I'm shocked regarding Billy's nomination to be honest...

If it were anyone from Pippin I think it would have to be Orion Griffiths who also would win the best thighs category.

I was actually happy Billy Magnussen was nominated. I thought he was very very funny in the role of Spike.

i think Cory Michael Smith should get special recognition for Best Male Equipment... it certainly blessed us with its appearance in Tiffanys!

Billy's performance was actually quite phenomenal. The scene where he replays the Entourage audition was absolutely brilliant and he's consistently funny throughout and certainly embraces his character.

Chicago should get an award for the worst abs.

It's really tricky to play dumb and stupid, and many actors would've taken it differently. Billy's approach is very smart and careful, and worth the recognition!

What? Alan Cumming is snubbed again? I thought he was a sure thing for a win in this category for the Lady Macbeth bathtub and bed scenes.

This category is biased. I'm rooting for the underdog.

Benjamin Walker's butt crack? When I saw it it was full ass. Did something change?

When I saw it, he pulled those drawers up pretty quickly. Just a few weeks before the divorce announcement. Maybe that's why .

Everyone on these boards always mentions Smith's full frontal scene in Tiffany's, but I haven't read a lot about Orsini's in The Nance... was it not as impressive?

Smith gets best frontal below the belt award. Orsini gets best everything else by a mile.
(Also loved Orsini's whole performance so I might be biased.)

I shocked that folks are displaying pics. And my the sexism. Women have abs too.

It could be a blocking issue that plagues Orsini, since I was on the side of the house that only got glorious ass, whereas those other people were seeing what I never did. That could hurt him when it comes to voters, unless they put all the voters on the right side of the house.
Now t/d/b/a haterobics on here.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but Jonny Orsini's endowment is average-- which sitting on the right side of the house will give you a chance to confirm. Since everything else about him is way, way above average, why belittle him that small issue...

Oy, enough with the bad puns...
