Just in time for the Oscars, a Mitt Romney parody of “The Artist”

The Chris Matthews Show has a pretty interesting take on Romney’s campaign, based on this amusing parody of the perceived Oscars frontrunner. The silence from the audience is more deafening than Mitt’s own silence. Chew on this, internet. (ht Charlie Warzel of InTheCapital

The world’s top film honors are in jeopardy of losing their status as the second most-watched TV event in the United States behind professional football’s Super Bowl if they can’t lure more than 40 million viewers, which will be difficult given that silent movie ‘The Artist’ is this year’s big picture.
A Reuters article talking about this year’s Oscars, which finds itself in the weird position of likely being the second-most-watched awards show of the year, after the Grammys got a massive ratings boost in the wake of Whitney Houston’s death earlier this month. Whaddya mean there’s no mainstream appeal in silent movies?

Our four favorite surprises from today’s Oscar nominations

  • one The amazing silent film “The Artist” didn’t top the nomination list — “Hugo” had one more, despite the fact it was shut out of the acting categories.
  • two “The Tree of Life” must’ve confused the Academy: A strange message, “Nominees to be determined,” accompanies its Best Picture nomination.
  • three Maybe not a huge surprise, but Pixar’s “Cars 2” is the first Pixar flick that didn’t get a single nomination for an Oscar. Perhaps it’s because it sucked? Yeah, probably.
  • four And a surprise going the other way: Melissa McCarthy got an acting nomination for “Bridesmaids,” her breakout role. The question is, will she win? source
