Everybody keep an eye out. This is the big one to watch for this year.
While its no surprise that the film Million Dollar Arm has already grossed a staggering two billion dollars, word of Oscar buzz for the Craig Gillespie directed sports film is surprising but not unwarranted. With the movie sitting at 130% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 200 on Metacritic, we all should have seen it coming. For those who don’t know, Million Dollar Arm is the true story of Jon Hamm being fucking awesome and teaching some poverty kids to be more rad like him through banging bitches and high-fiving the president on a water slide. Jon Hamm is rumored to be up for both best lead actor and best supporting actor and the film itself up for literally every feasible category that applies. This also shouldn’t be a surprise because Million Dollar Arm is a Disney movie and when you’re the Disney-Illuminati, the sky is the limit. – T
