    Either Avatar or Hurt Locker will clean up. Probably Avatar. Ugh.

    No love for The Hangover? Boooooo!

    There were some heavyweight performances in the supporting roles category: Anna Kendrick in Up in the Air, Mo'Nique in Precious, and Waltz in Basterds were all top-notch. I haven't seen Crazy Heart yet but Bridges reviews are through the roof. Also, Streep and first-time nominee Bullock against first-time nominee/first-time-onscreen Gabourey Sidibe will be interesting.
  4. Curious to see who comes out on top in best picture and best director. Not going out on a limb to say it but I'd imagine the winner of best director will be one of the former couple Cameron (Avatar) or Bigelow (Hurt Locker) and then go on to win Best Picture. I have yet to see Hurt Locker but hoping to remedy that sooner than later. I think most of the drama of the show will fall in those two categories.

    Bridges for best actor, Bullock for best actress, Mo'Nique for supporting actress and Waltz for best supporting actor seem like slam dunks to me.

    Jeff Bridges was terrific. I'm not sure Maggie Gyllenhaal, who was good, but not great, deserved that nomination. I'm also not sure that Julianne Moore, who was a likely nominee in that category, deserved the nomination either.

    Only one I've seen is Hurt Locker. Only other ones I'd consider watching is Basterds and Up in the Air. The others? Meh. No thanks.

  9. The Blind Side was well done also.

    I've seen Avatar, Up in the Air, Up, Basterds, District 9. Only other one I want to see is Hurt Locker.

    They just don't interest me. At all.

    District 9 is overrated, but Up is pretty damned awesome.

    The Fabulous Mr. Fox could have stood to get a best picture nomination, as well
