I think the majority of films nominated for Best Picture are pretty average to bad. Liked ARGO and DJANGO. As I've been saying for a while, THE MASTER, MAGIC MIKE, and LOOPER should have been nominated over junk like LES MISERABLES, LIFE OF PI, and even LINCOLN.

Looper wasn't that good.
the final act is a mess, I'll give you that, but overall the screenplay and writing for it was far more original and daring than anything nominated for BP.

MAGIC MIKE has more emotion and character development and stakes than any of those movies. People just think it's a chick flick about abs and butts and dicks but it isn't.

The Master was better than Life of Pi ... I'll give you that. But I wasn't really that impressed with it as a whole ... it felt (like Lincoln) like pure Oscar-bait.
I found it to be a challenging and unsettling movie that left me not knowing what to think. But that's just me, I can also see why people would view it as Oscar bait as well.

So used to it, totally forgot he was snubbed again, haha. His direction was easily better than all the nominees too.
It's okay. Kubrick never won.

I need to see it again -- I may have not been in the right mood for that kind of movie.
it's definitely a movie you have to watch more than once, even more than twice. I know that's not always ideal for the average movie consumer, and I know that I was just like what the fuck and confused and angry a little bit after my first viewing. But I still think I'd take that over by the books films that were nominated.

That doesn't mean it deserves to be nominated though.
I think it does. I don't think it should win, but it should be getting more recognition than a lot of the movies nominated. another snub is HOLY MOTORS. If the Academy needed to fill its foreign film quota, it should have gone with that over AMOUR.

I have that feeling Spielberg's gonna win. Bigelow not being nominated. Affleck. Tarantino. Anderson.

And Spielberg's prolly take it? ANGER!

Well Drew you're crazy. I do agree the academy should award more original film making, but it should be good.
I won't dispute your first sentence haha

She's just the best -- has won me over completely. Great person.
I'm a big fan of hers too. It's to the point I'll almost see any movie she stars in. (almost because I don't want to see that bad horror movie she was in last year haha)
