Is anyone besides me ambivalent about the Oscars this year?

    Usually they're my Superbowl but for some reason I just can't get my hype level up for them. Maybe it's because I was bummed Jamie Foxx didn't get a best actor nod or maybe because none of the movies nominated I saw or liked besides Wreck It Ralph. Feels like an off year.

    Anyone else feel the same way?

    Well, if the Golden Globes are any indication, we're in for a long, boring night.
    Although, I was very happy to see Ben Affleck win.
    Who's hosting the Oscars ?

    Seth Overrated Asshole McFarlane I believe is hosting it.

    I'm going to watch but I just feel like this is going to be a very boring ceremony. It'll be whiter than the year of Black Swan and True Grit.

    Thanks.
    Doesn't look promising, but I'll give him a chance...

    I just hope he keeps the fart jokes to a minimum. Toilet humor is not the place for a classy event like this. They need to get Ellen to host again or maybe Wanda Sykes or Tina Fey.

    For me, I think it's because I've never heard of some of the movies nominated and I watch lots of movies. I've never of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel until the Golden Globes.

    I didn't even know that was nominated. What's that nominated for?

    Just the Golden Globes with Judi Dench and Maggie Smith headlining I'm shocked it didn't get nominated.

    Les Miserables was terrible.
