Shun, Shag, Or Marry: Oscar Nominee Edition
Yes, today is Groundhog’s Day, and according to that little bastard Phil, it’s going to be a long winter, but the silver lining is that we have The Academy Awards to look forward to. Oscar noms are finally in! Woohoo! While most of the world has started their betting pools about who will win the coveted Oscar for best pic, here at The Frisky, we have been hard at work voting on which nominees we would shun, shag, or marry. After the jump, our picks.
Best Actor in a Leading Role:
Shun: I’m sure Morgan Freeman is very compelling in “Invictus,” but I can’t forget about him dating his step-granddaughter in real life. Dealbreaker.
Shag: I would join the mile high club with George Clooney any day, but this dude is a bachelor for life in “Up in the Air.” Also, I would never mind inviting a hot, army officer like Jeremy Renner from “The Hurt Locker” into my bed.
Marry: I would take Colin Firth as my hubby. Even though he plays a gay man in “A Single Man,” he’s always Mr. Darcy to me. I’d also tie the knot with Jeff Bridges because he plays guitar in “Crazy Heart.” He could serenade me forever.
Best Actress in a Leading Role:
Shun: Even though I admire Gabourey Sidibe in “Precious,” I’d have to shun her based on the fact that she has two kids and I’m not ready yet.
Shag: Carey Mulligan is shaggable in “An Education,” and Tolstoy seems to enjoy Helen Mirren in “The Last Station.”
Marry: I call marriage dibs on Meryl Streep in “Julie & Julia.” Home cooked-meals every day! Also, I could spend my life with Sandra Bullock in “The Blind Side.” Now that’s a woman with character.
Best Supporting Actor:
Shun: Stanley Tucci as a murderer in “The Lovely Bones”? Hell no. I’ll also have to shun Cristoph Waltz in “Inglourious Basterds” on the grounds that he is in a Nazi uniform. Not sexy.
Shag: I think I would let Matt Damon in “Invictus” score with me. Rugby players = hot. I also wouldn’t mind taking off Woody Harrelson’s uniform in “The Messenger,” but his character has an alcohol problem, so I think it’s best that we just have a fling.
Marry: Even though he’s old, I would say “I do” to Christopher Plummer as Tolstoy in “The Last Station.” Come on … it’s freaking Tolstoy!
Best Supporting Actress:
Shun: I’d have to shun Mo’Nique in “Precious.” I could never be in an abusive relationship.
Shag: Penelope Cruz is just plain hot as a mistress in “Nine” but definitely not the marrying type. Also, Vera Farmiga is up for a no-strings-attached affair in “Up in the Air.”
Marry: I’d marry Maggie Gyllenhaal in “Crazy Heart” because she’s the kind of woman who makes you want to change your life. I also wouldn’t mind walking down the aisle with Anna Kendrick from “Up in the Air” because she seems like she’d make a great travel buddy. [Oscar]
