Oscarbation ALERT!

There’s a lot of buzz going around the blogosphere about the new Jeff Bridges movie, Crazy Heart. In what appears to be marketed as being this year’s The Wrestler, we see the story of a washed-up country star who’s gone from relative stardom to obscurity. With the help of an attractive, masochistic journalist who probably likes to burn her thigh with a teapot, played by Maggie Gyllenhal (Oh! Now I get the joke!), he’ll be brought back into the limelight and probably die mid-piledriver. Sorry, The Dude, but I don’t buy it. This just looks like Pure Country with a lot more Metamucil and significantly less George Strait—oh, and better production, writing, acting, and directing. That’s not the point.

The point is, as long as this movie is released the same year that Moon came out—this year— I will only support Sam Rockwell for any Oscar or Golden Globe consideration.

Check out the trailers.

The real deal:
