Popcorn & Prejudice: A Movie Blog

So, who got woken up by Javier Bardem?

Nice work, if you can get it. On Oscar nomination day, the lucky nominees issue reaction statements to the press. Here are my favorites so far:
Josh Brolin (nominated for “MIlk”): “It feels surreal. I just got a call from Javier Bardem in Spain and he was flipping out and screaming. The reality is I got up at 5:55 here in Utah and looked at the clock and figured the nominations were announced and it didn’t happen. I said to myself, ‘That’s OK. I can deal with it.’ Then I realized there’s a one-hour time difference.”
Viola Davis (nominated for “Doubt”): “I’ve been screaming up and down the hallways of the Four Seasons, which probably doesn’t look so good.”

Andrew Stanton (nominated for “WALL*E”): “I’m down in L.A. in a hotel, getting room service. So it’s a little flashier than when I got the nomination for ‘Finding Nemo.’ I had to take out the trash after that.”
Mickey Rourke (nominated for “The Wrestler”) said simply, “I’m tickled pink!”
