By now, the three major award ceremonies in the field of film have announced their nominations, with the start of this week seeing the 72nd Golden Globes take place, with the BAFTAs and Academy Awards to happen in the near future.
HOLY SH*T, VIRGIL!!!
This'll put a shock to your system!!!
The Oscars are this Sunday, and I for one am woefully unprepared to make my picks in the annual bet I have with my friends. I have seen almost literally none of the films nominated this year, and I only have a few days left to get caught up if I'm going to stand a chance at winning the coveted prize of lunch at the local Chinese buffet. Thankfully, the tiny folks at Copycat Kidz have put together a highlight reel of sorts to cover the major players in this year's Academy Awards.
I'm feeling kind of chipper and awake this morning, and I think it's because the Oscar nominations were announced. As much as I believe they're just a meaningless mutual appreciation society for Hollywood types, every year around this time I get unspeakably excited about them. I think the Academy might be beaming radio signals into my head or something.

loves his pop culture references. No, wait, that's not saying it right: Quentin Tarantino looOOOoOooOOves
his pop culture references. The crew at CollegeHumor has illustrated just how true that is with a five-minute video compiling every single pop culture reference in his films, arranged in chronological order.
They left out Django Unchained
, however. But Rebecca
, you might say. There are no pop culture references in
Django. It took place before there were somewhat obscure-yet-cool movies and TV shows for Tarantino to reference!
Yes. That's true. But he still managed it.
It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears
Have you been spending this week crying into your twitter account over your unfortunate lack of being at Comic-Con? Don't worry; us, too. But never fear! For the past few days we've been bringing you roundups
of the SDCC's biggest announcements. Hit the jump for Marvel's many revelations, a new character on Once Upon a Time
, the first Godzilla
poster, and more.
Continuing his attempt to make a movie in every possible genre, director and auteur Quentin Tarantino
is tackling Westerns in his upcoming film Django Unchained.
The first teaser for this upcoming bullet-laden revenge fest was released yesterday and it looks pretty fantastic. See it, and judge for yourself, after the break.
