Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Maddy

    No one's mentioned the most laughable thing of all: that Jennifer Love Hewitt was nominated in the same category as Judi freaking Dench. And looked legitimately crushed when she didn't win.

  • Stephen Wallis

    All are pretty correct except for Richard Curtis and Love, Actually which anyone in the screenwriting world will tell you was more than a worthy nomination.

  • Nicole

    LOL. You should get your facts straight, if you're going to post a ridiculous list. First, learn to spell names right. And second, get what they were nominated for correct. I.E. Lea MICHELE was nominated both years as BEST Actress (never supporting) and it was 2010 and 2011. It took me five seconds to figure that out too. And btw, her nomination the first year was completely deserved.

    It's also laughable that someone thinks Naya, a person who did barely anything but stand in the background the first season, should have been nominated over her that year. Rolling my eyes so hard.

    Also, a lot of other ridiculous people on this list, who had totally deserved nominations. If you're going to make a list of what is or isn't good, then you should explain why.

  • Jezzer

    I think the point is that Glee is a terrible show that shouldn't get nominated for non-Razzy awards.

  • Nicole

    It is a terrible show. But the nominations were from the first two seasons. And really first season was great. Lea deserved the nomination that season.

  • Jezzer

    True. I keep forgetting that Original Nose Lea had more layers.

  • Maddy

    I haven't watched Glee for a long time, but I don't think Lea Michele's nomination is laughable, she was consistently one of the best things on that show. I will defend Sandra Bullock and Hugh Jackman, but pretty much agree with the rest of it.

  • Even Stevens

    She has a stellar voice but her character is one of the most grating characters of all time. She's like a much less fun or likeable Tracy Flick.

  • Jennifer Schmennifer

    They nominate the performers, not their characters.

  • Even Stevens

    I understand that, but Lea Michele makes her obnoxious. A better actor could make her someone that you love to hate, but instead you just hate her.

  • Maddy

    I actually really liked Rachel's character, she was just a massive theatre nerd who happened to be really talented, and her friendship with Kurt was adorable. Later they made her a bit too unlikeable and went overboard with the love interest plots, but I liked her at the start. Maybe that's because I identity with her character minus the actual talent part though

  • Based on that header picture, if 'The Client List' deserves any sort of award, I would think Golden Globes would be far and away the most appropriate.

  • Ben

    Wait what was wrong with Bullock in the Proposal? She was great in that?

  • I always dug the sheer meta of the new Producers...Mel Brooks, washed up movie director (sorry) produces a hit movie based on his hit Broadway musical based on his original hit movie about a washed up Broadway producer who accidentally produces a Broadway hit.

    There's an Inception joke in there but it's been a long day.

  • freetickles

    Reading this list, I said "No way!" out loud at least 6 times.

  • Archie Leach

    Most laughable Oscar nominations of the 21st Century (so far):

    Avatar - Best Picture (2009)

  • Keith Welch

    If nothing else, thanks for the boobs.

  • space_oddity

    Or as we say in my house, Golden Globes.


  • wonkeythemonkey

    Aside from "Musical or Comedy" being a stupid category, what's wrong with The Producers being up for an award?

  • JAG

    Everyone's so married to the original so the cards were immediately stacked against the musical adaptation. Judged on it's own merit, and for the bygone styles it was paying homage to, it was actually pretty good.

  • Cowtools

    Because it was pretty dreadful?
    (TBH I haven't seen it because I love the original so much)

  • JAG

    It wasn't dreadful, it was the movie Brooks actually wanted to make, based on his own admission.

  • Davis

    The golden globes are a joke

  • Art3mis

    I know you have no soul, Dustin, but the Love, Actually screenplay nomination seems entirely deserved to me. It rightfully got beat by Lost in Translation, but I'm happy it was nominated.

  • BWeaves

    I thought the screenplay for Love, Actually was better than Lost In Translation.

  • Jezzer

    I thought they were both terrible, but in excitingly different ways.

  • fracas

    I think you'll find that it was Kathy Ireland in Necessary Roughness.

  • Helo

    Necessary Roughness is never not welcome on my screen.

  • Three_nineteen

    In addition to being a movie, Necessary Roughness is also a TV show on USA Network starring Callie Thorn.

    Don't worry if you've never heard of it; I like all the shitty USA shows and even I don't watch it.

  • So, we have done a 180 on The Proposal, have we, Dustin? And remember, we have caches and Internet Archive.

  • Luke Lane

    Jessica Alba was pretty good in Dark Angel....also, that's another show that died too soon.

  • rio

    I worked for a member of the hollywood foreign press and they are one of the most arse-kisser group out there, and from what I could tell in my specific case they know every very little about film and especially television. And they have the attention span of Dory the fish so Im really no surprised anymore with the crap they pull, It's a fucking miracle that Claire Danes got best actress in 1995 considering, considering all this.

  • Cowtools

    Hey, Hugh Jackman was great in Kate And Leopold. Far far better than that script deserved. What were the other great male comedy performances of 2001?

  • foolsage

    I have to agree.

  • Derreck

    Thank you!! I was totally getting ready to say the same thing. The movie might not have been anything special but he really sold that haughty, romantic character.

  • Cowtools

    Leopold almost seems like a dry run for Ichabod Crane on Sleepy Hollow now.

    I saw a Nostalgia Chick video on K&L which prompted me to rematch it, and I'm still astonished that the same man played Leopold, Wolverine, and Peter Allen on Broadway.

    And it's astonishing how charmless Meg Ryan is in K&L.

  • grr arrgh

    "Butter....must have...butter."

  • Ben

    My faviourte thing about it continues to be watching it followed by Wolverine Origins and pretending that Hugh Jackman and Liev Schreiber are the same characters in each.

  • Cowtools

    *Mind blown gif*

  • Jezzer

    *scans list for Greta Gerwig in "Frances Whine"*

    *doesn't find it*

    *declares list invalid*

  • kolimpah

    "I don't like this character; therefore the actor portraying her must have done a bad job."

  • Jezzer

    "What's my motivation?"

    "To whine like a spoiled toddler in dire need of a nap until every self-satisfied, entitled hipster in the audience has had a chance to identify with you, exhibiting absolutely zero character growth until you get handed a happy ending you neither earned nor deserved."

    "That sounds kind of shallow and one-dimensional."

    "No worries. We'll shoot it in black and white to trick everyone into thinking it's art."

  • Jezzer

    If the intent was to make me want to set her on fire, then GOOD FUCKING SHOW, GRETA.

  • Bedewcrock

    Is that the sequel to "Frances Ha"?

  • Jezzer

    No, it's the plot summary to "Frances Ha."

  • dilwazr

    The only reason Lea Michele's nomination is "laughable" is because she was nominated instead of Naya Rivera. Otherwise, I see no problem here.

  • /looks at banner pic

    I have no problem with her nomination.

  • I have no problem with her nomination breasts.

    There, I fixed it for you.

  • Is that Jennifer Love Hewitt in the header pic, or some washed up pornstar whose had too much plastic surgery? Seriously. I cannot tell who that is.

  • Helo

    I could have sworn it was Sofia Vergara.

  • Joe Grunenwald

    I honestly thought it was a Real Housewife of somewhere.
