The Oscars happened...

...And there were no breadsticks to be found (because I ate em all...HARHAR, one less smartass comment).

Here's a quick rundown of some of the big Academy Award winners:

Best Supporting Actor: Javier Bardem, No Country For Old Men
Best Supporting Actress: Tilda Swinton, Michael Clayton
Best Actress: Marion Cotillard, La Vie En Rose
Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis, There Will Be Blood
Best Director: Joel and Ethan Coen, No Country For Old Men
Best Picture: No Country For Old Men

I've never heard of Marion Coltillard or La Vie En Rose but congratulations anyways. She looked kinda strange tonight, but the magic of Google Images led me to IMDB and brought my attention to some of her better moments.

And by "better moments," I of course am referring to her stellar acting career...

Sometime this week I will be sure to catch the great Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will Be Blood. This fool always has the most intense performances; he is pretty much the Kevin Garnett of acting.

And of course, I can't miss No Country For Old Men. Ever since he showed up in The Fugitive, every Tommy Lee Jones (aka Agent K) movie has been stellar...except maybe Space Cowboys.

My favorite comedy of the year (yes, I liked it better than Juno, even though writer Diablo Cody probably deserved her Best Original Screenplay award) was multiple Razzie winner (including Worst Picture), Norbit. Unfortunately it lost out in its nomination for Best Makeup to the Marion Cotillard movie but deep in my heart I hope that Eddie Murphy will get his Oscar someday. Let us all hope and pray for Coming to America 2. I will even settle for Nutty Professor 3. Make it happen Eddie.


  1. i wasnt really familiar with the major winners either, although Daniel Day-Lewis was pretty badass in Gangs of New York. La Vie En Rose??

  2. Hell yeah Diablo Cody deserved the writing for original screenplay award. And props to No Country For Old Men for everything they won, awesome movie, especially Javier Bardem for supporting actor.

    Art Direction for Sweeney Todd well deserved, and then one of the most important awards to me, the best film score award going to Atonement, music by Dario Marianelli. Holy shit what an incredible score, watch the movie and check it out.

  3. yeah i didn't mention cause i thought you might do a post for it. and daniel day-lewis is a badass
