Why did Selma get a "Best Picture" nomination, but no nominations in the acting categories or Best Director category?  Kind of strange. 

I wonder if Selma is suffering because 12 Years a Slave cleaned up last year.

As for the historical biopics set in England, that type of thing is Oscar catnip.  British/historical things "seem good" because they seem like movies that smart, sophisticated people would like. 

Selma is the first film since 1936 to get a BP nomination without any other major category nomination.

Disgusting. 

Hopefully the SCOUTS takes the case, and that might just be the end of the debate in the country.

That won't be the best strategy - the SCOUTS have had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the world of tolerance toward gays.  If you want SSM, you won't want them to weigh in on it.

Well played, Cubmaster.

#s 4 and 5 are pretty great - 5 is outstanding (Shinning, the time machine toaster, and Nightmare Cafeteria).

I knew it was only a matter of time.

Doesn't it take a lot more time to think about and then type hatin' than it does to type hating?  This is like....double reverse folksy.

He held himself pretty well on the show until they started talking about gay marriage...then he slowly got lost in the absurdity of his own statements until Colbert changed the subject at a moment's notice.  Then he continued to do his best (despite some of the audience laughing at his movie.  Shame on them!)

America---where people are assumed to be too stupid to know that cigarettes are harmful unless big brother tells them they are.

So is "wait until marriage" not a part of conservative morals anymore?

Was it ever?   

Come on now. There are hundreds more examples, but:

Yes...and phillip was a king and not just a prince consort I suppose.
Alexander would be Alexander I & IV just like James II & VII I suppose...and that would be much too complicated.

What's wrong with Tyrone?

We're not sure if this will be King George VII or King George VIII either.

Charles has said that when he's coronated, he'll probably change his name to George.

Actually, Charles had issued a non-denial denial leaving open the possibility.  Still if he does decide to not be Charles III, George VII is the only logical choice.  I can't see him or any English monarch being brash enough to reign as King Arthur and being crowned King Philip II would bring up a thorny bit of history.

Prince William is pretty much stuck with being William V, as Philip, Arthur, and Louis are not really viable options.

Only time will tell if Prince George chooses to reign as King Alexander IV or not.

forgiveness please...who were Philip I and the first three Alexs?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2013/07/15/with-schweitzer-out-all-eyes-on-daines-and-untested-democrats-in-montana/

One candidate mentioned in this article is State Senator Kendall Van Dyk, a 33-year-old who defeated a Republican incumbent in 2010 by 4 votes.

Sounds like a good choice if Juneau/Lindeen don't pan out.

Not just an incumbent, the state GOP's gubernatorial nominee in 2008.

The momentum is his - none of the links work on his wikipedia!

Republican Christians are much better at spinning affairs as God's Will than Democrats or, well, Jews.  Sanford in a landslide.

lolz, considering i came out in 08.  there's a lot more to lol about this post though.

I'm guessing Alfie stopped posting because he realizes he can't win...

thank you statesrights.

My main question is, why do homosexuals want marriage?
Marriage was founded as a union holy in the sight of God...it has only been lately that the government has taken it.

If I were gay, I would be pushing for more rights to civil unions...marriage should be the last thing they want.

Sigh...world confuses.  Fire bad. Tree pretty.

I'm personally disgusted you called me 'Alfie' Cheesy

There's an alfie!  Go further back in that thread!
