25 Films That Are Shockingly Able to Call Themselves "Oscar Nominated"

The big laugh line from this morning’s Oscar nominations was that Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa had been nominated for an Oscar in the Best Makeup category, which actually isn’t that surprising. They did a bang-up job with Johnny Knoxville in that movie, but now, of course, Knoxville will be able to say that he made an Oscar nominated film. But then, it’s not that unusual for bad movies to get Oscar nominations in some category, because even movies ranging from not-good to terrible to “Courtney’s secret favorite” (see Mannequin) get to have their silver linings. It’s like a metaphor for life, kids. There’s good in everyone*.

*Except Click, but even that got nominated, so what do I know?

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
