The Oscar nominated films I've seen are Juno and Sweeney. I'm starting to think I have bad taste in movies. I thought for-sure Resident Evil 3 would get a nom for something.

Thanks again for moving my couch and making sure black people don't steal the stuff I'm just going to throw away in 6 weeks anyways!

I cannot believe how many of these movies I haven't seen.

I GOT 4 OUT OF HOWEVER MANY. wow. I guess i should have SEEN some of the movies first. OH WELL. B-0R-ING. I fell asleep on the couch watching it. SIGH.

Knight said...

I didn't watch it because the only thing I have seen is Sweeney Todd. Seriously that's it. I want to find out what that milkshake thing is about though.

Really, it's all about Juno and Sweeney, and the Oscars were a complete waste of a nap.
