Michael B Jordan learns the game

Check out Michael B Jordan at the Governors Awards this weekend. As previously mentioned in the Angelina Jolie post, the event honours new recipients of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award but also is an opportunity for contenders to get some face time in with Academy members, especially critical before nominations are considered. The first step is to get your name on the ballot. Oh, hi, Matthew McConaughey. Early on in the year, Fruitvale had a chance. Jordan still does have an outside chance. And this can only help. Charming young man, making the rounds, learning the game. It cannot hurt. If not this time, for a nomination, than at least it's showing producers he's willing to play. Goes a long way these days.
PS. Please welcome Michael B Jordan to the Five List. He replaces Anthony Mackie, for obvious reasons.
