Did you see that, Golden Globes. There was a film called True Grit that was eligible and worthy of nominations. Note also: nothing for Tourist.

Please "No" to Natalie Portman. Yes, she was good in Black Swan, but I don't think it was as much of a stretch of her acting chops to play a repressed, infantalized young woman. There are others who are better this time, but I fear they want to give it to Natalie.

I am appalled that -- with the exception of MSNBC and FNC -- every TV news channel (including all the local ones and CNN) thought they needed to broadcast the nominations live this morning. On a weekday morning at 8:30 a.m., this is what passes as news in our country? Sad statement on how vapid Americans have become -- or how vapid news executives THINK we've all become!

Oscar Noms and State of the Union on the same day. Someone wasn't planning very well (or was planning very well if they want to hide something).

I like the idea that somewhere people will be disputing the snub of The Tourist while the president announces the repeal of The Baby-, Job-, Old Person- and Buzz- Killing Healthcare Act and the simultaneous introduction of a newer, more heavily armed Second Amendment.

(Second Dot Oh Amendment: "Only two things you need in life to get by on this planet: Love and a .45".)
