Why all this sudden hate to Renner?
Jeremy Renner is like the William Haines of the 21st century except that Haines was more charismatic and was out of the closet.

You can do it, Naomi! You're...
ONLY 10 EASY STEPS AWAY FROM OSCAR!
1.) Bankrupt small, independent distributor via massive Oscar campaign. Failing that, proceed to...
2.) Cash in King Kong residual checks to pay for FYC advertisements from Kinko's.
3.) To avoid getting sent straight to VOD, attach entire film as a "trailer" to another film people actually want to see. And then...
4.) Try to do it Lahti-style and win Academy Award for Best Short Film.
5.) Avoid telling a story that everyone already knows by adding exciting details and/or gratuitous editing.
6. Carefully and patiently weather the wrath of film critics/the royal family/the tabloids/Diana-maniacs for trying to add said details. (Good luck!)
7. Find all of the boxes with "August: Osage County" screeners and slip in self-made cam bootleg from premiere screening at Lowes...the hardware store.
(Not Loews, the movie theater -- too expensive!)
8. Trick octogenarian Oscar voters into thinking that you are, in fact, a real princess. (Hey, it worked on Eva Marie Saint!)
9. On Oscar night, have camera crews come to Nicole's house, Joan Crawford-style, so you can win and keep your day job.
The script has massive issues. And even if it didn't, he's going to be majorly upstaged by Bardem and Pitt, both of whom have juicy, crazy roles. The counselor is a passive character with little development. The Playlist, when they were "dream casting" the script, described the part as a cypher. That's being kind. I'd call that character a boring void.I just hope The Counselor is undeniable and Fassbender wins alongside Ridley.
I don't get the Renner hate either. Like most of their idols haven't had turkeys like HANSEL & GRETEL in their pasts? Please people. With that same bitchyness, I could hold BEWITCHED against Kidman and TAKING LIVES against Jolie and PROMETHEUS against Fassbender and so on, so on.
Its just stupid. (But yeah I'll admit that I didn't like BOURNE LEGACY but that wasn't his fault but *shocking concept!* the filmmakers instead.)
(Of course I don't have gaydar so I don't know how we know "know" Renner is a closet case? Except that one infamous set photo from AVENGERS I believe where ErikDean quipped "work it gurl!", which I must admit was hilarious.)
BREAKING NEWS: Man of Steel is a hit! We're getting more superhero movies! AW commits mass suicide.

Y'all better stop hating on Renner.
He was excellent in The Hurt Locker, fully deserved nomination there. The Town was a solid performance, not one of the top five of the year though.
