When coming up with figures, exclude last year. Had the directors nominated Ben Affleck, he would have won, so a phenomenon that has only happened four times should not skew numbers.

Seriously? You're ONE HUNDRED PERCENT convinced? In December? That a scenario that happens very infrequently will unquestionably happen beyond any shadow of a doubt?


Well , it happened 33% of the time during the last 15 years.

I'd love to see James Franco get a nomination just to watch Anne Hathaway look exceedingly uncomfortable making the presentation on Oscar night.

I like him, but I'd never call him humble.

Count me in. Everyone thinks he's this overly-smart, humble method actor, but he's one of the biggest college fratboy douchebags in the business.

I will never forgive him for getting a Columbia professor fired. The man shows up to no more than five classes, and the professor fails him for not completing any work - the university scraps the teacher.

The guy also runs around kissing men in public to "toy with" the paparazzi when he's really just getting out his latent homosexual urges. Mark my words, he'll come out of the closet in the next five years. He's been in one public relationship throughout his career, and it ended shortly after.

His nomination for Best Actor was also an awful choice.

And his hosting the Oscars. That's the most unforgivable thing.

Seriously, fuck James Franco.

I'm guessing the roadblock for Franco isn't the character he plays or the movie he's in, but the possibility that there are a bunch of people in the industry who just can't stand him as a person. Still, his is the softest category this year by far.

It's not going to happen. Not only is it an Academy-unfriendly movie (even moreso that the Kechiche film this year), but I don't think a single character like this has ever been nominated by the Academy.

Noted. Franco did just tie for the the LAFC Best Supporting Actor award with Jared Leto.

Guess they didn't care for the way their city was (briefly) depicted in 12 Years A Slave.
