Do you have room in your heart for another entry in the unstoppable Downfall meme? Here’s a good one: “Hitler Learns That Albert Brooks Was Not Nominated For Best Supporting Actor Oscar.” After trading year-end awards with Christopher Plummer for the last two months, Brooks was expected to cruise to an Oscar nomination for his performance as a vicious gangster in Drive, but his bid instead became the biggest and most inexplicable of snubs. While most cite Max Von Sydow’s turn in the soul-destroying Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close as the spoiler, Hitler directs his considerable ire on Moneyball’s Jonah Hill, dissecting Hill’s career in a hilariously apoplectic rant. “Don’t cry. At least he won the New York Film Critics Circle award.”
