Which One Of These Is Not Like The Other?

This is that time of year, when Oscar nominations are out, and the almost-nominated Oscar hopefuls were already booked for events despite the fact that they weren’t actually nominated. The biggest example is probably this new, “Oscar Roundtable,” hosted by Newsweek. It features Brad Pitt, Frank Langella, Mickey Rourke, Anne Hathaway, Robert Downey Jr., and Sally Hawkins. But, wait, Sally Hawkins didn’t receive an Oscar nomination. Justice, or bad coincidence? It’s kind of like the January/February tributes that occur during regional film festivals such as Santa Barbara. The 24th annual event (which serves as an Oscar schmoozefest) will honor Penelope Cruz, Kate Winslet, Mickey Rourke, Clint Eastwood, and Kristen Scott Thomas. For better or worse, though, Eastwood and Thomas did not make the final Oscar nominee tally. Justice, or bad coincidence?
