Ok, soooooo the only thing we use our TV for in our house is watching Netflix and playing Mario Party. That being said, half the time I honestly have no idea what movies are out or what they are even about.
Tangent: I seriously miss previews. I don't know about you, but I love getting pumped for upcoming movies. That's about the only thing I miss about watching regular TV instead of Netflixin it up, as we do. Unless we had DVR, then I'd miss regular TV a LOT more.
Ok, and we're back. So, I basically have been pretty out of it this past year when it comes to movies
(I used to be really good. Like always-winning-at-Scene-It-good)
So when I saw the Oscar nominations, I basically didn't even know what 80% of the movies were and therefore didn't really care about the nominations. In conclusion, I decided to make my own Oscar nominations this year. Basically, this is just a list of Movie things that I think deserve awards.
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
All of the ladies, The Help
Melissa McCarthy, Bridesmaids (I didn't see Bridesmaids, but I did see this)
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
That blonde pyro kid, Super 8 (he was the glue that held this movie together)
John Lithgow, Rise of Planet of the Apes (he made me cry an embarrassing amount of tears =good acting)
Alan Rickman, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows -Part 2
Kevin Sorbo, Soul Sufer (This nomination may or may not be based on the fact that he played Hercules)
Cowboys and Aliens (cowboys fighting aliens? Can you get more original than that?)
Hugo (I've only read the book. And it's way cool, so it gets a nomination)
Leonardo DeCaprio, J. Edgar (Didn't see this either, but just give this kid an award already people. At least a cumulative one)
Kermit, The Muppet Movie
Jake Gyllenhaal, Source Code (I totally thought he was alive the whole time =good acting)
Michelle Williams, A Day with Marilyn (I never saw this, but I just love Michelle Williams. She can have an award)
Annasophia Robb, Soul Surfer (I cried. Many times. Now that's good acting)
All the Ladies, The Help
Dennis Dugan, Jack and Jill (if you pretend that the director meant for it to be bad, then they did a pretty fine job, no?)
Kevin Macdonald, Life in a Day
J. J. Abrams, Super 8
Martin Scorsese, George Harrison: Living in the Material World
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2
Toy Story 3 (I just want them to have more awards. Who's them? Buzz and Woody?)
Super 8 (we ordered a super 8 camera from Craigslist during the credits. Now that's saying something)
3 Ninjas (Let's just pretend it was re-released in theaters)
The Muppet Movie (confession: I still haven't seen this, but I want to so bad that I'll nominate it)
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (ok, this isn't even out yet ...but how cool does it sound????)
Who do you think should win???
