RANT OR RAVE?: Channing Tatum Gets Hosed by the Oscars

Here's the RANT (but stick around cuz the rave comes later)...If you live in the US, I'm sure you've seen that phone commercial where the Dad gets his kids awesome gifts for Christmas and he just gets a tie or something completely mundane in return. Then he tells his kids that he "got hosed".

Well that's kind of what happened to Channing this morning. He gave us the awesome performance in A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints and the Oscars gave him nada, zilch, no love at all. Although there has been positive buzz around his gritty, dramatic performance as Antonio in A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, his name was not on the list this morning when the Oscar nominations were announced by former Oscar nominee Salma Hayek. Shame on them.

In case you care who did get nominated, feel free to take a look at the nominee list on the Oscar site.

OK now here's the RAVE...Channing may not have won a nomination this year, but don't fret. Anyone who can take themselves from modeling, to commercials, to lead movie roles in just a few years, is a very driven and focused individual. I truly believe he has many more years of strong roles that eventually will get the attention of the Oscar community. Regardless of what the Oscars say, he has won my award for Sexiest Actor of the Century. Who needs an Oscar when you have that, right? :-)

The Oscars will air on February 25, 2007 on ABC and they are hosted this year by the People's Choice winner for Talk-Show Host and Favorite Female Star, Ellen Degeneres.

Oh yea, and keep your fingers crossed for Channing to win his nomination for Best Supporting Male for A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints at the 2007 Independent Spirit Awards on February 24, 2007.
