Random movie & music bizness

The SAG nominations came out this moring.

A couple things that bothered me:

1) Into the Wild (which i loved) got noms for 3 of it's stars (which i loved) but then also got an ensemble cast nom. Um Hi. This makes no sense to me. How about giving it to another movie that didn't already get 3 nominations? Not to mention, pretty much the whole movie is emile hirsch by himself. All of the supporting actors are onscreen for an average of 15 minutes.
Why not give it to Juno? Every single person here is flawless in their roles. Jennifer Garner should be getting way more attention here people. That scene where she runs into Juno & Leah in the mall....Uh Maze Zing.

2) No Paul Dano again. What the heck does this poor dude have to do to get nominated? He is scarily good in TWBB. Anyone who can act opposite Daniel Day-Lewis and still make you get goosebumps needs to be recognized. Don't get me started (don't even get me started) on him getting ignored for Little Miss Sunshine.

Oh, and I guess I'm watching the Superbowl this year. They are going to be showing some really good movie previews . I feel like me saying I will watch the Superbowl to watch the ads is like a dude saying he looks at Playboy for the articles. I'm not lying though. I'll watch anything for an Iron Man preview!

Pitchfork released their top 50 albums of the year.
Here's my top 9:
Radiohead- In Rainbows
Arcade Fire- Neon Bible
Justice- +
Spoon- Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
LCD Soundsystem- Sound of Silver
The White Stripes- Icky Thump
Feist- The Reminder
Death Proof Soundtrack
Juno Soundtrack

The Onion AV Club has their Best movies and Worst movies of the year.
Good choices for the most part.

Last but not least:
Happy Birthday Jonah Hill.

Searched for the SAG nominations and stumbled on your blog. :) Totally agree with your views, especially about Paul Dano. I thought he was great in TTWB. Someone give him a nomination. Please?
