In case you have heard, here are the 10 movies nominated this year:
- Up in the Air
- The Road
- The Lovely Bones
- The Boys Are Back
- Inglourious Bastards
- Away We Go
A positive out of this change is that a small movie like "Away We Go" even gets the chance to be nominated.
I've seen 4 of these movies and there are two more that I would like to see..but there are also a few that I really don't want to see. I know I should, but harsh doses of reality are not my idea of fun or entertainment.
My general rule...don't see movies that will keep me up at night. It's not much...but I find it's a good rule to go by as I am very impressionable and easily distraught. (Blame Virginia...I inherited this tendency from her.)
So...which of the 10 movies might you be rooting for this year?
Me...I'm guessing I'll be rooting for Up or Away We Go at this point. Likely, I'll be disappointed on Oscar night.
