Dear Eric Hirshberg.
Good afternoon you princes of Maine, you kings of New England, you stalkers of In the offing for today: Clint Eastwood fights Aliens and Predators [via <a href="http://www.toplessrobot.com/2011/06/more_badass_cowboys_vs_more_badass_aliens.php">ToplessRobot</a>] "My Little Serenity, a mashup of My Little Pony and Firefly.
Parody of The Hurt Locker based on <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=St-zfVVi0t4#t=3m35s">David Morse's scene</a>, with just a little additional intensity.
<a href="http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/web/06/01/cnet.hurt.locker.downloads/index.html"> The producers of Kathryn Bigelow's baby girl, The Hurt Locker, will teach you to pirate the Best Picture of the year. According to CNN, Voltage Pictures filed a formal copyright complaint against 5,000 nondescript pesty for illegally sharing the movie on peer-to-peer networks. They have the IP addresses. As far as the names, well...they're still figuring that part out. Voltage has asked the court to order anyone who downloaded the movie illegally to destroy all copies of "The Hurt Locker" on their computers and any other electronic device that they may have stored the film. Attorneys for Voltage wrote in the complaint that unless the court stops the people who pirate "The Hurt Locker," then Voltage will suffer "great and irreparable injury that cannot fully be compensated or measured in money." That's right. We want to see the streets littered with Macbooks and portable hard drives by tomorrow. It's the only way to purge yourselves of your torrent sins against humanity. <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/web/06/01/cnet.hurt.locker.downloads/index.html">[CNN]</a>.
If you'll remember, a couple of months ago, Hurt Locker producer Nicolas Chartier sent <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2010/02/hurt-locker-producer-forced-to-apologize-for-being-honest" target="_blank">an email</a> urging Academy members to vote for his movie and not Avatar, and even though that <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2010/02/surprise-that-hurt-locker-letter-really-wasnt-a-big-deal">wasn't really a big deal,</a> it ended up getting him disinvited from the Oscars.
Don't get me wrong, whenever I watch <a href="http://warmingglow.uproxx.com/2010/04/people-really-hate-oprah" target="_blank">Life</a>, I miss Sigourney Weaver's Planet Earth voice over tremendously.

A soldier from the squad in which Hurt Locker screenwriter Mark Boal was embedded announced today that he's suing the filmmakers, because he says the main character is based on him.
So last week, Hurt Locker producer Nicolas Chartier sent out an <a href="../2010/02/hurt-locker-producer-forced-to-apologize-for-being-honest" target="_blank">email</a> telling people to vote for his movie, along with a backhanded diss to Avatar.
I have a confession: I'm not really an insider.
Hurt Locker producer Nicolas Chartier sent out what seems like a pretty honest and logical email urging people to choose Hurt Locker as best picture, which the fun-hating shrivs at the academy have since made him apologize for.
<center The Hurt Locker and Avatar were both nominated for eight awards at the BAFTAS (the British Oscars, basically) last night, with The Hurt Locker taking home six, including awards for best picture, best director, best adapted screenplay; and Avatar two, for production design and visual effects.

(When Jeremy Renner goes down on a woman, he doesn't do it half way) My Google alert for "game-changer" went off another 100 times this morning, and surprisingly, one of the articles it pinged wasn't about James Cameron.
(I think what Party Dog was trying to say is that Kathryn Bigelow looks pretty good for 58.
That The Hurt Locker went home empty handed sort of sums up the joke that is the Golden Globe awards, but I'm going to cover them anyway because Dr.
Rotten Tomatoes recently gave out its <a href="http://www.rottentomatoes.com/guides/rtawards/" target="_blank">Golden Tomato awards</a> for the best reviewed movies of the year.
Everybody keeps sending me this <a href="http://niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2010-01-03T11%3A46%3A00-08%3A00&max-results=7">Nic Cage as Everyone site</a> so I assumed everyone had already seen it.
I'm not going to pretend I'm qualified to name this year's best movies (more qualified than most who make these lists, but still) or that I saw every movie, but people on the internet love lists, and I love money.
