    Really, Oscar?

    This needed its own press release? To me it might as well say "Oscar Show Getting Desperate; Resorts To 1998 Lineup For Ideas."

    The 25 Best Nine Inch Nails Songs

    Definitely one of my very favorite things about this awards season has the been the presence of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, who I figured at one point would be left out of the mix for their "Social Network" score, basically because it was too innovative and contemporary for stuffy Academy voters. But now they're nominated, and are by far the potential winner I have my fingers crossed the hardest for. Not just because I thought their score was "The Social Network"'s best asset, but also because I have a long history with Mr. Reznor.

    'Killing Bono' Soundtrack To Feature Song By Pre-U2 Group The Hype

    No, it's not some twisted fantasy of a U2 hater, instead, "Killing Bono" is based on the true story of two brothers who form a band together but are consistently overshadowed by their classmates, who go on to form U2. That's gotta hurt. And with a release date around the corner, you won't be be surprised to find a U2 song on there but you might be surprised that a pre-U2 track by the shortlived The Hype has made its way onto the soundtrack.

    Oscar Thoughts

    This time last year I was giddy with excitement in anticipation of the Oscars. The narrative about the awards was all about a woman finally being able to break through the boys club and claim the big prize. There was a lot of talk throughout the culture about the fact that in 82 years only four women had been nominated and not a single one won.

    Watch: Trailer For Danny Boyle's Stage Version Of 'Frankenstein'

    While the sorely overlooked "127 Hours" is up for six Oscars this weekend, we've resigned ourselves to the fact that it will likely walk away empty-handed, but that blow will definitely be softened as, in just a few weeks, Danny Boyle will be unveiling his stage version of "Frankenstein" and it looks fantastic.

    Was "The King's Speech" Made on a UK Gay Porn Set?

    In this very NSFW post on Queer Click, it is confirmed (via comparative photos... half of which involve gay sex, hence the NSFW) that "The King's Speech" used the same set as UK Naked Men, who filmed "at least a jerk-off if not a major rimming and man-fuck scene in the same room as this Oscar Award nominated piece of high cinema! Both film makers should make note of it in their promotional materials."
