WHERE THE FUCK IS MILA'S NOMINATION
I'M NOT SEEING IT ANYWHERE AND THIS IS MAKING ME ANGRY

are James Franco and Anne Hathaway (aka the new Catwoman, I don't know how to feel about that, Christie let me see you in a leather outfit some time then we'll talk) going to suck as hosts? is it going to make you feel as awkward as watching Ricky Gervais? because that was like a car skidding off the side of the highway and you are like "oh stop car please!" but then BOOM

so let's just do this:

major categories

BEST PICTURES
  • The Fighter
  • Inception
  • The Kids Are All Right
  • The King's Speech
  • 127 Hours
  • The Social Network
  • Toy Story 3
  • True Grit
  • Winter's Bone
  • The Social Network

what will probably win: The Social Network because Facebook obviously owns the world. but I could see the King's Speech or Inception making a go for it. props to Toy Story 3 and what is Winter Bone? I'm glad neither Kathie Lee Gifford or Hoda Kotb know either. I feel comforted.

BEST ACTRESSES
  • Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right
  • Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
  • Jennifer Lawrence, Winter's Bone
  • Natalie Portman, Black Swan
  • Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine

what will probably win: NATALIE PORTMAN. SHE DESERVES IT. but Annette could be a BLACK SWAN/HORSE. um, Michelle Williams was in a NC-17 rated film? lol Nicole Kidman.

BEST ACTORS

  • Javier Bardem, Biutiful
  • Jeff Bridges, True Grit
  • Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
  • Colin Firth, The King's Speech
  • James Franco, 127 Hours

what will probably win: Colin Firth! his Golden Globes speech was so sweet I don't care if I even end up hating that movie I hope he wins! HE'S ALWAYS MY MR. DARCY
but I have to say, Jeff Bridges was amazing in True Grit.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESSES

  • Amy Adams, The Fighter
  • Helena Bonham Carter, The King's Speech
  • Melissa Leo, The Fighter
  • Hailee Steinfeld, True Grit
  • Jacki Weaver, Animal Kingdom

what will probably win: WHERE IS MILA? I think this comes down to Helena or Hailee, who is going places, my god that girl can act. Kristen Stewart, please call her and get some acting lessons you need them. Amy Adams might have a good shot, as Melissa Leo. AND WHAT IS ANIMAL KINGDOM ISN'T THAT A TV SHOW WITH "MUTUAL OF OMAHA"

BEST SUPPORTING ACTORS

  • Christian Bale, The Fighter
  • John Hawkes, Winter's Bone
  • Jeremy Renner, The Town
  • Mark Ruffalo, The Kids Are All Right
  • Geoffrey Rush, The King's Speech

what will probably win: Christian Bale or Geoffrey Rush. would not rule out Mark Ruffalo, weirdly.

Mark Ruffalo. huh. wtf?

DIRECTING
  • Black Swan, Darren Aronofsky
  • The Fighter, David. O. Russell
  • The King's Speech, Tom Hooper
  • The Social Network, David Fincher
  • True Grit, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen

what will probably win: I HAVE NO CLUE. I am pulling for Darren though!

LIST HERE

I'm still pissed about Mila and Winona, but I suppose time heals most wounds. I THINK WE SHOULD DO A POOL OR I THINK MY OTHER CONTRIBUTORS SHOULD ALSO WAX ON THIS SUBJECT, AND DISCUSS THINGS SUCH AS WHERE IS ECLIPSE IN THE NOMINATIONS?

we have until the end of February. get on it, Helena!

question: will Anne and James suck? I DON'T KNOW :(

  2. haha Inception! I am surprised it wasn't nominated more. I think the King's Speech is going to be the heavyhitter hurr.

  3. I seriously think the MPAA is afraid of what Mark Zuckerberg could do to them in their sleep (INCEPTION-STYLE) if they don't vote for The Social Network.

    you know, seriously though, I just watched The Social Network for the second time and I was blown away, yet again, by how cerebral it is. And the fact that ONE GUY wrote the screenplay blows my mind. I'd need at least five people to help make me sound smart.

    p.s. HOW THE HELL WAS BLACK SWAN NOT NOMINATED FOR BEST PICTURE? oyyy.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
