Can we get a haterade?
A commenter we now worship sent us this:
"Where's the haterade for Jason Reitman getting a Best Director nod? I'm disappointed at your lack of outrage."
Aw, admit it, you're just sore that the nepotism fairy hasn't waved her wand over you, or blessed you with an overwritten script by a former STRIPPER so you, too, could "direct" your way onto Hollywood's A-list.
There's more, from our obviously riled-up e-mailer:
"The only thing Juno deserved was for little Ellen Page acting her heart out for a cloying script that most DEFINITELY did not deserve a best script nod, honest to blog."
Fair warning: we intend to steal "honest to blog" and sprinkle it liberally into our cocktail banter, and we adore your hot-headed use of ALL CAPS. Saucy! More to the point, you may be onto something here, with Reitman on a list that could've included Sidney Lumet or David Fincher or Tim Burton (or, as our commenter suggests, Sarah Polley). For shame, Academy voters aka Friends of Ivan Reitman?
Others may share your opinion, KT, (vent, people, vent!) and we certainly support your right to spew. We'll try not to disappoint you in the future, but hey, that's a pretty tall order. Let us know either way -- we can take it.
