The Oscar nominations came out today.
W read the nominees to me, and we did a quick intake of all of the movies that we’ve seen this year.
Turns out that we’ve seen just about every movie that has garnered nominations. Except for Zero Dark Thirty. If you haven’t heard of Zero Dark Thirty, it’s a movie about the manhunt for Osama Bin Laden. The film is controversial because of its torture scenes.
W and I are turned off by the torture scenes. We are tree-hugging lesbians, for crying out loud.
This is a conversation that W and I had about Zero Dark Thirty this morning:
Me: I have absolutely no desire to see Zero Dark Thirty.
W: Me neither.
Me: Jessica Chastain just isn’t enough to get my butt in a seat at that movie.
W: I know.
Me: I mean, if it was Zero Dark Jennifer Aniston, then maybe.
W: There you go.
Me: Or, Zero Dark Sofia Vergara.
W: Now I would see that! And, they could torture me in a back room while I viewed it.
Me: I’m ok with that.
