Thought: Media frenzy over Angelina Jolie’s leg…

I don’t get the media frenzy over Angelina Jolie’s leg, her right leg pose on the red carpet, which the internet have been all over since the day of the Oscars. It’s still being talked about.

I’ve been a die hard fan of Angie ever since her “Hackers” and “Cyborg 2” days, back when she was just a young girl. I can tell you that this wasn’t the first time she’s done this. In fact, she’s done sexual things over the years that were even crazier than the leg pose.

The leg pose at the Oscars, I believe, was just a hint that she still has the bad girl side of her. She used to be a bad girl and crazy in her younger years. Google search her photos and you would see what I mean.

Women do this stuff all the time, when they wear dresses like that, so what’s the big deal? The press would do anything just to get the internet going.


Report: Sacha Baron Cohen vs. The Academy, was this a fake publicity stunt?

While reports say that the Academy just lifted the ban on Sacha Baron Cohen at the Oscars, I believe this back and forth feud was a fake. Just a simple way to help promote the movie, “The Dictator”.

Deadline, reports.

Will Sacha present an award in this character too? We’ll have to wait and see…


Oscar Predictions for this Sunday…

Oscar predictions for this Sunday, I haven’t seen most of the movies this year but these are just my guesses that will win:

Best Picture – “The Descendants” or “Hugo”
Actor in a Leading Role – George Clooney for “the Descendants”
Actress in a Leading Role – Michelle Williams for “My Week With Marilyn” or Rooney Mara for “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”
Actor in a Supporting Role – Nick Nolte for “Warrior”
Actress in a Supporting Role – Octavia Spencer for “The Help”
Animated Feature Film – “Rango”
Directing: Alexander Payne for “The Descendants”
Writing (Adaptive Screenplay): “Moneyball” (because of Aaron Sorkin)
Writing (Original Screenplay): “Midnight in Paris” by Woody Allen

I remember, I once said Nick Nolte was snubbed from the Oscars, but I looked at the Nominations list again and saw him on there. I must of missed it, someone should have told me!

I hate most award shows, but the Oscars I like to watch. It’s pretty much the only award show I enjoy more than the others. Looking forward to the Oscars, Sunday night. I’ll be DVR’ing the “Walking Dead” while watching it.


Report: Okay, Sacha Baron Cohen not banned from the Oscars, but might not be allowed to wear, “The Dictator” costume…

The Academy were quick to respond to reports and they denied banning Sacha Baron Cohen. They’re just waiting to see what he’s planning to do. He’s planning to show up in character in, “The Dictator” (pictured above), but the Academy is worried that he might do something crazy and offensive.

The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Oh please, the Academy should not be taking him so seriously. The guy’s a comedian and a pretty funny one, I must say. I am looking forward to “The Dictator” ’cause it looks like a funny ass movie. I like Sacha’s films when he’s starring in the leading role. Yes, “Borat” and “Bruno” are both good movies. Sascha is obviously politically motivated ’cause all three of these films are based on politics, in some way.

I’m looking forward to seeing what Sacha is going to do this Sunday at the Oscars. The man is unpredictable. Since they might not allow him to show up as the Dictator, what’s stopping him from showing up as Bruno or Borat? Ever think about that, eh?

I’m looking forward to the Oscars this Sunday. I’ll be DVR’ing the Walking Dead while I’m watching it. I’ll  post my Oscar predictions later tonight.


Report: Rooney Mara gets Oscar nomination for Best Actress!!!!

Wow! What a shocker! I didn’t think the Oscars would give “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” any Oscar nods, but they did end up giving Rooney Mara, a nomination for “Best Actress” for which she played, Lisbeth Salander in the film. The film also got a nod for best cinematography, editing, and sound mixing which is pretty cool! I’ve always thought Rooney’s performance in “Girl”, was Oscar worthy ’cause it was such a great performance and so intense. However, though, I don’t think Rooney is going to get the win for this category. The win for “Best Actress” will probably end up going to Michelle Williams, but it would be cool if Rooney got it ’cause she deserves it more than Michelle, in my opinion. I think the only reason Michelle is getting all the credit and recognition is because of Heath Ledger.

As for the other categories, I’m happy with the “Best Picture” selections this year. Noticing that Brad Pitt got two “Best Picture” nominations with “Moneyball”, and “The Tree of Life”. The only movies, I’ve seen out of the “Best Picture” nominations are: “The Help”, “Moneyball”, and “War Horse”, I haven’t seen the other ones. I’m hoping “The Help” will get the Best Picture win but it will probably go to “The Descendants”.

I’m predicting George Clooney will win for Best Actor for “The Descendants” as well. I haven’t seen, “The Descendants” yet, but when the film arrives on DVD, I’ll see it then.

“Actor In a Supporting Role”, I hope Jonah Hill gets the win for that one for “Moneyball” ’cause his performance was really good in that film. “Actress in a Supporting Role”, Octavia Spencer will probably get that win for “The Help”.

“Best Animated Feature”, I haven’t seen any of those films, but my guess that “Rango” would probably get the win. For “Best Director” either Martin Scorsese for “Hugo” and Alexander Payne for “The Descendants” will get the win for that one.

“Best Original Musical Score”, I’m hoping John Williams for “War Horse” will get that one. “Music Original Song”, The Muppets most definitely.

Oscars nominations…my predictions and thoughts…

Well, Oscar nominations have been finally revealed today. Here they are, here. As usual there are quite a few snubs. Michael Douglas didn’t get anything for Best Supporting Actor and Christopher Nolan didn’t get Best Director.

“Inception” was a very good movie, but to be honest with you, Christopher Nolan’s directing style to “Inception” is really nothing special. Any director can make a crazy special effects movie like that. So his Best Director is not worthy of an Oscar, in my opinion.

While I have a feeling that “The King’s Speech” will sweep everything, I’d like to see “The Social Network” or “True Grit” win Best Picture. I’d like to see “The Fighter”, “Winter’s Bone”, or “Black Swan” to win Best Picture as well, but I don’t think they will.This year’s Oscars will be unpredictable for the “Best Picture” category, but the other categories might be a little bit predictable though.

Here are my prediction winners:

BEST PICTURE – As said above, I’d like to see “The Social Network”, “True Grit”, “The Fighter” or “Black Swan” get it, but we all know “The King’s Speech” will get this one.

PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE – Colin Firth for “The King’s Speech”


PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE – Natalie Portman for “Black Swan” (Although I would love to see Jennifer Lawrence and Michelle Williams get it, I still haven’t seen “Blue Valentine yet but I really want to)

PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE – Hailiee Steinfeld for “True Grit (Though I have a feeling it will go to Melissa Leo for “The Fighter”)


ART DIRECTION – Either “Alice in Wonderland” or “Inception” will get this one.

CINEMATOGRAPHY – “Inception” will get this one, hands down.

COSTUME DESIGN – “Alice In Wonderland”

ACHIEVEMENT IN DIRECTING – Either the Coen Bros. or David Fincher will get this one.

BEST DOCUMENTARY – “Exit Through the Gift Shop” (I haven’t seen this movie yet but want to)

FILM EDITING – Either “The King’s Speech” or “The Social Network” will get this one.


MAKEUP – “The Wolfman”

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE – Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for “The Social Network”

BEST ORIGINAL SONG -“We Belong Together” by Randy Newman “Toy Story 3”

SOUND EDITING – “Inception”

VISUAL EFFECTS – “Inception”

BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY – “The Social Network” by Aaron Sorkin

BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY – “Inception” will get this one. Even if Chris won’t get Best Director, he should be happy with this award.

There are my predictions. Feel free to agree or disagree.



Report: the Oscars to give Francis Ford Coppola the Thalberg award…

The legendary Godfather trilogy director, Francis Ford Coppola, will be receiving, the Irving G. Thalberg award. Not only that he is the great director of the Godfather franchise, he also made excellent movies such as “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”, “Jack” starring Robin Williams, “The Outsiders”, “The Conversation”, “Apocalypse Now”, and more. He is also the brother of “Rocky” star, Talia Shire…and the Uncle of iconic actors, Nicolas Cage and Jason Schwartzman. Congrats Francis, well deserved!
