and the nominees are…

January 22, 2009 | Photos | editor | 0 Comments

This is bullshit.  Early this morning in Beverly Hills, the Academy Award nominees (see the entire list here) were announced, and as expected "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" leads the pack with 13, including Best Picture, Best Director for David Fincher and Best Actor for Brad Pitt.  Also as expected, Heath Ledger was nominated for his work in "The Dark Knight".  Now this is where everything goes to hell, because "Knight" didn’t get a nod for Best Picture or Best Director and "Gran Torino" was shut out completely.  "Torino" and "Man On Wire" were the best movies of the year, and they're gonna be ignored.   I'm sure "Wire" will lose to some hippie nonsense about war.  "Milk" was like watching a fish tank for two hours it was so damn dull, but of course it got the nod in all the major categories.  I’d rather have watched actual milk for two hours.  Just pour it in a bowl and I'll stare at it until noon.  There's no way that could be any more dull.
