Like many other Oscar nerds, I woke up extra early to hear the nominations for the Academy Awards. As I looked through the list, I was a bit disappointed. I mean, the expected were nominated, but it just seemed so uneventful. No surprises. I feel a few were snubbed (Leo for J. Edgar, and Ryan for Ides) but it felt very choreographed. As of a few years ago, the academy went from it's regular 5 best pic nods and went back to the oldie tradition of 10. Being that I try to watch every film nominated, this makes my job so much harder. Here are is the list for best picture:
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Midnight In Paris
The Tree Of Life
I have 8 to go.
My guess now is that The Artist will win it. We'll see...What films do you want to see?
