it’s the 2012 Academy Award nominees

January 24, 2012 | celebrity | editor | 0 Comments

The 84th Academy Award nominees were announced early this morning in LA, with Martin Scorsese’s ‘Hugo’ headlining things with 11 nominations, followed by silent movie ‘The Artist’ getting 10. Other things that jump out are ‘Drive’ getting shut out, Michael Shannon not getting a nomination for ‘Take Shelter’, the Dean of Greendale Community College nominated as a writer for best adapted screenplay, and two nominations for ‘Bridesmaids’ (supporting actress and screenplay).

Overall this list is pretty shitty. It’s boring, AND the show has Billy Crystal for a host. Which means I will have shot a flaming arrow into my TV by about the 20 minute mark.
