So what are your thoughts about today's nominations? I'm looking for honest opinions of this years nominated films, not "I hate award shows" rants.
I'll be watching "The Hurt Locker" finally tonight, and "District 9" tomorrow. SWMBO and I generally go on a theater-going tear this time of year and see as many nominees as possible before the show. It seems that we're WAY behind this year.
I've been excited to see "Crazy Heart" for a while now, and if the reviews I've read of "Precious" are any indication, that's going to make me wish I'd just stabbed my eyes out with a pencil.
I really enjoyed "Avatar", especially in 3-D but if it actually wins the Best Picture award I'll be pretty disappointed. I'll concede it a Director win for the way Cameron put it all together, but the paper thin screenplay and plot take too much away for it to be a realistic contender in my humble opinion.
