This came true, and, killer stat: all three actors who provided the pleasure -- Julianne Moore, Mila Kunis and Ryan Gosling -- found themselves without nominations.


So would that make Chloe Sevigny and Hilary Swank the only oral sex pair (both the giver and receiver) to both be nominated?

Well, Hailee Steinfeld is actually 1/8 African American (and 1/4 Filipino!).

And how do you know anything about Hailee Steinfeld's lineage Irvin?

Per Wikipedia:

"Steinfeld was born in Tarzana, Los Angeles, the daughter of Cheri, an interior designer, and Peter Steinfeld, a personal fitness trainer. She has an older brother, Griffin,and her uncle is fitness trainer Jake Steinfeld. Her father is Jewish and her mother is of Filipino, African-American and European-American descent."

Somebody should tell that to Laurence O'Donnell, who is fast becoming as much of a windbag on the left as the Fox news idiots are on the right. For no good reason, his opened his show leading up to Obama's Sate of the Union address last night with the line "on the day that the Oscars did not nominate any African-Americans" or some such nonsense, saying the last time that happened Bill Clinton was in the White House. What that had to do with the State of the Union I don't know. He never followed up on the comment.

By my calculations this year the ten Best Picture Nominees earned 69 total nominations. No BP nominee received less than four nominations. Comparing to last year when the ten BP nominees received 54 total nominations, possibly indicating more parity this year and no 'Blind Side' type films.

Actually, Ingrid Bergman was nominated for Swedish speaking Autumn Sonata after being nominated 6 times for English speaking films, and winning twice.

She actually won THRICE.

THRIIIIICE. :p :D (Conan O'Brien reference).

The first year since 2004 to have 2 films each garner 3 Acting Nominations

The first year since 2000 without an African-American acting nomination (pretty astonishing after all those years of accused Academy racism)

Rooster Cogburn joins the short list of roles that brought 2 different actor Oscar nods

And it hasn't happened in a category outside of Supporting Actress since 1991, when it happened in Actress AND Supporting Actor

- Third consecutive year in which two actresses from the same film have been nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category and the seventh time in the past 11 years.

- Not sure if this is of note at all, but all five Best Actress nominees play contemporary, fictional characters in their respective films.

Don't ask me how I am pulling this one out of thin air, but Angels and Insects would have been the first.

FilmFan, you are right. And like Dogworth - semi erect.

Didn't Boogie Nights have one too? It's been a while since I saw it, so maybe I'm misremembering.

He showed his penis but it wasn't erect.

As for the masturbation question, how quickly you guys have forgotten Kevin Spacey in American Beauty.

O.K. semi erect then.

I think "exciting" is a more apt description.
