The 2009 Cinematical Nominees!!

The Academy has released their nominations. I’m sure that those people that were nominated are very pleased…but that’s nothing. Wait till they find out they were nominated for a Cinematical!

My rules are simple: In order to be nominated, I need to have actually seen the movie. That’s it. Also, I have actually factored in comedies. A comedy is still a movie, no matter what the Academy wants you to think. So…you are in the mix “Role Models”.

One more note, there may not be the standard five nominees. For example, Best Actress only has four. Remember, if I didn’t see it, it’s not in the mix.

    Are we the readers voting? Or is the voting simply you?

    “Role Models” was one of my favorite movies all year. I think it’s so unfair that comedy is overlooked for acting awards!

    I haven’t decided on the voting yet. I’m trying to get that figured out on how to do it.

    Doesn’t Paul Rudd essentially play the same guy in every movie, Paul Rudd?
