And the other 40% of the time, I use the “internet” to pull together a bag of wonderful randomness that is this post.
- Black Swan Best Actress Winner Natalie Portman has (finally!) given birth to a baby boy! It seems like she’s been preggo forever, huh? The bundle of joy’s name hasn’t been revealed yet, but I’m hopeful that it’s not too crazy!
- Am I the only person who thought these were the same movies? Despite the fact that no one is ever going to confuse Seth Rogen for Ryan Reynolds, I just can’t wrap my mind around the fact that these are different things. My B.
- In a “blinked and you missed it,” the Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences issued a statement last night that will certainly have an impact on how many Best Picture Oscar nominees we’ll see coming out of 2011. The way that nominating ballots are counted is going to shift, which will potentially give us a different number of Best Picture nominees each year. According to EW, the board said in a statement that had these changes “been in place over the past decade there would have been years when there were five, six, seven, eight, and nine nominees.” There’s been a lot of negative feedback around the expansion to 10 nominees the past 2 years, with the loudest criticism directed towards movies that maybe didn’t deserve a nomination, but got one to round out the field. It’ll be interesting to see what happens with these new rules in place!
Random enough for you? Oh, and I hope you know what movie inspired this post! (You totally do, right?)
