Alert: one of the funniest men on this planet just scored an Academy Award nomination. That's right, Steve Carell is nominated for an Oscar for his role in Foxcatcher. Did you ever think the day would come when we'd see Carell at the award ceremony of all ceremonies? I couldn't be more thrilled for my man Steve.
