WHO OUGHTTA WIN
Karla: Nobody will care, less will remember. Unless Adrian Brody actually mounts and penetrates the winner on stage.
Jay: You need to pick someone.
Karla: Frances McDormand, then.
Jay: Keeping with my proposed Batman Begins Oscar sweep, I'd be forced to pick Katie Holmes for this category. And since that's lunacy, my pick is: Cillian Murphy, Batman Begins.
Karla: This is getting creepy.
Jay: Go get your Cillian mask.
|Brokeback Mountain Critics who said that two well-muscled young cowboys tonguing one another's assholes wouldn't make for great gay porno are proven wrong in this touching, sexalicious drama about two young men who find themselves unable to resist the romantic setting of late-season cow herding and succumb to their unspoken passions.|
Capote Murder turns deadly in this pulse-pounding thriller set in the Kansas heartland in the year 3409.

WHO OUGHTTA WIN
Karla: Let me guess. Batman Begins, Best Picture.
Jay: What? No. That's retarded. You're retarded for saying that.
Karla: You weren't going to say Batman Begins? You were going to take the entire thing seriously and actually pick a film from the nominees?
Jay: Fuck yes.
Karla: Okay. Without looking at them, pick one. Don't look.
Karla: You have your choice written down right in front of you. You shouldn't have to think.
Jay: I know that. Broke...barn... Madrid...Crushed?
Karla: So you've chosen a random collection of words for Best Picture.
Jay: I feel the critics will support my decision.
Karla: It says Batman fucking Begins on your card, doesn't it?
Jay: No. What? That's just... gowmph [eats card]
Karla: I'll just dial 9 and 1 and leave the cell. I'll be downstairs at the bar.
Jay: [turning blue]
