Academy Awards

I am about nine months behind on movies, but anyway:
Complete list of 75th annual Academy Award nominations

I am happy that Queen Latifah got a nod. She is a pretty cool lady. Otherwise, no real surprises here. Some folks have talked about the obvious abscence of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.” It did get a screenwriting nomination but nothing else. But really, people, just because a movie makes a truck load of cash doesn’t automatically mean that it is worthy of best picture.

With the Academy Awards comes the annual Oscar ™ party. Hmmmm. I think this year’s annual bash at the neighbors’ needs a theme. I propose “Casablanca.” A great movie and a great theme to work from. Just a suggestion to Mark and Robert, our annual hosts.
