I'll be at your door when there's something worth running for...

So I'm watching the Film Independent Spirit Awards (reaired on AMC), and host Rainn Wilson is doing the intro and talking about how they are "going green" this year (which I think is silly because they already do the show in a tend on the beach, how much greener can you get?) but he was talking about the "no waste" policy and said:

"In honor of this show's 'zero waste' policy, Sienna Miller has graciously offered to finish everyone's drinks tonight."

To which she did a hilarious "I'm shocked but think that's really funny" face and raised her glass.


[EDIT: Another AMAZING line, I just had to post it. Oh Rainn Wilson.

"To present the award for Best Director, it is my pleasure to introduce a past Spirit Award winner and this year's honorary chair. He is the Spanish star of the brilliant No Country For Old Men, he is charming, ruggedly handsome, talented, speaks 5 languages, I want to fuck him SO HARD! Javiar Bardem."

To which Javiar responded, "Alright. We've got a deal."]

Also, Steve Zahn was the only white guy nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category, which means (more importantly) that the other 4 nominees are minorities.

I came across a disturbing statistic today in my meanderings around the internet that only 19 black actors and actresses have ever been nominated for Best Actor or Best Actress Oscars. Halle Berry was the first black actress to win in 2001 (out of the 7 ever nominated).

It's sad and disappointing. However, there have still only been 3 women ever nominated for Best Director (none have won), so there's that too.

I'm not going anywhere with this, so I'll stop...
