I can’t believe that little District 9 got nominated for Best Picture – booyah! Although it really doesn’t stand a chance, does it? It’s the only Best Picture nominee I’ve seen, funnily enough, although I’m rooting for The Hurt Locker, which, by everything I’ve read, is the film that deserves to win. I really hope that Avatar doesn’t take it – I hear that what it’s got going for it is the visual spectacle, but the story, the characters and the acting just don’t hold up to close scrutiny.
Those of you who’ve seen more than one of the Best Picture noms, what’s your pick for the little gold statue?
