My {Obviously} Correct Oscar Picks

Okay, can I just start by saying... What?! I just saw the Oscar nominations and I'm supremely bummed. I feel like a lot of my favorite movies didn't get the nominations they deserved and I could barely even pick my favorites from the nominees. I definitely think more than a few movies were robbed this year, for sure. I know, I know that's such a typical blogger thing to say, but it's really true this year. Granted, I haven't even seen The Artist, but all the hoopla surrounding it makes me want to see it even less. I just don't think I could get into a silent movie. Silence drives me nuts in real life and in a movie I feel like it would be even worse. I'd probably stand up halfway through the movie and scream.

What about 50/50, Young Adult, and Our Idiot Brother? Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Charlize Theron, and Paul Rudd all deserve some sort of recognition for their performances. All three movies were amazing and didn't even get one nom. Serious suckage. And even though Christopher Plummer is representing for Beginners, I really think the film deserved a Best Picture nod. And what about Ryan Gosling?! He was great in both Drive and Crazy Stupid Love. His hotness needs to be recognized. Oh, and don't even get me started on the fact that Like Crazy wasn't nominated for anything! The movie was one of the most poetic and heartbreaking I've ever seen. Anton Yelchin deserves something for making me cry that hard. At least a punch in the face, just like all of my exes. (JK!... Not really.) And even though I'm stoked about the nominations Bridesmaids did receive, I wish it would have been nominated for Best Picture. What does a girl have to do to get a comedy in that category? Who do I have to sleep with?

I think I should be in charge of the nominations next year. It will be all Diablo Cody, Paul Rudd & Judd Apatow movies. Yes, please. What do you think about the nominations? Anything you're pissed got left off the list? Who are you rooting for?
