I'm not even going to waste your time explaining why Mamma Mia! will not be winning this bracket. It really just comes down to this:
Singing good & acting mediocre < Singing bad & acting your goddamn heart out
I say "mediocre," but to be fair, it takes a LOT of commitment to pull off what Meryl does in Mamma Mia. Since she did do a hell of a job making this film as accessible and successful as it was, let's have A Moment Of Abba to pay respect to Meryl's genuinely remarkable joie de vivre. The real Oscar here goes to Meryl's jump-splits at 1:21.
It truly pains me that we live in a world where FLORENCE GODDAMN JENKINS has made it to the Great Eight but THE MOTHERFUCKING DEER HUNTER has not, but what can I say, life is chaos and THIS IS #MADNESS.
