Gran Torino snubbed from Oscar Nomination

Can you believe this shit? Eastwood didn't get a nomination for Best Actor but Brad Pitt did for Benjamin Button. Haven't seen The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (although I've got a copy of it sitting in front of me right now) but I can't imagine Pitt outdoing Eastwood comparing the two characters.




2008 Lincoln MKZ
1995 Mustang GT Convertible
2002 F-150 SuperCrew


1995 Ford Taurus SHO
2003 Yamaha R6

That's fuckng bullshit, I havn't seen BB yet but I heard it was very preditable and not very good. Gran Torino was a baddass movie though. Fuck the oscars anyway!

Clint Eastwood did good in Gran Torino.. but Oscar worthy? Come on ..
His age is catching up to him and he still thinks he's dirty harry.


BTW: Gran Torino has been the best movie i've seen in a while...
BB was good also.

I will say BB is amazing, i think they deserve all the nods they can get, gran torino is good too, and yes i will argue brad is every bit as good as clint is in BB, a new level of acting for him

unbelievable!!! i hate the Oscars.

I've seen a little bit of Benjamin Button and honestly i didn't like it because the story moved along to slow.

I have not seen either, but will see Gran Torino, but BB just looks plain stupid to me. I don't think I could make myself watch it, even if they paid me afterwards. An old guy who gets younger as he grows up, WTF? And yes, I read about the symbolism and shit in the movie, don't care for that, I wanna either LMAO, see shit get blown up and/or shot, or tits, that's a good movie!

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

well you might be upset with Gran Torino about shit getting blown up or shots....

GT seemed more like a comedy to me.. caught me by surprise.

First off, he still is Dirty Harry. Always will be. Second, he still kicks ass as an 80 year old. Finally, the last 3+ movies he's been in (that I can recall) he was far from Dirty Harry - Gran Torino (pulled the trigger once, and it was because he slipped and fell); Million Dollar Baby (not even a former badass); and Space Cowboys.

No, that it's only been out two weeks! Not nearly long enough to be spitting out spoilers. Your mother sews socks in hell.

I didn't tell you how it ended, and it wasn't on purpose. I was going to apologize, but then I remembered I don't like you anyways. Go fuck Nessie, you half-ape abomination.

I watched both gt and bb but by far Gran Torino took the cake. The movie was really well put especially in this type of suburbs we are starting to see things change. He did a excellent job at his acting, truth to be BB was a really well put movie but as a oscar winner i cannot see it. Not to get me wrong is was really good but not close to that good with all the nominations it got. My 2 cents

I'll bet GT won't get anything special b/c of the racial slurs in it, altho i enjoyed it. IMO BB was about stupid and way too long.
