How many of you schmucks can even locate Algeria on a map.
(Hint: Algeria is not a river, ocean or mountain. No, definitely not the name of Rajinikanth’s next movie.) 😉
Folks, the Nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards a.k.a. Oscars were announced today.
Algeria has an entry in Outside the Law, (directed by Rachid Bouchareb).
Denmark, with a population one-fourth that of the Mumbai metropolitan region, has a nomination – In a Better World.
And to those who think Mexico is merely a synonym for cocaine and heroin, think again. Think Biutiful (Javier Bardem, Blanca Portillo).
Ha Ha Ha, Don’t Even Ask
Of course, you putzheads will ask.
No, there were no Indian movies in the list.
Anybody surprised? Not us, definitely.
Bloody hell, no way these Bollywood, Kollywood or Tollywood Hanumans can make the Oscars’ cut.
Folks, if we’ve said it once we’ve said it a million times. Indian filmmakers and actors are for the most part a bunch of incompetent boobs and thieves who’d be laughed out of the movie hall by anyone except these South Asian troglodytes.
It’s a shame to think that India probably makes more films than all other countries put together with the exception of the U.S. and China.
Again, Indian music director A.R.Rahman has come riding to the rescue with two nominations.
The first for Best Original Score in 127 Hours and the second in the Best Original Song category for “If I Rise” from 127 Hours – A.R. Rahman, Rollo Armstrong and Dido.
Just in case you were hiding under some rock, 127 Hours is directed by Danny Boyle of Slumdog Millionaire fame.
Inshallah, Rahman will return with two statuettes.
