I'll make note to watch it after getting a root canal and my penis circumsised by a blind rabbi with a rusty blade.

While wearing a wooly jumper.

Why? It's not as if they came from a markedly different background (i.e. social strata) before they got down on their luck, did they? So it would just be more of the same except a) they'd be younger and b) we'd already know they're not going to strike it rich in the lifetime of the series.

Because!
a) Shut up, and
b) quiet you.

I was just saying, I didn't even watch it, but OFAH original had its moments.

I didn't watch much of it either. Not that I didn't like it but after The Secret Life of Edgar Briggs and then Open All Hours I was pretty much David Jasoned-out.

So ABC has decided to cancel Ugly Betty. WTF! This is a fave show and I canít believe they did that.

Oscar nominees released

Multiple nominations include:
9 noms for Avatar and The Hurt Locker
8 for Inglourious Basterds
6 for Precious and Up in the Air
5 for Up
4 for District 9, Nine, and Star Trek

Some highlights:
Up was one nomination shy of tying Beauty and the Beast for most nominations for an animated film, although Up did it in 5 distinct categories while B&B did it in 4, making Up more prolific.
Up is also the second animated film and first CGI film to be nominated for Best Picture.
Up and Avatar are the first films released in 3D to be nominated for Best Picture.
Avatar and District 9 are one of a few science fiction films to be nominated for Best Picture, although I and many others feel that Avatar is much less sci-fi driven as D9 is.
None of the Golden Globe nominees for Best Picture - Comedy/Musical made it to the Oscars' Best Picture category.
No comedy actors got in, whilst only one comedy actress got into Best Actress: Meryl Streep.
Clint Eastwood got bumped from Best Director for Lee Daniels for Precious.
Original Screenplay will be interesting, with Globe-winner Up in the Air over in the Adapted category: Coen Bros vs. Tarantino vs. Pixar.
Randy Newman busted into the Oscars again.
Cloud with a Chance of Meatballs got bumped for The Secret of Kells, an Irish-Belgian-French film I've never heard of.

Overall, I'm quite happy with nominations. Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus got some nods in the design categories, which are much deserved. District 9 got some love despite it being a South African sci-fi flick about apartheid. And Pixar finally got the respect it deserved. Up deserves the nod, don't get me wrong, but this is obviously a make-up nomination for not giving a look to WALL-E last year.

A surprise is that The Blind Side was nominated for Best Picture. It wasn't exactly "Best Picture material". I far would've rathered Moon be nominated.


Also: Most Pirated Videos of 2009. The #1 movie was Watchmen, and the surprising #1 TV show was Heroes. Would NBC renew it based on pirate figures?

Christopher Waltz deserves that one.  His role made Inglourious Basterds worth it for me.

And Avatar should only win in the technical awards.

I would've accepted (500) Days of Summer or Moon. Or retroactively nominating Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. They can do that now, right?

In TV news, anyone who doesn't watch Castle, on ABC starring Nathan Fillion needs to.

That is all!

Castle is too much like The Mentalist.  If I want to watch an unctuous douchebag trade vaguely flirtatious, sarcastic barbs with his dark-haired sexual tensor while solving mysteries, I'll just watch House.

Never saw it.  Is it more comedy-based crime solving or smugness-based crime solving?

Ahaha...Cougartown is pretty good. "I feel like I can see colours again!" Aww. I think I will keep watching it. Christa Miller's character is basically just Jordan again..but there's nothing wrong with that.

Not really, she's actually a lot nicer than Jordan. But I love the show, I'm so happy that it's good. Cause the last show Courtney Cox was in (Dirt) bored the hell out of me.

Anyone remember some sort of kids show from the late 80s or early 90s that featured some sort of female wizard puppet with what looked like horns?  I think it was on Nickelodeon.  My sister used to watch it, and I would make fun of it because the wizard puppet character's horns looked like cream horns from the bakery.
