and the nominees are...

...as usual, a little perplexing. Every single year, no matter how often I see movies (each weekend for twelve months straight?), it ends up that I've seen exactly TWO of the five nominated for Best Picture. I never get it right. I try try try to avoid cramming viewings into the four weeks between nominations and the awards show, but no. The Academy always wants to prove I am a moviegoing moron.

I will go on at length later (shocked?), but for now let me express my displeasure at the omission of these actors in leading & supporting roles: Russell Crowe (3:10 to Yuma), Ryan Gosling (Lars and the Real Girl), James McAvoy (Atonement). And not just because they're cute, geez. How shallow do you think I am?
