    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.

    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''.

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

    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.

    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.

    Right. That and Forrest Gump beating Pulp Fiction and Shawshank. Unbelievable.

    Forest Gump beat Shawshank Redemption.

    Gladiator beat out Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Chocolat, and Traffic. Almost Famous didn't even get a nod.

    And I dug Dances With Wolves.

    Avatar is quiet similar to Dances with Wolves in some ways, as well. Wouldn't surprise me if it won BP

    I would bet money that that is exactly what happens. Outside of the Golden Globes, Bigelow has won every major directing award including the Directors Guild Awards which have a better track record of predicting Oscar wins.

    Avatar is thankfully getting some backlash lately and I think the Academy will want to finally give Best Director to a woman.

    Obviously it could go either way, but I just wouldn't be so sure that she's not the front runner.


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

    Get ready to be disappointed then b/c I'm sure it's going to happen and James Cameron will declare himself King of the World again...even though he's a very average director and his movie is nothing more than a popcorn flick. It shouldn't be anywhere near the Oscars.

    I'd love to see Inglourious Basterds and The Hurt Locker win some awards, but other than Best Supporting Actor for Waltz I don't see either picture winning much. And at least Jeff Bridges will probably win an Oscar, that guy is awesome.
