This morning's weirdness includes...
Bridesmaids in Ensemble???
Actress: Glenn Close's nomination means she's back in the game after a tough week of being left out...and how about Tilda?
Actor: Bichir in...a surprise, sort of, there has been a lot of critical support...NO FASSBENDER!!! Come one SAG! Also a bit surprised that DiCaprio is in since "J.Edgar" hasn't really been tearing it up critically.
Supporting Actress: I guess I'm going to have to seriously consider the possibility that McCarthy/Bridesmaids might be an actual Oscar contender...Yay for McTeer!!! NO MULLIGAN!!! NO WOODLEY. (The Woodley snub was a real surprise) Come on SAG!
Supporting Actor: Armie Hammer...really??? No Albert Brooks??? I'm not all that bothered by the omission of Mr. Brooks. I've said repeatedly that he's been getting over-heated notices for a modest and competent, but unremarkable performance. Jonah Hill...you know, i think he IS actually very good in Moneyball...but he does so much other dreck...(The Sitter...)
