    I forgot they were going with 10 movies for BP. I am surprised to see District 9 in there.

    I think Avatar is going to win everything it is nominated for. I just hope it doesn't win BP.

    District 9 was my favorite movie of the year, so I LOVE the fact that is there.

    I don't have a problem with it being there, I just thought the last half was lame. They went from a solid 8 in my book to a 6 based on the excessive action of the last half.

    You know what the single most awesome thing about these nominations is? Up, what is basically a children's movie, is nominated for Best Picture, Original Screenplay, Sound Editing, and Original Score. An animated kids movie has been nominated for two very big Oscars. So awesome.


    And despite the fact that I really liked a number of the movies nominated for Best Picture, and while I don't remotely expect it to win, I will happily stand up and cheer if it does. I think it would be so cool to see that happen.

    I in the other hand thought it was fantastic and gave the movie kind of a heart.


    ....but am really upset that Viggo Mortenssen did not get nominated for ''The Road''.

    If ****ing Avatar wins Best Picture, that will be one of the worst Oscar votes ever.

    Other than that and Christoph Waltz winning Best Supporting Actor, I have no strong feelings.

    I can't believe Mo'Nique could be an oscar winner. I remember when she was just a bad stand up comic

    I would like to Sandra Bullock win Best Actress. I haven't seen any of the other nominations for that category so I won't say she deserves it, but it seems like her entire career she chosen bad movies and she's been considered a bad actress. I didn't expect much from The Blind Side but I was blown away.

    Haven't seen An Education, Precious, or Up but here's how I'd rank the rest for BP

    1. Up in the Air
    2. Inglourious Basterds
    3. The Hurt Locker
    4. A Serious Man
    5. The Blind Side/District 9
    7. Avatar

    I'll be rooting for Up in the Air in all its nominated categories.

    The 10 BP nomination thing is just a bad idea. Sure it allows for movies like Up and District 9 to get recognized in a way that they normally wouldn't be able to, but they have NO chance of winning. So what's the point?


    Whit or whit-out you. Whit or whit-ooooooooout you.

    Dances With Wolves beat freaking Goodfellas...Not much else compares to that. Well, some other snubs in the earlier days, but still.

    What I wouldn't give to see Kathryn Bigelow defeat her ex for best director. Not going to happen, but would still be great.

    Best Picture thoughts:
    -Avatar: Haven't seen it yet.
    -The Blide Side: Enjoyed it, was sappy, but should not win this award.
    -District 9: One of the more overrated movies recently. Was pretty good.
    -An Education: Haven't seen it.
    -The Hurt Locker: Loved it.
    -Inglourious Basterds: Loved it, but probably doesn't have a chance to win.
    -Precious: Heard it was great, can't wait to see it.
    -A Serious Man: Should be great based on the Coen's being a part of this movie. I've got to see it soon.
    -Up: Loved it.
    -Up In The Air: Loved it.

    It would be kind of funny If Bullock won best actress in the same year she started in probably one of the worst movies of all time.

    I'll copy Tragedy.

    -Avatar: **** this movie. It's going to win and I hate it.
    -The Blide Side: Average movie. Shouldn't be here though.
    -District 9: I really enjoyed this. It won't win and it probably shouldn't.
    -An Education: Haven't seen it.
    -The Hurt Locker: Loved it. This or Up In The Air are my hopefuls.
    -Inglourious Basterds: Didn't love it as much as everyone else, but it deserves the nomination.
    -Precious: I really don't seem interested in this film for some reason.
    -A Serious Man: Haven't seen it.
    -Up: Loved it. Won't win, of course.. But it was one of the best animations ever.
    -Up In The Air: Loved it. This or The Hurt Locker.. If not, I really don't care.
