Yeah, she was nominated for an Oscar for the first one. And I don't think she should receive one for this one.

Yes, the Academy really loves their mainstays.

I think her nomination is pretty damaging to their credibility; it further fuels the notion that the award show isn't as concerned with honoring good film as it is with how it presents itself. This is not a good film, and it is not a good performance.

One friend referred to the Oscars as being nothing but "politics".  With nominations like this and the one for Norbit, I feel she's right.  It doesn't matter how well someone performed or how great a make-up job was if it's in a movie that's bad.  You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear.

No, I like the way the Oscars nominated Norbit, last year's Poseidon (or 2 years), and Surf's Up. I'm happy Happy Feet won instead of the stupid Cars...

Well, Old Betsy 2 won an oscar for best costume design.  I have to admit I was impressed with the costumes in this picture.  However, it was just one of many things done well in a movie that went so wrong. . . .
