Can the Wasilla Grifter possibly get another five minutes added to her expired fifteen minutes of infamy? Well, yes, of course. Besides, her fifteen minutes actually turned out to be three-and-a-half years, which is pretty substantial for an aging snowbilly grandma whose one and only talent was being less physically repulsive than John McCain, back in 2008. Anyway, that awful feature-length commercial for Palin’s nonexistent presidential campaign, Undefeated, has been nominated for an Academy Award (TM) … and not even in the expected categories of Animated Feature Film or Hilarious Costume Design. UPDATE FROM SOMEONE WHO KNOWS ABOUT MOVIES: Ha, thank Christ, it’s a different movie also called the same thing, Undefeated. Whew.
But here’s the rest of the post, anyway, for the lulz:
Here it is, fresh from Chris Dodd’s favorite evil corporate bullshit machine, the Motion Picture Lobbyists of America:
• “Hell and Back Again” Danfung Dennis and Mike Lerner
• “If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front” Marshall Curry and Sam Cullman
• “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory” Charles Ferguson and Audrey Marrs
• “Pina” Wim Wenders and Gian-Piero Ringel
• “Undefeated” TJ Martin, Dan Lindsay and Richard Middlemas
Hell and Back Again and Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory are both much better names for a Sarah Palin documentary. The Thing and They Live and Halloween and pretty much any John Carpenter movie also has a better title for a Sarah Palin documentary.
Let’s hope she attends the televised awards program, and that the “current version of Chris Farley” throws up on her hair. [Movieline]
