And the Oscar Goes to........Jonah Hill!?!? Melissa McCarthy!?!?

http://news.moviefone.com/2012/01/23/oscar-nominations-2012_n_1224812.html?1327412698&icid=maing-grid7%7Cmain5%7Cdl2%7Csec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D129746

Wow. What a weak year. Jonah Hill's EXTREMELY reserved performance as a computer nerd gets a best supporting nod, as does Melissa McCarthy pooping in a sink in Bridesmaids. Wow. Woody Harrelson's nomination now doesn't seem so unusual.

Best original song -- 2 songs.

best animated feature -- Kung Fu Panda 2?????? Really????? Wow. Neither my 12 year old (at the time now 13) nor I enjoyed that film.

By the way, since it is mentioned here -- I am not sure that I have ever seen a movie more overrated than "Moneyball." Was it an interesting sports-related film with some not-so-subtle life messages? Sure. Was Pitt particularly good in it? No. Was Jonah Hill? No. Did we really need the 133 minute run time? No.

So, a movie that was a 7 out of 10 for me (only getting 7.8 out of 10 on imdb) is Oscar-nominated and has actors in the major categories??? Wow. Again, evidence of how bad the movies have been this year.

Jonah Hill- from Oscar nominee to
"21 Jump Street"!! Gosh, what happened with that Babysitter movie? Gone after a week? HBO, Showtime and AMC produces better product than the Hollywood Film Industry.
