*Yawn* Oscar Nominees Announced Today and Nobody Cares? *Yawn*

The full list is here, in case anyone’s curious. I haven’t seen any of the films nominated. Any worth streaming once they make it to Netflix streaming or Amazon Prime, the two services that have now replaced our family’s film-going and cable TV-watching?

Wes Anderson should stick to making stop motion animated adaptations of Roald Dahl books. I haven’t seen his new one — which apparently is the favorite to win, this  year — but none of his previous live action films really inspire me to make the effort with this one. The only more overrated Generation X director is, of course, Quentin Tarantino…

But Fantastic Mr. Fox is still cute and fun!
