Transformers 2 is This Year's Norbit

The 82nd Academy Award nominations are out and we get a few juicy nominations. Avatar and District 9 have been nominated for best picture, of course, but here's the shocker: We will now be required to say "the Oscar-Nominated Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."

That's right, the Michael Bay film is getting a nod for "Best Sound Editing", which is kind of like getting an award for being the loudest kid in the room. Whether you loved or hated the flick, this just doesn't sound right. This is right up there with "the Oscar-Nominated Norbit" which was nominated in 2008 for "Best Make-up."

This will add to Bay's already massive ego. Let's collectively take three steps back as Michael Bay's noggin expands, precariously tottering on his skinny little neck.

Here are the geek-worthy rundowns:
  • Avatar: 9 nominations for Best Picture, Director, Art Direction, Cinematography, Editing, Original Music Score, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Visual Effects.
  • District 9: 4 nominations for Best Picture, Adapted Screenplay, Editing and Visual Effects.
  • Star Trek: 4 nominations for Best Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, Makeup and Visual Effects.
  • Sherlock Holmes: 3 nominations for Best Art Direction, Original Music Score, Sound Mixing.
  • Fantastic Mr. Fox: 1 nomination for Best Animated Feature Film.
  • Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: 1 nomination for Best Sound Mixing.
UPDATE:Transformers has been nominated for seven Razzies, the awards for worst films of the year, so maybe it'll help offset Bay's ego to the size of a small moon.

What do you think of the Oscar nominations this year? Let us know in the comments!

  1. "Oscar-winning film Norbit" sounds like a nightmare I had once. Frankly, I think if you try hard enough, any film can get nominated for something.

  2. Hi,

    I'm just browsing sites for the kids of Haiti.

    I'm at this site for a non-profit group that is dedicated to
    creating an oppurunity for the kids in haiti. If anyone wants to help then do so here:

    [url=http://universallearningcentre.org]Donate to Haiti[/url] or Help Haiti

    They give kids in Haiti a positive learning environment.

    Please check them out, they're a real cause.

    It would be awesome if you could help us

  3. The funny thing about this spam is how they spelled "opportunity", and the first line on the actual website is about how the organization is dedicated to promoting literacy. Maybe they should start with their own staff.
