I'm not sure on this, I'll have to get one of my researchers to pull the stat for me, but this may be the first real, legitimate news story that I've ever broken here at WNTE.
So has anyone else noticed that all but ONE of the men nominated for Best Actor have a first name that starts with "J"? No, you haven't, because I broke the story first!
Actor in a Leading Role
Javier Bardem, Biutiful
Jeff Bridges, True Grit
Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
Colin Firth, The King's Speech
James Franco, 127 Hours
Why are the non-J actors being all but boxed out of this year's oscar nods? What evil figure, or figures lurks at the heart of this nasty form of racism that most of us thought was dead?
This leads me to another possible breaking news story, why am I the first to report this controversy? Why have you been so massively failed by much bigger newsertainment outlets than this rickety, humble old blog? Stay tuned as I try to blow the lid off of this one as well.
