God help me I'm on-site for this shit. Sorry, I'm cranky but my Jetta got humped by an SUV on Sunday and I'm rather stiff and sore (not in a good way) and wondering if i really needed another reason to hate people who drive SUVs. Thankfully SUV's have really, really small cocks and no balls to speak of so internal damage was at a minimum, but I got creamed in the face regardless. Anyway, last thing I wanted to be doing at 4:whatever this morning was a drive over to Beverly Hills for this, regardless of the fact that I'm WGA and on strike, alas my "other" job (the one that pays the bills) requires my presence. This is an ungodly hour of day to ask someone to be functional. And yes, I'm wondering why I'm compelled to literally live-blog this for LPSG, considering there's probably east coast or European LPSG'er's in a much better state of mind to report on this than me at this hour but whatever. I have nothing else to do, and I'm tired, sore, and peeved. So goddamnit let them do an IP search and say, "Odd... someone here apparently has a large penis." Without further ado... and reserving hotbtminla comment later after he gets some goddamn sleep... the nominees for the 80th annual Academy Awards are (for the categories I have in front of me): PICTURE: Atonement Juno Michael Clayton No Country for Old Men There Will Be Blood DIRECTOR: Julian Schnabel, "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" Jason Reitman, "Juno" Paul Thomas Anderson, "There Will Be Blood" Joel & Ethan Coen, "No Country for Old Men" Tony Gilroy, "Michael Clayton" ACTRESS: Cate Blanchett, "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" Julie Christie, "Away From Her" Marion Cotillard, "La Vie En Rose" Laura Linney, "The Savages" Ellen Page, "Juno" ACTOR: George Clooney, "Michael Clayton" Daniel Day-Lewis, "There Will Be Blood" Johnny Depp, "Sweeney Todd" Tommy Lee Jones, "In the Valley of Elah" Viggo Mortensen, "Eastern Promises" SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Cate Blanchett, "I'm Not There" Ruby Dee, "American Gangster" Saoirse Ronan, "Atonement" Amy Ryan, "Gone Baby Gone" Tilda Swinton, "Michael Clayton" SUPPORTING ACTOR: Casey Affleck, "The Assassination of Jesse Jame by the Coward Robert Ford" Javier Bardem, "No Country for Old Men" Philip Seymour Hoffman, "Charlie Wilson's War" Hal Holbrook, "Into the Wild" Tom Wilkinson, "Michael Clayton" ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: Diablo Cody, "Juno" Nancy Oliver, "Lars and the Real Girl" Tony Gilroy, "Michael Clayton" Brad Bird, "Ratatouille" Tamara Jenkins, "The Savages" ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: Christopher Hampton, "Atonement" Sarah Polley, "Away From Her" Ronald Harwood, "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" Joel & Ethan Coen, "No Country for Old Men" Paul Thomas Anderson, "There Will Be Blood"
