2013 Oscar Nominations are Here
I thought they did these on a Tuesday? Oh well. The 2013 Oscar nominations are out and boy are they not full of surprises. Here’s a list of the categories people give a sh*t about (sorry, Costume Design).
- Amour – The proverbial French entry about love and death.
- Argo – Like all of Ben Affleck’s directing efforts, just shy of awesome.
- Beasts of the Southern Wild - Poor people are really rich. I hated this movie.
- Django Unchained – Tarantino’s best film since Pulp Fiction.
- Les Miserables – A musical? No thanks.
- Life of Pi – The heartwarming story of baked goods.
- Lincoln – Steven Spielberg blah blah blah… Daniel Day-Lewis blah blah blah… It will win, unfortunately.
- Silver Linings Playbook – Haven’t seen it yet, but it’s about Philadelphia Eagles fans, so it must end tragically.
- Zero Dark Thirty – Bin Laden gets got and it’s glorious.
- Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln) – Best actor on the planet.
- Denzel Washington (Flight) – C’mon Academy!
- Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables) – He sings and broods and kills bad guys with razor sharp hand blades.
- Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) – The guy from The Hangover?
- Joaquin Phoenix (The Master) – He whispers and mumbles a lot.
- Naomi Watts (The Impossible) – Won’t win, but she’s super terrific.

- Emmanuelle Riva (Amour) – Oscar loves dying.
- Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) – Cute kid.
Best Supporting Actor
- Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) – Not as amazing as Inglourious Basterds, but highly entertaining.
- Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Master) – Is great in everything he does,
- Robert De Niro (Silver Linings Playbook) – No Meryl Streep in 2012, so there’s this.

- Tommy Lee Jones (Lincoln) – He sleeps with his black housekeeper.

- Amy Adams (The Master) – She can do wrong in my book.
- David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) – Once made a movie about masturbation and incest.
- Ang Lee (Life of Pi) – No gay cowboys, so he won’t win.
- Steven Spielberg (Lincoln) – Lock.
- Michael Haneke (Amour) – Watch the original Funny Games. It will leave you speechless.
