I KNEW IT!!
I never follow any awards, noms or winners. I've been suddenly slurping up movies like air last few months and rabidly loving a few performances I thought r shoo-in, so I am cheering for Oldman and Fassbender most earnestly. And as always, when I care, they will just F with me. I'm happy Oldman gets a nom, but I'll trade his spot for Fassbender, yes, that's how tragic I'm a lost cause. I honestly am not that impressed with Clooney in Descendents, nor Brad in Moneyball (I don't think I'll rem these 2 movies in another month), let alone in the same chatter as Fassbender/Shame. I am even more impressed with Albert Brooks+Gosling in Drive compared to those 2 noms. I dunno, I'll out myself as the only member of Team BradClooneyROverratedMeh, I've only loved them in Burn after Reading. I will go see The Artist this wkend, for my sanity, please be everything as mindblowingly amazing as I'm expecting.
Fassy, my lurve, don't cry! I bet the Oscar derps can't handle ALL of your Glory and r in collective penis/hotness/talent envy. And too aware it's humanly impossible not jumping u, showering u harassing kisses and hugs come Oscar night. I'll paint myself gold and imitate the stillness of statue as best I can when you cuddle me in your bed instead.
Honestly I feel so bad for the guy, he's at the peak of his game, talk of the world, awesome jawdropping fearless job, maybe the role of his career, and he's royally snubbed. I dun know enough of these awards to draw a comparison of how screwed up I feel of this injustice, I can only jump to denying Brando for StreetCar or DeNiro for Taxi Driver because the fangirl rush that's overcoming me is so alike when I experienced my initial falling. I fully expect him (and Oldman) not winning, but not even the recognition of a nod?!?! If you can have 9 or 19 noms for best pic (Did the Oscar peeps really sit through the whole of WarHorse!?!), why can't we have 7 or 17 for other categories?!!!! WHY!?!?!?!?
The only bright side is I can skip the telecast and spend those hours much better watching more Fassy/Gosling hotness.
