Well, except for Saved by the Bell, everybody watched that show, because that show was awesome.
But then there's this. I love it so much. So funny. It starts out weird and then gets crazy. It's genius. Plus: the wonderful Phil Hartman. Enjoy!
Who should win: Beasts of the Southern Wild (Maybe not "should", but it's who I want.)
Who will win: Lincoln (Oscar Porn)
Who should win: Benh Zeitlin (creating movies like Beasts out of nothing? That's directing)
Who will win: Senor Spielbergo (He knows what the Academy wants and he gives it to them... hard.)
Who should win: Pppppppppppppbbbbbbbbbbhhhhhhhhhhtttttttttttttttt (fart)
Who will win: Daniel Day-Lewis (ACTING!)
Naomi Watts is out. People hate her. It's true! Don't pretend like it isn't. Everyone hates Naomi Watts. She just... wants it too much, y'know? Jessica Chastain is out, her character work can too easily be dismissed in Zero Dark Thirty and besides, the Academy wants to skirt the whole stupid controversy that comes with the film. Emmanuelle Riva and Quvenzhane Wallis both have a good story, one of them being super old and the other one being super young. The Academy loves to trumpet that shit in a: "Look how good they are despite their handicaps!" kind of way (rolls eyes). Their problem is Riva doesn't have the obvious and much loved body of work behind her to put her over the top and the same reason applies to Quvenzhane Wallis, plus very few people can pronounce her name. Jennifer Lawerence on the other hand, she is widely regarded as extremely talented, she is cute with just the right amount of awkward quirkiness, and she's a box office draw. The people love her. She's a lock.
Who should win: Quvenzhane Wallis (She's just so god damn adorable)
Who will win: Jennifer Lawrence (She is also just so god damn adorable)
Tommy Lee Jones is out, most likely because he's the Lincoln Award Sweep sacrifice. It's always the Supporting Actor. It seems like the Academy is a little mad a Tarantino, snubbing him for Director and Picture, so Waltz is also probably out. Phillip Seymour Hoffman dared to play a thinly disguised Hubbard, so he's out. Rober De Niro would be a shoe-in because he's Robert De Niro and he's not appearing in one of those crappy Meet the Parents films, except for the fact that Alan Arkin went for what is one of Hollywood's mostest favoritest of all roles: The Inside Baseball role that upholds the Magic and Myth of Hollywood. He plays a charming and funny successful Movie Producer in the know who is funny and charming and successful. The Academy is going to lap that shit up with a spoon.
Who should win: Phillip Seymour Hoffman (He's just really good)
Who will win: Alan Arkin (He's also good, but he's winning for another reason.)
Who should win: Anne Hathaway (whatever)
Who will win: Anne Hathaway (why not?)
Who should win: Brave (Because it's awesome)
Who will win: Brave (Because it's Pixar)
Who should win: Moonrise Kingdom (It deserves some accolades)
Who will win: Django Unchained (Potential trouble or not, Quentin brings the people)
