Non-Conan news...

I would agree that all five films were overlooked during 2009, save for the fact that Matt Damon did get a Golden Globe nomination for his performance in The Informant!. I'm interested in seeing if the screenplay gets a nomination by the Academy Awards in the category of adapted screenplay. If the WGA nominations are any indication, and they usually are, then the screenplay probably won't be nominated. The five films in question are: Sunshine Cleaning, Funny People, Away We Go, Adventureland, and The Informant.

In Golden Globe news, here's this tidbit:
Ricky Gervais and the writers of the Golden Globe Awards show are likely giving the comedy gods extra thanks this week – they do that by ritual sacrifice of a Judd Apatow script – because the Jay/Conan dust-up is no doubt giving them reams of easy topical material. The Carpetbagger is asking: How long will it take Mr. Gervais to make a reference to the late-night show brouhaha on Sunday night?

The headline here on The Dagger read: "This is why we love college hoops." Couldn't have said it better myself.
