I just realized...

...that Bruce Springsteen was NOT nominated for his song "The Wrestler" from "The Wrestler." Are you kidding me?! Last year, there were five original song nominees and this year there are three. Last year, most of the songs nominated were from that "Enchanted" movie; this year, two of the three are from "Slumdog Millionaire." The third is Peter Gabriel's song from "Wall-E."

What the hell is that? For all its failings, the Golden Globes were able to find five original songs to nominate. The Academy can't muster the energy for two more? What, Bruce Springsteen won once so know it's Peter Gabriel's turn?

The Oscars don't mean anything, and it's ridiculous to get worked up over them. But they are such a complete affront to taste and quality that they are offensive.
