EatSleepDraw at the 5th Annual Shorty Awards

Good luck to Lee and all of the other nominees at this year’s Shorty Awards. As a former nominee, I have a few friends in the mix this year, and I hope, whoever wins in the Tumblr of the Year category, their hand gets sore from giving out so many high-fives. — Ernie @ SFB

‘Lincoln’ leads Golden Globe movie nominations with 7 bids
AP: Civil War drama “Lincoln” leads the Golden Globes with 7 nominations, including best drama and best director, along with acting honors for Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones.
“Argo,” “Django Unchained,” “Life of Pi,” and “Zero Dark Thirty” are also nominated in the drama category.
Nominees for best musical or comedy are: “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Les Miserables,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,” and “Silver Linings Playbook.”

"Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" sounds like the name of a really good backpacker-rap mixtape, but no, it’s actually about salmon fishing in the Yemen. Somewhat of a surprise nod, but “Moonrise Kingdom” (or “Silver Linings Playbook”) should beat it easily. (BTW: Worth noting that Bill Murray got a nod for “Hyde Park on Hudson,” so DDL doesn’t hold a monopoly on the presidential beat.)

First off: Congrats to the creators of the “We Are the 99 Percent" Tumblr, who won a Shorty Award tonight for Microblog of the Year on Tumblr. (As I told them, I didn’t even write an acceptance speech because I knew they would win. Still had fun.) I got a chance to meet both of them tonight, and I admit to learning a ton from by just listening. Really cool to hear all that perspective in person. Too many encounters in the media are cut down to a soundbite. It’s nice to take a step back, listen and consider. That’s what I felt like I got to do tonight. It was great. (Also, Jeremy “Missing e” Cutler totally got robbed.) — Ernie @ SFB

The scale of obviousness of the key Oscar categories

  • kinda Natalie Portman won an Oscar for Best Actress in a role she was destined to win one for.
  • moreso Colin Firth won for Best Actor for being really good at stuttering through a role.
  • most ”The King’s Speech” won for Best Picture, but we think “The Social Network” wuz robbed.

Razzies: Of course “The Last Airbender” won big. We mean, really.
The big Razzie superstar: M. Night Shyamalan kept up with his track record of producing reliable Razzie “winners” and scored five trophies last night, including “Worst Picture,” for his widely-criticized live-action version of “The Last Airbender,” a popular Nickelodeon toon. Beyond the usual crapfest that might follow a film like this, it wins a little extra because the characters are largely Asian but the lead actors chosen to play them were mostly white – a decision made all the stranger because Shyamalan is Asian himself. source
