Anybody who played Mary Todd Lincoln was gonna get nominated for Best Supporting Actress, just be happy it wasn't John Travolta.

If these are old white people voting, as you suggested earlier, why didn't Best Exotic Marigold Hotel get nominated for anything? In fact, there seem to be no Dames at all this year, this must be rare.

Nobody seems to be complaining about the total exclusion of Dark Knight Rises or the near total exclusion of The Hobbit. Did the nerds sleep in today?

Also, should we begin conspiracy theories about the random Seth MacFarlane nomination?

BTW: If you follow the link to the Paranorman review, comments are closed. How bad did they get? Even some of your most moronic stories of the year - the Silverado pricing scandal for example - didn't have their comments sections closed.
