"While it doesn't seem groundbreaking, I know I will watch it eventually because of the four legends in the cast." - Rebecca

"Adored both Bergen and Keaton (and Garcia!), liked Fonda and unfortunately, thought Steenburgen kind of drew the short straw here. Overall, had a ball!" - Andrew

Throwing the Link Bones

Gurus of Gold the final predictions. It's fascinating to see where the differences of opinion lie on this handy chart of top pundits
Telegraph Tim Robey picks the five best Oscar years ever from 1939 forward. Good choices.
Deadspin's "Hater's Guide to the Oscars" is insanely funny. Get on over there. Finally a piece making fun of the Oscars that is not dumb (Honestly I've had it with all the takedowns of Oscar we get every year. Even the 140 character type of takedowns. They're all so stupid and whiny ("why can't my favorites be nominated. waaaaaa") and clueless about how it all actually works and what movies, you know, exist in the world. 

Finally, you must read MTV Styles "United Colors of Lupita"... I know Oscar prediction is an inexact science, roughly akin to tossing small animal bones on the ground and pontificating but this is why I think Lupita is going to win.


Who needs all the precursors to line up when you can do this?

Let's hope there's a statue of gold at the end of that rainbow.

That Deadspin article was hysterical, but I do agree with him on Jared Leto. I don't know why he's winning that award. If only Fassbender had campaigned...

The Hater's Guide is brilliant! I love the way he hates Nebraska.

I've felt so alone in hating Nebraska all winter, it's so great to find others who feel the same.

I agree with most of that Deadspin article, though I feel that "Nebraska" is leaps and bounds beyond the mundane bore that is "The Descendants." I truly need to know when the convention was held to coronate, of all people, Jared Leto as THE supporting actor of 2013. At least I get why someone would want to vote for the other presumed winners.
