Okay, so for those of you who don't know the Academy Awards are on tomorrow night on ABC. The Academy Awards are the only awards show I have ever watched. In the past I have watched the whole show from start to finish. Lately I think it drags on too long and the hosts are never that great. I have the show on but don't sit down and watch the whole ceremony like I have in the past. I don't know how many people in the MGOBlog universe are interested in the Academy Awards, but for those that are, I am interested in your pick for best picture. Here are the nominees:
The Blind Side
A Serious Man
Avatar(Dances with Smurfs)
Up in the Air
The Hurt Locker
I am just going to try to ignore the fact that expanding the best picture category this year to ten nominees is a joke. The consensus seems to be that the race has come down to Avatar(Dances with Smurfs) directed by James Cameron and The Hurt Locker directed by Cameron's ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow. My pick: The Hurt Locker. I think Bigelow has put together an amazing movie that showcases some of the crazy things going on over in Iraq. The film may not have a conventional plot structure by the great performances by everyone in the cast especially Jeremy Renner make this a must see movie.
p.s. Bigelow still looks pretty attractive for her age. Just sayin.
