A note to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences...

Dear AMPAS,


Fuck you for snubbing The Dark Knight. You couldn't have omitted The Reader, which hardly anyone's ever seen or heard of; or Milk, which seems more like an Acting nomination showcase than a Best Picture nominee? You even snubbed Casino Royale for Best Picture and Best Original Song back in 2007 (I thought you fuckers LOVED Paul Haggis!). Would it kill you to pull another Return of the King and give the awards to something that pulled in money while being an amazing artistic feat?!

Fuck you and all of your self important horses,

Mr. C

And now, on to more important matters...

Details for the 2009 AMC Best Picture Showcase (full details to be added tomorrow): http://amctheatres.com/promos/showcase/
Full list of nominations: http://www.imdb.com/features/rto/2009/oscars
Full list of IMAX theaters showing The Dark Knight: http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=52148

You decide which news is more important.

(Also, if you're in NY, LA, Or Chicago, you've got a double bill of Batman Begins @ 8 PM and The Dark Knight @ 11 PM in IMAX. NY and LA get it tonight, Chicago gets it tomorrow night, and the rest of us are left screaming "FUCKERS!" at the top of our lungs.)

Nobody cares about the Oscars anymore! It's all about the BAFTAS, bitches!

...true. At least if you guys are looking for a host, Stephen Fry is always available, and he could host the shit out of anything.
