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.

I don't know why Ben Affleck isn't in the best director category.
Revenge for Gigli? It really doesn't make sense.

His speech at one of the award shows where he started it with, "I want to thank the Academy..." after winning, was fantastic.

I'm more bothered by PT Anderson's snub.

Hard to argue with that, haha. Don't get me wrong, Lincoln had some great elements in general, and Day-Lewis is always superb, but overall it was a snoozer.
Day Lewis was unreal, but yeah -- over all ... meh.

Not sure why but I'm feeling Amour for best picture. Not my favorite of the bunch (certainly wouldn't watch it again) but it just struck me in a powerful way.

DDL seems like the popular choice for best actor but I haven't seen Lincoln, so no comment.

Hoping for Riva for best actress, Hathaway for supporting actress, and supporting actor is tough but I loved Christoph Waltz in Django.
I really want Hathaway to win.

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.

I also don't get the Tommy Lee Jones or Sally Fields nominations. Jones was, well, Jones in a wig. And Fields was just there, nothing special.

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.

Man, I loved everything about Looper, even more after watching it a second time.

I used to not be able to stand him, burning loved every movie he has directed and a lot of his old movies are complete and utter guilty pleasures of mine even though I know they are terrible (phantoms and reindeer games to name a few).
