OSKARZ 2011


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.

  4. seriously! BLACK SWAN DESERVES OSCAR NOM FOR BEST PIC

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
