The 2010 Oscar Nominations

February 2, 2010 / Posted by:

The Oscar nominations were announced this morning, and this year there are 10 picks for Best Picture. This means that they will have to set-up folding chairs in the parking lot outside of the Kodak Theater for all the damn nominees! Chicken Cutlets still better be the premiere seat filler INSIDE the theater.

There’s really not that many surprises. Sandra Bullock and The Blind Side (FOR WHY?!!!!) both got nominated. Tilda Swinton, who was dripping in white trash glamour in Julia, did not. Neither did Julianne Moore. But everything else was pretty much business as usual. The only nomination I truly give two hard shits about is MO’NIQUE’S!!!!!!!!!! Nobody can drop an analog TV down a stairwell like she can!

Picture her doing this while watching the nominations (instead of the watching The $10,000 Pyramid) this morning:

The academy finally did right by Mo’Nique! We all know she really deserved an Oscar statue for her work in Phat Girlz, so this is the academy’s way of fixing their WRONG. Better late than never.
