Even though I loved Bridesmaids and Melissa McCarthy I was a little bit surprised to see her get an Oscar nomination, she was very good in the film but would you call it Oscar worthy?
Yep. People seem to forget too that Depp was nominated for the 1st Pirates movie.
However i think the Oscars bring this on themselves. They usually completely ignore Sci Fi, Comedy & Horror no matter how good it is. So it comes as a surprise when someone is nominated.
