Oscar Noms are in...

...and I haven't seen any of the Best Picture nominations. Actually, aside from maybe Benjamin Button, I have no desire to see any of them.

I'll catch Button on cable. I usually dig Brad Pitt movies. Problem with Benjamin Button is that I've seen this plot before. It was the plotline for the final season of Mork & Mindy. Now for the kids out there, Mork & Mindy was the show that launched Robin Williams career. Basically, it was about a woman named Mindy who runs into an alien named Mork, and makes him her new roommate. In the final season, Mork & Mindy had a kid, except it didn't start out as a kid. Old Jonathan Winters (he was in some Scooby-Doo cartoons, the heavy guy that did voices) popped out of Mork's giant egg, because Mork's species age backwards (or something like that, it's been awhile).

Like I said, it was the final season, and not in an ER way. More like in a Jump the Shark ratings dive way. So that's why I'm not in any hurry to relive that moment in my young life.

The Wrestler got robbed for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and Song. At least I saw that one (then again I am a wrestling fan).
