Tonight, most of the world will be watching True Detective, but that’s not the only thing going on, as the 86th annual Academy Awards will be on ABC. Being that the Oscars is probably the most anticipated of all the shallow and pedantic award shows, I’m sure that hipsters all over L.A. will be tuning in to see who wins what.
Now, as you may have already deduced, I am not a particularly devout fan of awards shows such as these, because they usually herald an off night for some of my favorite Sunday night television viewing. No, I don’t want to wait until next week to see what happens to Emily Thorn…errm, I mean my wife doesn’t want to wait until next week.
However, since it is in fact Oscars night, I think it only fair that we talk about the award for Best Actor. Of course, this year we seem to have the usual suspects, such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, and Matthew McConaughey. But who are the other two guys up for awards tonight? Let’s find out, shall we?
