such a big deal? Sure, it's moving, but it's far from Academy Award-worthy craftsmanship. This position is tied with anything involving Cinderella Man.
