Happy Oscar nominations! This is the most magical time of year.
Now that the holidays are over and we're through with appreciating our families and friends, we can get back to our core values of winning, dresses and glamor.
This year's Oscar nominations featured some bizarre issues, including Best Director snubs for Ben Affleck and Kathryn Bigelow, strange acting selections like Jacki Weaver, and a shout-out to that drippiest of James Bond anthems, "Skyfall."
In this edition of Weeklings!, I uncover the Academy's idiocy with splintering detail -- even though I have an insane, eternal obsession with the Oscars. Love you, AMPAS! Even if you truly enjoyed Silver Linings Playbook.
