Oscars ‘08 – Picks Based On “Doability”
In response to Hollywood Elsewhere’s post (also see New York’s article) on Ellen Page‘s lackluster doability resulting in a projected Oscar loss, I will be rating the doable factor of the five Best Picture Nominees 2 hours prior to award being given away.
The Best Picture Nominees:
Atonement, Juno, Michael Clayton, No Country For Old Men, There Will Be Blood
Atonement features a very doable Keira Knightley. I mean she lacks curves and has a face that could easily play Natalie Portman‘s doppleganger. But still she’s very doable. James Mcavoy is doable (maybe… not sure).
Doable Factor: 8/10
Some people say that Ellen Page isn’t identifiable with the word fertile. I have to disagree. She is fertile and doable in a way that a teenager would find a woman capable of bearing a child. Michael Cera‘s doability is definitley questionable.
Doable Factor: 6/10
Michael Clayton is about big industry, law firms, and farmers. It stars George Clooney. What more do I have to say?
Doable Factor: 9/10
No Country For Old Men
The movie has some Latin flavor and some good old dark-haired mustached white boy.
Doable Factor: 7/10
There Will Be Blood
With the only real women being Ellen Page and Keira Knightley I’ve been playing a switch hitter throughout this post. Daniel Day-Lewis continues along this path. In my book he’s doable and very capable of battling George Clooney for top male billing.
Also, I bet most women would find his accent and gruff portrayal appealing. Not to mention the oil and oil wells represent one phallic reference after the other.
Doable Factor: 8.5/10
Michael Clayton should win Best Picture tonight! I find the likelihood of this actually happening a little suspect and doability having absolutely no merit in Oscar probability.
Look for No Country For Old Men to take the cake tonight (Javier Bardem has already won).
