Michelle sent just sent this over to me…
Benjamin Button was nominated for 13 awards this morning. Like I said a couple of weeks ago, Benjamin Button was a good movie sure …but great? Great might be an exaggeration. You don’t need to make love to it the way you do Slumdog Millionaire. Or even Frost/Nixon.
Oh and another thing about Benjamin Button?
He’s totally Forrest Gump. Have you seen this video?
Same writer too.
And you know the Academy LOVED Forrest Gump. Lost its sh-t over Forrest Gump. So Benjamin Button is definitely Goliath. And our Slumdog is the tenacious David!
