Budding Ventriloquist coverage of the 2011 Oscars continues with...
Best Supporting Actor Nominee with a Face that Belongs on a Ventriloquist Dummy
or, more simply:
Best Actor With a Supporting V Face
And the nominees are, from the youthful guys with hair group:
- John Hawkes from Winter's Bone. Great potential. Don't know of a dummy with immature facial hair on the current scene.
- Mark Ruffalo from The Kids are Alright. Absolutely refuse to consider a face out of my high school years. Doesn't he look like the guy all the girls said "Oh he's so cute, I want to play with his hair"? (Did I just hear a gagging noise? Or was that me making a gagging noise?)
- Christian Bale from the Fighter. I could have been that handsome if I'da tried. Yea, I could'a.
And from the actual talent that doesn't rely so much on hair group:
- Jeremy Renner from The Town. This Hurt Locker star has a seriously intense look. Is the world ready for a dummy with an intense look?
- Geoffrey Rush from The King's Speech. Animated face. Has worked with monkeys.
Or is it simulpost? I like that one. I think adding that to the lexicon for the Net is worthy of consideration. Right after webwaves.
Can you trademark a word?
It isn't really my male-pattern balding that makes me so obsessed with the "hair/acting success correlation."
Well, yes it is. I guess it's kind of a stupid and petty way to break down the nominees. I won't approach the other categories that way. At least not the actress categories.
