Aghhh! So excited! So pumped! Soooo getting a t-shirt that says ‘F-ck Yeah Quvenzhané Wallis!‘ This morning Emma Stone and Seth MacFarlane announced the nominations for the 2013 Academy Awards and I’m quite pleased by what I’m seeing… although, I’m also HUGELY disappointed by one glaring snub. But still, it’s gonna be a good show. Lincoln, Argo, Django, Zero Dark Thirty, and Silver Linings Playbook are all getting lots of love (Lincoln leads the way with 12 nominations).

I don’t know where THE F— the Oscar nomination is for Marion Cotillard and/or Rust and Bone, but whatever. I’ll get past that in my own time/no I WON’T.
I’m craaaaaaaAAAAAZZZZZYYYYY excited to see Quvenzhané Wallis become the YOUNGEST PERSON EVER (at 9 years old) to get nominated for an Oscar. I mean, yeeessss! I loved her in Beasts Of The Southern Wild (so did Trent) and her props sorta, kinda consoles me over the snub of my my absolute favorite film of the year. Rust and Bone. Rust and Bone. Rust and Bone. Go see it. F— the Academy. LMAO.
Oh, and in that same category (Supporting Actress), we also have the oldest actor ever nominated in that category, Emmanuelle Riva, 85. I have to see Amour; I’ve only heard good things about this film.
Having gotten my entire life changed last night, when I saw Django Unchained (Trent’s favorite movie of the year), I was a little surprised to see that Quentin wasn’t nominated in the Best Director category, but Django got lots of lurve elsewhere, so I’m okay with that. I still haven’t seen soooo many of these films so it’s difficult to comment, but I’m looking forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts!
Who got snubbed? Any of these films totally overrated?
Okay. I’m just gonna say it. DID NOT LIKE ZERO DARK THIRTY. LOOOOVE Jessica Chastain! Haaaaated her performance in this film! There. I said it. Judge me if you will! I think it was a very interesting story that was delivered in a pretty wack way. There were def some good scenes, but as a whole film, I think it was weak. Just my opinion!
Did I say Django changed my life? Okay. Django. Yeah.0
