#oscarwatch2011 BEST ACTOR

Colin Firth is going to get it. Why? It’s simply a matter of math. Jeff Bridges in True Grit was a joy, but admit it: you really just wanted to be watching The Big Lebowski the entire time. And maybe it’s just my deep-seated loathing for all things Facebook, but Jesse Eisenberg is a wiener – Mark Zuckerberg could have been played by my roommate’s mouldy hot dogs that have been sitting in the meat drawer for five months and they still would have been nominated. As for James Franco, he’s gone to crazy-town and nobody wants to deal with that acceptance speech. Colin’s only competition is Javier Bardem, and while I’m sure he deserves it*, he’s not going to get it. Because Colin is. BAM.

* Haven’t seen Biutiful yet, but I’m excited for it.

  1. I feel out of the loop; when/how did James Franco go to crazy-town? I feel the need to know.

  2. http://nymag.com/movies/profiles/67284/ –> ’nuff said.

  3. “Take, for instance, graduate school. As soon as Franco finished at UCLA, he moved to New York and enrolled in four of them: NYU for filmmaking, Columbia for fiction writing, Brooklyn College for fiction writing, and—just for good measure—a low-residency poetry program at Warren Wilson College in North Carolina. This fall, at 32, before he’s even done with all of these, he’ll be starting at Yale, for a Ph.D. in English, and also at the Rhode Island School of Design. After which, obviously, he will become president of the United Nations, train a flock of African gray parrots to perform free colonoscopies in the developing world, and launch himself into space in order to explain the human heart to aliens living at the pulsing core of interstellar quasars.”

    What part of this is crazy-town?

  4. An actor in university? That is crazy town.

    Honestly, I don’t think he’s crazy. I had just heard some rumours to that effect and it worked nicely with the parallel structure. Also, “crazy-town nonsense” is a wicked reference to the Fighter. It’s a great moment. You should watch the Fighter!
