A New Champion Of The Anti-Buttonist Movement Has Emerged: Defamer!

Three cheers for uber-blog Defamer for taking a brave stance and providing a thorough, well-thought out, and clever argument for how Benjamin Button will lose every single Academy Award for which it is nominated.

In a thrilling read entitled, “How ‘Benjamin Button’ Can Finish 0-For-13 On Oscar Night,” detailed exactly how this miraculous wretch “seize Oscar legend by the throat on Feb. 22 with 13 losses.”

The previous record for single-year Oscar futility is shared by 1977’s The Turning Point and 1985’s The Color Purple, both of which went 0-for-11. More recently, Miramax failed to capitalize on a single one of Gangs of New York‘s 10 nominations in 2002 — an accomplishment hinting that the Academy can willingly defy even the most art-directed, costume-designed, massive-budget prestige exercises of their respective years.

With their nomination by nomination account of a history-making goose egg, Defamer now joins Brian D. Johnson in the O.A.B.B.C. Hall of Fame.  Thank you, Defamer, and may the Academy indeed punish Button mercilessly.

Sincerely,

The O.A.B.B.C.
