I really don't like having ten Best Picture nominees instead of five. That's way too many.

If Hurt Locker and Bigelow win, I will delight in the schadenfreude of Bigelow shoving it in Cameron's face. She can just stand on the podium at the end and declare "I'M QUEEN OF THE UNIVERSE...BITCH!!" and I'll be happy.

She's too classy for that. Plus, Cameron has been uncharacteristically gracious so far this season, even going so far as to admit that she deserves the awards more than him.

I tend to agree, but it's a double-edged sword. As eye-rolling as it is to see 'Blind Side' as a BP nominee, it's also great to see movies like Up and District 9 be recognized since you know they wouldn't have sniffed a nomination in a five-picture field. Everyone seems to agree that Hurt Locker, Inglourious, Avatar and UITA would've all been nominated for BP anyway, so I wonder which of the other six would've been the fifth nominee under the old rules.

This is probably going to be kind of a rote ceremony...Bridges, Waltz, Mo'Nique are huge favorites, it's looking like Sandra Bullock is the big favorite for Best Actress (there's a sentence I never thought I'd write), Bigelow is the favorite for direction. The only question is whether Hurt Locker or Avatar will take the big prize.

I'd guess Precious, since it also got nominated for director.

I'm not much of a movie buff or anything, but Avatar or Basterds winning BP would be rediculous IMO. I didn't dislike them, but neither blew me away. UP winning would make my day.

Up being *nominated* made my day. It winning would be an incredible fountain of joy. Not that it's going to happen. But I still will put the Pixar canon up against any other group of at-all-related films of the same time period.

My feeling at the moment is that Avatar won't win Best Picture. I think people will feel that it's had enough of the spotlight and it's not THAT great. I don't think it winning would be ridiculous--I can think of much worse that won--but I don't think it's really worthy, either.

It really is surprising that Bullock seems such a lock for Best Actress, but that shows the lack of strong female roles out there. Streep's not going to win again for something that's less than substantial. If Mirren hadn't won a couple of years ago, she'd be the favorite, but the sentimentality won't be there. Sidibe has a shot, I guess.

The video kind of sold me too. Although Criterion fans might do a double-take.
