Amazing how award shows get fixated on a movie I never heard of. Don’t worry, America, I assure you, you weren’t the only person who never heard of this movie or anyone in it.
Anyway, congratulations for Heath Ledger and Mickey Rourke (two actors I actually blogged about) for walking away with People’s Choice and Golden Globe Awards (even though they are not prestigious awards). Too bad their movies (was Robert Downey, Jr. even nominated for Iron Man??) were unable to defeat Slumdog Millionaire, the Movie of the Year.
Slumdog has a 94/93% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so I guess that’s what the award shows use now.
I think it would be pretty funny if the movie was actually a fake post on that site.
Seriously, I don’t know many people (read: zero) that actually came to me in real life and said, “Man, did you see Slumdog Millionaire?”
