Yeah, I think so, too. It was just a weird thing to say without making it obvious that you're joking.

Jack doesn't gaf. He sees what he wants, and he wants what is 60 years younger than him, and he takes it.

They expanded the Best Picture nominations to 10 in 2009 and kept Director at 5 so it was bound to happen eventually. I think Affleck not getting nominated got him a big sympathy vote for best picture too.

It mostly means lol academy. If Affleck was nominated he would have won most likely, wrap your head around that one.

Matt Atchity of RT claims Ben Affleck would have been nominated for best director if he were less handsome/famous. He likened it to DiCaprio not being nominated (for best actor) for Catch Me If You Can because of his reputation as a young hollywood playboy.

Clooney got nominated for Good Night and Good Luck in 2005 though, I just don't think they thought Argo would get as much steam for Best Picture as it did.

eta - that was back when it was 5 directors and 5 best pictures though so maybe you're right

Hey y'all. Just wanted to vent here because it will make me feel better to type this - and I don't know where else I'd post it. I'm just ****ing pissed off at the world right now.

Got married in October 2011. Father in law passed away November 2011. Mother in law has early onset Alzheimer's. Just got word that we have our second consecutive failed IVF cycle. Failed this time despite transferring "3 beautiful embryos" that were all graded very highly by the lab.

No real point to this post, just **** everything man. To say I'm on life tilt would be a major understatement.

Thanks for listening. Now back to your regularly scheduled terrible posting about ****ty bands and dolphins.
