ugh. Seriously, the more I think about this movie the more I hate it. Yeah, great effects. Also, terrible story. Also, it's 4 years long.
Nobody doesn't love Quentin Tarintino. He's the Sara Lee of film-making.
Up in the Air
I definitely saw this movie. yep.
The Hurt Locker
Favorite movie from this year. This better (and probably will) win.
Precious: Based on the novel "Push" by Sapphire
I will only be happy if it is mentioned by its full name whenever mentioned.
Up is only the second animated film to be nominated for Best Picture.
I unfortunately missed this one, but I've heard very good things.
A Serious Man
Woot! Coen Brothers!
The Blind Side
really? REALLY? Was the academy just looking for a tenth movie to nominate?
My favorite movie of the year, until I saw The Hurt Locker
As long as The Blind Side and Avatar don't win I'll be happy.
Kathryn Bigelow, The Hurt Locker
Its not Avatar, so I'm happy.
James Cameron, Avatar
"MUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHH! I'm James Cameron! I made Avatar! It took ten years and lotsa money!! MUUUUUHHH!'
Jason Reitman, Up in the Air
This guy seems like a guy who would be cool to hang out with who also happens to make movies people like.
Quentin Tarantino, Inglourious Basterds
I'm so conflicted when it comes to Quentin Tarintino. He makes great movies, but he is also one of the most annoying people in the world. Watch any interview with him ever.
Lee Daniels, Precious: based on the novel "Push" by Sapphire
Best Adapted Screenplay:
An Education, Nick Hornby
oooh, Nick Hornby!
District 9, Neill Blomkamp and Terri Tatchell
Aliens and story! (unlike Avatar, which is all like "Aliens and look! the moss lights up when you step on it!"
Precious, Geoffrey Fletcher
Up in the Air, Jason Rietman and Sheldon Turner
I wish I had seen this.
In the Loop, Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Armando Iannucci and Tony Roche
I don't know anyone who actually saw this movie.
Best Original Screenplay:
THe Hurt Locker, Mark Boal
Inglorious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino
A Serious Man, Joel and Ethan Coen
Up, Bob Peterson and Pete Docter
The Messenger, Alessandro Camon and Oren Moverman
Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Princess and the Frog
The Secret of Kells
Since Up is the only one nominated for Best Picture, shouldn't that win? Unless you count the animation style, in which case Fantastic Mr. Fox might win.
