I share your displeasure about Labouf, but in my books he is equally matched in the annoying bitch factor by one John William Ferrel who has annoyed the heck out of me every time other than when he's not playing Ron Burgundy.
Some of my favorites, in no order is preference are:
1. The Vergecast (tech, culture, all around hipster trash talk, etc.)
2. Wait Wait Don't Tell Me... An NPR News Quiz (Talk, comedy, quiz, gameshow)

5. Autoblog Podcast (automotive news and reviews)
6. This Week in Windows Windows Weekly (All about Microsoft products of all flavors)
You do have a point, but as a community intimately familiar with most things it takes to bring a quality film to the screen, I think the general membership's votes are indicative of what the Academy feels about the crop of films that year.

Like I said, I am really surprised Bill O resisted pandering to his Fox News junkies by asking Obama to show his birth certificate, and ask him why he hates America. Was this the...
That stupid stunt Fox News and Bill O'Reilly pulled hijacking the Super Bowl Pregame show shows what a bunch of desperate low-life jerkoffs they are, that they wouldn't let me enjoy a football game without bringing up all the tired political talking points.
I am surprised they resisted the temptation to ask Obama to show his original birth certificate.
Having watched the complete dominance of the Seahawks defense over the Broncos, and seeing Roger Goodell in the stands, the single touchdown that Denver scored looks more like a mercy giveaway phoned in by the Commissioner, so that Payton won't be embarrassed in a 50-0 shutdown. That touchdown looked like the Seahawks stepped off the throttle a bit so as to not be accused of running up the score and damaging the Superbowl legacy with a shutdown of epic proportions against...
Haven't seen the trailer, and I try to avoid all trailers for all shows in general - for they do spoil the surprise too much.Reading your posts, I had a thought pop into my head.
