Could “Bridesmaids” Win An Oscar?

Judd Apatow did an interview with Variety, and it’s basically about how hard comedies are shafted during awards seasons. He says there’s this big misconception that comedies are much easier to make than dramas or action flicks, so comedies rarely, if ever, get nominated for big awards, and I agree. I think it’s sad that well-made comedic films with great scripts and solid acting don’t get more recognition, but this year might be different. This year, “Bridesmaids” could win the Academy Award for Best Picture. Read more…

Funny or Die’s drunk retelling of “The Night Before Christmas” is like no other Christmas tale you’ve heard. Drunk Allan McLeod recites the poem while Ryan Gosling, Jim Carrey and Eva Mendes attempt to act it out. It looks like someone dipped into the Christmas brandy early. [Funny or Die]

Spanish Town Opts To Stay Smurf Blue

The small Spanish town of Juzcar has opted to keep itself Smurf blue, because it’s brought in more tourists, and tourist dollars, since the town was painted the color last year. Producers for the Smurf film paid the town to paint itself the bright blue color, and used Juzcar in the live action Smurfs film. When the production company offered to paint the town’s buildings back to their original colors, the town refused, noting that they’ve built a mini-industry around their new Smurfy lifestyle. According to the Independent, “The village has eagerly embraced its new role, holding events such as a Smurf moonlight fun run, Smurf painting competitions and permanently running Smurf trade fairs. There are even Smurf-themed weddings to keep fans of the squeaky little blue folk coming.” [The Independent]

Here at The Frisky’s offices, one of the most hotly anticipated books of 2011 is Agorafabulous!: Dispatches From My Bedroom, by the comedienne and all-around-awesome-lady Sara Benincasa. I love this girl for her balls-out honesty regarding her mental health struggles with agoraphobia and anxiety. Agorafabulous! is based on Sara’s one-woman show of the same name, which recounts how vicious panic attacks created a fear of the outside world, to the point where she refused to leave her college dorm room. In this cartoon, Sara explains all about anxiety attacks, the “flight or fight” response, and why you shouldn’t shop at Whole Foods. As someone who has suffered from panic attacks from age 15 onwards, I could have used an explanation like this back when I was hyperventilating and didn’t know what the eff was going on!
