A couple of things:  Firstly?  Javier Bardem can thank Julia Roberts for her ummm, “campaign” to get his ass nominated.  I’m hoping to see a slap-fight between Horseface Roberts and Javier’s WIFE, Penna-Lope (it’s pronounced the way it’s spelled. Thank you, Andrew), because we all know a li’l sum-sum went on during the filming of Snort, Neigh, Cackle.  MAYBE…just tellin’ ya what I heard, yo.

Secondly!?  Randy-effing-Newman.  For the love of Pete.  Just GIVE it to him now, so I don’t have to look at him or worse yet, HEAR that annoying cutesy, nasal, old-ass stoner warble of his.  I’m serious.  Dude drives me outta my ever-lovin’ gourd.

All the other nominations are predictable, and I need to go tend to my stable of Horsefaces. I have some bartering to do.

Oh, and GO Black Cornish Game Hen!!!
