Part 1:- Australian Open
The Australian open has yet again paved the way for an outsider to reach the men’s final . First, it was Baghdatis, then Gonzalez and now Tsonga. While one finalist has been a surprise, the other one has unsurprisingly been the same. Looks like the Swiss guy doesn’t know any path other than the road to the final. His domination has been such that he deserves not to lose to any player except, maybe to Marat and Djokovic*.
The women’s singles, on the other hand has fortunately not been a one (wo)man show and has, in fact done very well by sending three glamor girls into the last four.
Part 2:- Oscar nominations
Best Picture ->I have watched only two of the five films nominated and i would say that neither of them deserves to be alongside movies like American Beauty, Crash, The Departed and some of the rest.
Best Actor ->I only watched one of them and i must say that except for his naked fight, he has managed to do nothing.
Best Supporting Actor -> Saw two of them, and was impressed by both. Having said that, one of them owes it to his dialogues and the other to his role.
Best Actress -> Could see only one and was surprised that the nomination has gone her way, considering the normal tradition wherein conventional roles aren’t recognized.
Supporting Actress -> I didn’t notice either of the two in their respective movies (so, WTF)
Part 3 :- Razzies
No razzies ceremony is complete without Lindsay Lohan, and that is precisely what’s happened again. I was afraid that the gay movie would go unnoticed but thankfully it hasn’t. Our LAN has in fac,t more of these movies than the Oscar ones.
Actors worth mentioning would be
3)Lindsay Lohan:- was nominated twice for each of the dual role she played in I Know Who Killed Me.
Guide to above:-
1) Juno, No country for old men
2) Viggo Mortensen a.k.a Aragorn
3) Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Javier Bardem
4) Ellen Page
5) Ruby Dee, Amy Ryan
the gay movie – “I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry”
*Djokovic, as you might recall is allegedly Marat with a brain
