with 2 comments

Actor In a Leading Role

  • Richard Jenkins – The Visitor (movie about Illegal Immigration – Nope)
  • Sean Penn – Milk (Loses just for deceptive title which tricked me into going to see it – Nope)
  • Frank Langella – Frost/ Nixon (about time Nixon gets some respect)
  • Brad Pitt – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (He ages backwards?  I aged watching this movie)
  • Mickey Rourke – The Wrestler (Can’t beat pro wrestling for excitement)

Winner: Frank Langella

Actor in a Supporting Role

  • Josh Brolin – Milk (Actually, just because he played Bush he gets support here)
  • Robert Downey – Tropic Thunder (Finally a war movie gets recognized)
  • Phillip Seymour Hoffman – Doubt (Papist)
  • Heath Ledger – The Dark Knight (Played the John McCain type in this liberal propaganda)
  • Michael Shannon – Revolutionary Road (He plays a guy in a mental institution.  The Academy always recognizes this)

Winner: Micahel Shannon

Actress in Leading Role

  • Anne Hathaway – Rachel Getting Married (I don’t like the pro-drug message of this film)
  • Angelina Jolie – Changeling (I don’t like the anti-police message of this film)
  • Melissa Leo – Frozen River (I don’t like the global warming message of this title)
  • Meryl Streep – Doubt (I don’t like the Papist message of this film)
  • Kate Winslet – The Reader (I hate reading almost as much as I hate Nazis)

Winner: Kate Winslet

Actress in a Supporting Role

  • Amy Adams – Doubt (Papist)
  • Penelope Cruz – Vickie Cristina Barcelona (Too foreign)

  • Marisa Tomei – The Wrestler (Loved her in My Cousin Vinnie)

Winner: Marisa Tomei

Best Song

  • Down to Earth – Wall E (I’m assuming that a liberal propoganda movie like this probably got Randy Newman)

  • O Sava – Slumdog Millionare (Doesn’t anybody talk English anymore)

Winner: Ballad of the Green Berets

Best Picture

  • The Curious Case of Benjamin Bratt  (ZZZZZZ)
  • Frost/Nixon – (Finally a movie showing how Nixon stood up to David Frost’s tough questioning)
  • Milk – (I am not seeing another movie named after a beverage again without seeing the trailer first)
  • The Reader – (Who wants to see a movie about reading?  I go to the movies so I don’t have to read)
  • Slumdog Millionare – (A pro-capitalism movie shows that anybody can pull themselves up out of the slums)

Winner: Slumdog Millionare

  1. All those movies were pretty good, even Benjamin Button. But, after watching The Wrestler again, it’s one of my favorite films of this bunch. And I hate wrestling. I hope Slumdog Millionaire gets everything, because that’s what I guessed for my Oscar pool.

  2. Well I find myself at the 5th entry in my series of websites that are amazing yet do not have the web 2.0 aesthetic. I like many other designers have fallen to the addictive properties of http://www.thatsrightnate.com which has allowed me to find such an amazing set of sites and share them here with you.
