Report: Why Springsteen got robbed for “The Wrestler” in the Oscars? Here’s why…

In order for a song from a film be eligible for a nomination for “Best Song” category, a total of 8.25 up to 10 votes by the Academy branch must be made by the voters. Sadily, Bruce’s song only got a total of 8 votes of everyone voting. Since Bruce’s song ,”The Wrestler”, didn’t make 8.25 to 10 votes, it’s the only reason it didn’t get in.

That is also the reason the “Original Song” category only nominated three songs, because those three songs were the only ones that got between 8.25 to 10 votes.

More on it here:


Like the article said, Bruce is already an Oscar winner for winning an Oscar for “Streets of Philadelphia”, and he already won a Golden Globe for “The Wrestler”, he would think that’s good enough for him.

Fuck the Oscars, Bruce. Your music career is way more important than a golden statue. The Superbowl performance is all he needs to complete his legendary career.


Thought: Why were “The Dark Knight”, Springsteen, Cyrus, and Eastwood snubbed from the Oscars?

Many shocking Oscar snubs that I’m sure dissapointed many movie fans. “The Dark Knight” was snubbed from the Best Picture Win, they also didn’t get anything for Best Director, Actor/actress, Screenplay, etc.

Clint Eastwood didn’t even get nominated for “Best Actor” in “Gran Torino” or “Best Director” for “Changeling/Gran Torino”. No Clint at the Oscars at all this year? WOW!!!!! SHOCKING!!!! Eastwood usually is at the Oscars every year. I’m sure he’ll still be there in person to enjoy the show though and maybe even present an award although he won’t be winning anything.

Springsteen didn’t even get nominated for his song “The Wrestler”, so I feel bad for the boss of Rock n’ Roll. Oh well, I’m sure he won’t care. I’m sure he’ll think his Golden Globe win, The Superbowl Halftime performance, him performing for Barack Obama at the Inaugural Celebration “We Are One”, and his new album with “Workin’ On a Dream” is good enough for him. I’m sure Springsteen feels bad about the Oscar snub, but hey, life goes on. He’s got better opportunities coming up ahead of him like the Superbowl performance.

The thing with the Academy, that there is so many great films that came out in the year 2008 that they can’t nominate everything, so that’s why the Academy members have to vote on the best work, to see which one is worthy enough. They don’t care about the mainstream popularity of the film or not, they’ll nominate films for the quality of the work. Not caring what the public thinks. It all depends on the voting with the members of the Academy, that’s how they do it with the voting ballots. It’s all about their opinion, they don’t care about the public’s opinion of what we think should be nominated.

As for Eastwood getting snubbed, there is always next time for him to try to star in a movie he directs where he can get Oscar nominated for Best Actor again, there’s always another time for him. He’s won two Best Directors in the past, so hopefully Eastwood will at least win one Best Actor award before he gets too old and his time is out if you know what I mean.

Tom Cruise was also snubbed a nomination for his role as Les Grossman for “Tropic Thunder” so that’s another shocker. As for Miley Cyrus, who cares, I’m sick of Miley.

As for the Academy ignoring the “Dark Knight”, it was a nice try for a comic book superhero movie to get nominated for the first time, it was that close. One day there will be a superhero movie that will land in the Oscars, maybe not the “Dark Knight” but maybe another superhero flick in the future. “The Dark Knight” did get an impressive 8 bids for the Best Pic nomination, so the film came this close. Unfortunately, the other films nominated were more popular than “The Dark Knight”.

REMINDER: Oscar nominations to be revealed this Thursday!!!

Well, this is it, the 81st Oscar nominations is about to be revealed, this coming Thursday.

When Thursday comes, check out the link below, this is the link where the nominations will be revealed…


I think the nominations for “Best Picture” is actually pretty unpredictable. So many great movies to choose from. I think the “Dark Knight” will make “Best Picture” nomination, no matter what happens. Just because “Dark Knight” didn’t make “Best Picture” nomination for the Golden Globes, doesn’t mean it has no chance at the Oscars either.

I think the Oscars goal this year is that they want a mainstream and popular film to get a nomination this year. The Oscars have been nominating too many films that no one has even heard about over the years.

I’m still rooting for “The Dark Knight” and “Wall-E'” getting nominated for “Best Picture”. The Academy made it clear before that they want to give an animated film a nomination this year, so the Oscar nominations will be a little different than the Golden Globes.

I don’t think “Slumdog Millionaire” will sweep the Oscars, “The Dark Knight” will. I can’t wait for Thursday because I’m dying to see the nominations myself!!!
