Seth Rogen predicted '50/50' Oscar snub: 'I know for a fact some people are appalled by the movie'

Oscar must be missing his funny bone. Unless you count Shakespeare in Love or Chicago, there really hasn’t been a bona fide comedy that’s won Best Picture since Annie Hall, 34 years ago. Yesterday when the Academy announced this year’s nominees, it tellingly avoided giving comedy blockbuster Bridesmaids that 10th Best Picture slot in favor of a Supporting Actress nod for Melissa McCarthy and one for Original Screenplay, while the touching, poignant, critically adored 50/50 was left completely shut out. Actually, 50/50′s producer-star Seth Rogen predicted just such a snub when his film’s Oscar potential was first discussed back in September. »
