If swear words are your favourite part of any movie, then this “profanity reel” will pretty much bring you up to speed with all the angst in this year’s Best Picture Oscar nominees.
“You selfish butthead,” “shithouse crazy” and “sourpus” are the most PG words (mostly from the Help) and they just get worse from there.
It makes me think that someone has a little bit too much time on their hands. I mean, they had to keep track of all the swear words in every nominated film, go back, cut it and make it flow together.
The Oscars are just over a week away and while I’d love to cave-in temporarily at the theatre to catch this year’s nominated films, I also have to work… and eat… and sleep. Luckily, we found this movie mashup of the films nominated for Best Picture and it’s only a minute!
This year, the nominations are: The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, War Horse.
Now if only we could get a compilation for all the other categories. Who are you rooting for?
The Oscar nominations were announced this morning in L.A. and while there are some expected nods (like Michelle Williams and Meryl Streep) there are a few awful surprises. For instance, why is everyone in “The Help” nominated? Why is “Tree of Life” nominated for Best Picture when it should have been a film gone straight to DVD? It also sucks that Ryan Gosling was robbed, so I’m going to have to write a letter to the Academy.
The only good surprise stemming from this roster of nominations is Melissa McCarthy for her supporting role in “Bridesmaids”. My money’s on Melissa, although realistically, she’ll probably lose to one of the 573097654 actresses in “The Help”.
