    So, if you can remove one nominee in any category every year, and replace it with another, who will you choose?

    Replace Sandra Bullock with Abbie Cornish

    2010:  (Best Song) “You Haven’t Heard the Last of Me” (Burlesque) replaces the empty slot where they just didn;t decide to put anything.

    This would have been a terrific production number, Cher’s an Oscar winner so that would have been nice.   I love Randy Newman, but I assure you that whatever he wrote for TOY STORY 3 was not nearly as memorable as Cher’s big middle finger song.  (I have no idea what the movie this song is from was like, didn;t see it.) 

    Honestly, this Song category is the most embarrassing thing they’ve got right now.  If you’re going to have five slots, then fill them.  Unless there’s really nothing even halfway decent.  The problem is that the Golden Globes’ winner for Song is almost always a) no nominated and b) the best movie song of the year.

    2009–Zach Galifinakis in THE HANGOVER gave one of the great comic performances.  Matt Damon was fine in INVICTUS, but I don’t think anybody thinks it’s one of the highlights of his career.  For that matter, Stanley Tucci was good in THE LOVELY BONES, but how did that top Zachary Quinto in STAR TREK or Christian McKay in ME AND ORSON WELLES?

    2008–Dark Knight for Best Picture, (The Reader can go).  Uh, this is kind of the obvious one isn;t it?  and I liked THE READER.

    2007–MR. BROOKS for Original Screenplay over one of those filler nominees (this was JUNO vs MICHAEL CLAYTON, they deserved their nods)

    2006–Steve Carell in LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE swaps for Alan Arkin in the same movie.  I like Alan Arkin, but Carell was the guy who should have cleaned up on that one.
