Wha, Wha, What!

Well the last and largest of Hollywood's award J.O. fest have been announced. And of course TTR disagrees with a lot of the nominees for the 77th Oscar awards. First off how can Fahrenheit 911 not even be nominated in the best doc category?! Granted SuperSize Me was a big hit and entertaining (and I haven't seen the other ones) but come on! Is the Academy so friggin' scared of Michael Moore making a scene? Well that is what he does but show some balls people!

And no nods to The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou? It at least deserves a best costume or art direction nod, if for nothing else the red hats and speedos.

Other complaints include: Does Jamie Foxx really need to be nominated in best actor and best supporting actor? Just a few short years ago he was playing a semi-retarded looking woman on In Living Color; I haven't seen Sideways yet, but I like Paul Giamatti as an actor. They forgot him with American Splendor and they're forgetting him now; Not even a best screenplay bid for Garden State? BOOOO!; No best picture for The Incredibles? It deserves so much more than to just beat Shark Tales in the best Animated Feature category.

I do however have to give the Academy kudos for nominating two Twizler pretend celebrity girlfriends in the Best Actress category. Yay Kate Winslet with multiple hair colors in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (If I ran things this would be up for best picture too)! I still love you Hilary Swank and I haven't seen Million Dollar Baby yet but Kate hasn't won before, it's about freakin' time!

But despite all our bitching (well Keeper will probably bitch when she sees this) we'll still watch the 18 hour event, hope someone does something remarkably stupid. And at the very least see some horrid displays of red carpet couture. Tune in the last Sunday in Feb to watch.

Actually, Michael Moore shot himself in the foot with this one (was that a vague Bowling for Columbine reference? You be the judge.) because he pulled Farenheit 911 from consideration for best documentary, hoping to get a best picture nomination instead.

Oops, my bad. I didn't know you couldn't be nominateed for both.
