Kenny Ortega? Why not go out on a limb and pick Jed Tancharoen?

Shit, I can't tell if The Hangover is supposed to be sarcastic or not.

At least I hope the Oscars won't go the Razzie route and abbreviate Transformers ROFTL as "Trannie, too", the jackasses.

And here's hoping for The Papyrus Font!

The original, and still the best, Oscar prediction muddafukka: your host, Bill Chambers. Nicely done!

I kind of like this upgrade to 10, even though I've bitched about it for months now. But the real first for me is that I don't like a single film that's been nominated for Best Picture. Something's broken somewhere.

Hm, if I had a ballot:

ADVENTURELAND
BRIGHT STAR
IL DIVO
JULIA
THE MAID
THE MESSENGER
MY ONE AND ONLY
OBSERVE AND REPORT
STAR TREK
THE WHITE RIBBON

Adventureland over Up, The Hurt Locker, or Inglourious Basterds?
Problem's with you, dude.

Happy for Precious, though I know that that's my cross to bear. District 9 was a real headscratcher. I liked it, but I'm stunned that it's a popular film. Incredibly ugly film and not something that you go to because you want to have a good time.

Accurately been called the anti-Avatar in many respects.
