Was Ejiofor ineligible or something? Because, yikes.

"That'll Do" from Babe: Pig in the City is one of my favourite movie songs. Just lovely.

The people who voted for Whitaker here will be the loudest critics of the Academy when they deny Ejiofor at the Oscars.

This has been an interesting week for me with Olivia Wilde. I just saw her in Drinking Buddies and thought she was awesome in what I dreaded would be a flat dream girl role (the movie itself does a lot to debunk this as well). Her interview here is also super and smart. What is perhaps even more interesting is that when I did a search of Wilde just now, it wasn't this article, or references to it, that popped up, but rather analyses of her baby bump fashion choices. How perfect.
