“Called Clooney ‘old.’ That was funny” — Six-Word Oscar Reviews

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

By Larry Smith

Our friend Kimberly Wetherell returns with her second annual Six-Word Oscar Review roundup on The Nervous Breakdown blog. Wetherell, a fillmmaker herself, doesn’t just flip off six for the Best Picture nominees, she’s penned six-word review for all the films in all the major categories. For its nomination for Original Screenplay, she sums up The Hurt Locker as, “This script actually stirred my patriotism.” For Up in the Air-nominated Supporting Actress Anna Kendrick, she offers, “Called Clooney ‘old.’ That was funny.” For Best Picture, Inglourious Basterds is boiled down to its six-word essence: “Tarantino + Pitt + Nazi-killing Jews = Comic perfection.” And the dueling Best Director frontrunners?

James Cameron: “Billions at box office buys ANYTHING.”
Kathryn Bigelow: “Proof that women belong behind cameras.”

Give her full list a spin over at the The Nervous Breakdown.

    The only sure bet this year is MoNique having won ALL awards in her category. My bets? Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, The Hurt Locker.

    First of all I would like to say awesome blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your head before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas
    or hints? Appreciate it!
