And the Oscar Goes To...

I have actually seen 5 of the nine nominated Best Pictures.    I've seen The Help, War Horse, The Descendants, The Artist and Hugo. I have not seen Moneyball, Midnight in Paris, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and The Tree of Life.

Not seeing all of them does limit my ability to pick a winner but, I do feel better equipped than most years.

So for what's worth, I think the Oscar should to:





The Artist

I just loved it.

  1. You did like it!? I watched the award show last night and so wanted George Clooney and The Descendents to get it. I don't really care for silent films so I just could not figure if I would enjoy The Artist. It sure did get the awards though.

    1. Linda,

      I really did like this movie. It's fun and celebrates the art of movie making, which I just loved. Now...that doesn't mean I'm wanting a steady stream of silent B/W films. This movie was making a point that was enhanced by these techniques. If someone else tries it, it will likely fall flat as it really is a one trick pony.

      I thought The Descendants was well done as well, although a really tough subject matter that left me filling really down afterwards. And I don't know if I ever really bought George as this dorky out of touch husband. The oldest daughter was amazing. If anyone should have been nominated...it should have been her.
