If there's any truth to that, its a complete travesty and memberships should indeed be revoked.

I think that's been a "thing" for years now - there's no way all the voters actually watch all the nominated films, right? (But it's probably unusual for them not to watch the "big" ones.)

Oh I know.

They've interviewed whoever is singing the Disney song, and now Pharrell.

Hoping U2 is somewhere nearby.



‏@fakebono 4m

Lanvin apparently makes men's short pants.

Lanvin: the designer for old-timey British boys under 12.

Did not know this before, but apparently every category for the Oscars has the voters select a single winner, except Best Picture which has a 1 through X preferential ranking system.

....Finally caught up with the majority of the BP nominees today, and Frozen. I don't know how Ordinary Love could possibly win over Let It Go. Easy choice.

I've only seen 4 of the BP nominees. I usually do better than that.

How I thought it shook out:

12 Years a Slave
Gravity
The Wolf of Wall Street
American Hustle
Captain Phillips
Her

I'm kind of hoping for a Director/Picture split between Cuaron and 12 Years.

And this year's Harvey Weinstein Memorial "WTF is this movie doing here?" Award is awarded to...Harvey Weinstein, for Philomena.

I never see movies when they first come out.
