Now that I've seen Blue Valentine, I am obsessed with Ryan Gosling and can't figure out why he didn't get nominated for an Oscar today. What the hell, people? I still don't dig the idea of nominating 10 movies for Best Picture. Beyond just a blatant ploy to get more people who have a stake in the movies to watch or care about the Oscars, it seems like one of those "every kid should have a chance to be the lead in the school play" kinda things. Just keep it to five, hurt some feelings, and cause some debate is what I say.
Nobody asked me, is the thing. They never do. By the way, I am really excited for Mark Ruffalo. He's such a great actor and was fantastic in The Kids Are All Right. And when people ask me who people say I look like I always say him. I met him at a thing this summer and his wife apparently always tells him the same thing about me. Funny. He's handsome -- I'll take it!
So tonight is the finale of The Fashion Show featuring three amazing fashion shows and guest judge Mary J. Blige. Book it!!! I love Mary J. It was a coup for her to do the show, and we're still excited about it.
I was traveling and then shooting yesterday, so I missed Oprah! (After all that lead-up...) I heard about her secret, and that it was super-emo and impossible not to uncontrollably wail whilst watching itunfold. So I look forward to that assault on my tear ducts. I like a tear-duct assault. Got no problem with a nice wail every once in a while.
It's snowing in New York, and I'm not there. I get back in town Saturday.
ITA about 10 films being too many nominations....I think if they started nominating that many actors for the award, they wouldn't really be able to say "It's such an honor just to be nominated"...
Andy! I couldn't agree more about Ryan Gosling??? It makes no sense. Especially since James Franco was nominated for "27 Days"? Not an Oscar winning performance in my opinion! But that's just me.
Anyway, I also agree that you do look like Mark Ruffalo and he was sexy as hell in "The Kids are Alright." So Mazel to the both of you...and your sexiness.
Agree completely on the ten movies being nominated. It is the stupidest move they've made yet. Considering some of the history of the Academy, that is saying something!
Ryan deserved a huge nod and I don't know why he didn't get it. 10 movie noms is just tooooo much. I'm pulling for Annette Bening all the way.
Andy -- Thomas Kramer who is dating Kim Zolciak is crass. We in Miami know that the gays closed down his night club Hell, becuase he insulted the gays. So the club was boycotted. A club in South Beach that the gays don't feel welcome in stands no chance of lasting more than the couple of months, as it did. I am straight, love Bravo and am offended to see this slime on your station. Here is an article you should read. http://www.miaminewtimes.com/1993-01-13/news/trolling-with-tycoon-thomas/
Andy, I could not agree with you more regarding Ryan Gosling!! I have watched Lars and the Real Girl a number of times and thought he was awesome in that also!! Shame on the Academy for ignoring the nod for Blue Valentine....
Totally concur w/your spot on analogy re. 10 best pic noms - a little too every kid makes the team & gets trophy at the end of the season. But you have to admit savvy, for ex. Inception & poss. this gets Leo to show up... Never thought of it, but there is a likeness btwn you & Mark Ruffalo, plus you both seem charming and the good-humored sorts. You should try to get him & his wife on WWHL to break down a RH episode, that would be good. I like when you have random people on - Seinfeld being the best, but I really enjoyed Jackay & Regina King too.
Also, what about 9 by Design? Is it coming back? I'm a big fan. I tried to give Tabatha a shot b/c dead time of yr. & more time for TV - hate to say that, I really should p/u a book - but it bores me. Luckily, Top Chef and BH reunion are airing.
Charles its 27 hours not 27 days LOL and James Franco gave an oscar worthy turn in it as he almost always does that being said i do Think Ryan was robbed he so deserved to be nominated as well as win it Blue Valentine was incredible and he is the center of that film Company Men is also another great film giving Ben Affleck another channce to prove he is a first rate actor
