Was that last night?  I was too busy watching The Walking Dead and then snoozing through Comic Book Men to check out the Academy Awards.

All jokes aside, I'm sick and tired of all of these self-serving awards programs.  95% of the time the general public doesn't even know most of the films that get nominations.

I'm totally with you on this. But what does ABC have to air in its place? GCB? Another bomb of decreptitude coming our way. With Desperate Housewives going off maybe they should put in a strong bid for Sunday Night Football and Baseball.

The Road to Wrestlemani...the Oscars have finally begun. Most would agree it was a pretty weak year in film. There are a score of movies that came out last year which would probably be taking home the award this year. That is just not the case though, so let's take a look at some of the nominations or lack there of      Best Picture   “The Artist”   “The Descendants”   “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close”   …
Quick Tip by . February 28, 2012
This show seems to get more boring each year. After a fairly exciting Grammy Awards two weeks ago, this show is a real snooze. How a silent French black and white film can be the best picture and how an actor with no lines can win best actor is beyond me. The Red Carpet pre-show was a lot more interesting and even that was boring compared to the Grammys pre-show.
