A little while ago Hollis Mulwray declared that Argo‘s Alan Arkin was SAG-nominated for Best Supporting Actor because he’s become “the pet of the Oscar geezers.” I really like that phrase and I hope it sticks to the wall. For years and perhaps decades to come this or that over-65 favorite can be jovially referred to as “a pet of the Oscar geezers.” This is coinage, what we all live for. Some day Mulwray will talk to a girl in a Pavillions aisle or at a bar and he can say “I’m actually the ‘pet of the Oscar geezers’ guy…yeah, it was me.”
