Forgive the late post. xD

Black Swan leads the Broadcast Film Critics nominations with 12 nods, including Best Film, Director, Actress, and Supporting Actress. In the newcomer award, Chloe “Hit Girl” Moretz earns two nods for Kick-Ass, as well as Let Me In… which could pretty much suck because that would mean her votes split… or she could win for Kick-Ass, just because Hit Girl is awesome.

Why couldn’t they nominate her once for both like they do in Japan?

Cool stuff from these nominations? Some love for I Love You Philip Morris! And nomination for Jennifer Lawrence for Winter’s Bone in Best Actress and Young Actor/Actress, that’s going against Hailee Steinfeld for True Grit in Supporting Actress and Young Actor/Actress – it’s on!

Sucky about this? There’s no consistency in nominees… you’ve got categories with only 3 nominations — they’d better have nominated Madeo (Mother) last year, or I’m calling foul.

I’m never really good with Satellite Awards, I always forget them. But then again, there’s so many Satellite nominees per category… it seems a bit excessive. It’s like chucking all the best performances of the year, instead of choosing five spots even if three good performances will be left out.

And when there’s not enough good performances… they just fill the category up!

Inception is leading this one ;P

Yes, this is a romantic comedy post.

Entertainment Weekly has a new post titled What Hollywood Gets Wrong about Women and Marriage, in light of the recent release of Amy Adams’ Leap Year.

Obviously, Rom-Coms are a branch of Chick Flicks, and Chick Flicks are doomed. Especially in the West, where Chick Flick is a super negative tag on a film. Whip Ip (which I enjoyed a lot) is a Chick Flick, and it’s fun. My dad enjoyed it a lot. We should totally watch Roller Derby together.

But Rom-Coms, where they specifically want a female character to find love/get together/get married with someone, they are doomed on a different level. American (as a continent) Romantic Comedies forget that it’s not about people getting together or marrying, and completely forget the characters. In the end, we just don’t care enough for the character to care if she is or not getting the guy.

Do you recall any good romantic comedies of the past 10 years?

I remember I liked Imagine Me & You, My Sassy Girl (Korean version), Saving Face, Love Actually, Were the World Mine, Love me if You Dare~~~ well, that’s a pretty gay selection. LOL

Sometimes SNL comes through with some pretty photos of their celebrity hosts, and their musical guests… some of them by Mary Ellen Matthews and Jed Root. One of my favorite ones of Natalie Portman. xD

I should be really working on these more often because there are 3 more left before I get to choose the ones from 2009~~~ This time around, I kind of feel like i didn’t get to watch many good films. It was really tough to find 3 animated films to include, and considered to just choose two instead, but I found 3 xD so I hope it’s not mostly filler~
