Which One of These is Not Like the Other?

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominations for the Golden Globes today and . . . well, you figure it out.


BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A MOTION PICTURE
1. TOM CRUISE – TROPIC THUNDER2. ROBERT DOWNEY JR. –TROPIC THUNDER3. RALPH FIENNES – THE DUCHESS4. PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN – DOUBT5. HEATH LEDGER – THE DARK KNIGHT



Let's see. Robert Downey, Jr. is an award winning actor. Ralph Fiennes is an award winning actor. Philip Seymour Hoffman is an award winning actor. Heath Ledger is an award winning actor. Tom Cruise is . . . well, Barbara Walters says he's real fascinating! Honestly. Downey Jr., Fiennes, Hoffman and Ledger are all well respected, serious thespians. Tommy is too busy fighting body thetans to be a serious thespian!

I want to know who Tommy paid in Hollywood because this shit has got to be a joke. Okay, I didn't see Tropic Thunder but I watched Tommy's little cameo online, like everyone else. I didn't think it was that funny. What's so funny about watching Jerry Maguire ten years later and a hundred pounds heavier?

If the old rule of thumb holds out, Tommy and Robert Downey Jr. will cancel each other out (for being nominated for the same film), so that will leave Hoffman, Fiennes and Ledger.

I'm going to put my money on Ledger, who turned in a brilliant performance as a brilliant, sociopathic, demented Joker. A win for him would be well deserved.
