Technical Rage Delay

January 16th, 2015

Oscar nominations came out yesterday morning, but there will be a delay in our list and reactions because of rage. I've been working at The Numbers for 12 years and I've been doing the Awards Season reports for almost as long. (The format we use today didn't really start till 2006.) The Oscar nominations for this year are the worst I've seen. I literally can't get through a single category without getting angry and walking away from my computer. Because of that, I'm going to take a break from that and work on the regular columns while I calm down, because otherwise the column will degenerate into a string of expletives before I get past the Best Director list. Look for our full list of nominees and hopefully calmer reactions Saturday morning.
