If you are still nursing a grudge that Rise of the Planet of the Apes or Footloose or [insert your personal non-nominated favorite movie of 2011 here] didn't land an Oscar nod, here is some small consolation: Even Oscar voters feel your pain. "I honestly thought that Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was one of the best movies of the year," Rogen admitted yesterday. "It got no love from the awards whatsoever. I loved that fucking movie. It was great … I'm an Oscar voter. I voted for it." This raises the important follow-up question of how many Best Picture votes Ghost Protocol actually did get; Vulture will go with five?
