Oscar Breakdown by Category – Best Foreign Language Film, Best Animated FIlm & Best Visual Effects

Best Foreign Language film is the Academy acknowledging the little people and trying not to seem that racist about it.

It’s the equivalent of Foot Locker or Nike being like, “Today we’re going to bring in the crew of Big Bob’s Sports Wear and watch them make the products,” and then they have the entire corporation stand around for just the one day and be like, “Yeah, all right tiny competitor!” and clapping and shit, and then sending them back on their way to worry about paying the rent for the next month.

That’s Best Foreign Language Film in a nutshell. I’m not going to bother listing all the winners, because you don’t know them, I don’t know them and we don’t give a fuck about them. Ice cream. So, we’ll just skip right ahead to the nominees.

This is why I did it this way. One category we don’t go over and one is incredibly short. That’s why there are three today. (more…)

Pic of the Day: “Don’t be so gloomy. After all it’s not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love – they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.”
