Barack drops the SOTU on us tomorrow.
Now a question: How stupid is Matthew Rothschild? And how sexist is he?
This is from his column published today:
The group, the James Agee Cinema Circle, nominated the following films for best progressive picture: Made In Dagenham; The King’s Speech; The Social Network; Even The Rain; Casino Jack; and Route Irish.
For best actor in a progressive film, the group nominated: Kevin Spacey - Casino Jack; Edgar Ramirez – Carlos; Mark Wahlberg -- The Fighter; Geoffrey Rush – The King’s Speech; James Franco, Howl.
For best actress, it nominated: Sally Hawkins -- Made In Dagenham; Naomi Watts -- Fair Game.My first thought was, "Only two women earned acting honors?" Then I used the link Matty provided. Uh-0h. From the link:
JAY BARUCHEL: THE TROTSKY
TOMMY LEWIS: RED HILL
ANTHONY MACKIE: NIGHT CATCHES US
KEVIN SPACEY: CASINO JACK
DANNY TREJO: MACHETE
JESSICA ALBA, MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ: MACHETE
SALLY HAWKINS: MADE IN DAGENHAM
Q'ORIANKA KILCHER: PRINCESS KAIULANI
NOOMI RAPACE: THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
HILARY SWANK: CONVICTION
SHABNAM TALOUI: WOMEN WITHOUT MEN
YAHIMA TORRES: BLACK VENUS
Get it? Many women were nominated. Sexist Matty just didn't want to list them. Stupid Matty saw "Noomi Rapace" and thought it read 'Naomi Watts." Poor, stupid, Matty.
