    Those are who I think will win not really who I think should win.
    My favorite movie this year has been "Up In the Air" although I really did enjoy "The Hurt Locker". To be honest I liked all of the best picture nominees except for "Precious"

    If there is any justice Christoph Waltz will win Best Supporting Actor. He absolutely made that movie.

    I haven't seen The Lovely Bones, but I'm happy to see Stanley Tucci get nominated, he's an amazingly talented actor.

    Sharlto Copley deserved a nomination for Best Actor. His performance changed District 9 from a standard sci-fi shoot-'em-up into something special. It was astonishing, especially for an untrained actor.

    Kinda picked the wrong year to expand best movie to 10.

    I'm pretty certain they're going to split Best Director and Best Picture between "Hurt Locker" and "Avatar", but I can't decide which it's going to fall yet.

    On one hand, I think Bigelow would be the political choice for Best Director since there has never been a female recipiant of the award and she would be the first. On the other hand, Cameron's major accomplishment with "Avatar" is directing the thousands of techs, extras, actors, etc. that worked together to bring the vision of the film to life -- and that's in addition to the work he did in pushing for the technology to make the movie possible.

    Whichever way the Academy goes for BD, they'll go the other way for Best Picture.

    Right now, I'm leaning more towards "Avatar" as Best Picture and Bigelow as "Best Director" (with "Hurt Locker" getting a script award too) -- but I'm nowhere near certain.
    Championships Matter.

    I'll be disappointed if Avatar wins Best Picture or Best Original Screenplay, though I can see giving it the nod for Best Visual Effects, Cinematography, and Director.

    Werd.

    How could 10 movies be nominated for Best Picture, and The Hangover not be among them?

    And how in the world could Avatar not win best picture? It wasn't the best story or the best movie but the numbers speak for themselves. It's rewriting history weekend after weekend and will likely not be toppled for sometime. (3-5 years maybe, LOL!)

    Because the award is Best Picture, not Most Money.

    I am well aware and fully agree. The movie storyline (Avatar) was very plain and predictable but you have to admit that the numbers do factor into the awards. The previous record holder Titanic won best picture. IMO, it was not a great movie either. It was a love story where a big ship sank. I think it competed with Good Will Hunting and As Good as it Gets which, IMO, were better movies. I would be shocked if Avatar didn't win.

    The Dark Knight earned the most money at the box office last year and they only came away with two oscar nominations, neither of which were for best picture. Honestly, if there was ever an award show were money wasn't a factor, it would be the Academy Awards.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
