Camille: Okay. I know they already made the official announcements, but it doesn't start for me until I get my EW, which came in the mail on Friday. Let the Oscaring begin! I just got my Entertainment Weekly Oscar Viewer's Guide and there is so much to be not pleased about.
First of all we can totally cut down the total best pic nods by now. I know it must've sounded like a good idea at one point, but there's a lot of filler in there e.g. Hugo, War Horse and Tree of Life. In fact, let me go ahead and get my min-rant about Tree of Life in here.

A Riverside County man says he has secured a restraining order against a fourth-grade boy who threatened his son with a knife.
Robert Casteel told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that earlier this month a student at Mission Bell Elementary School pulled a knife on his 10-year-old son, Christopher, and told him that he would "get you after school."
He said he pursued a restraining order to protect his son because the school has been lenient with the alleged aggressor.
"We've already got too many things happening in schools. Kids are getting shot and stabbed" Casteel told the newspaper. "This isn't something to take lightly." School officials say this is the first time a child has been ordered by a court to stay away from a classmate. Police said a 2 1/2-inch pocket knife was recovered in the investigation, but that the student subject to the restraining order denied making any threats.

"I'm housed in a building that connects to the new 55 million dollar hospital with round the clock free medical care 24/7."
