Oscar Nominations - Thoughts?

This morning the Oscar nominations were announced (full list here). I will not go into all of the nominations because I have not seen all the movies but here are my thoughts on some of the buzz...

  • Isn't it funny that Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air) was nominated when her other big role this year was Bella's best friend from Twilight?
  • How about Sandra Bullock? Some say that she does not deserve an award but for someone who has entertained us all for so many years, I believe that she is deserving of some recognition.
  • Many people are not fans of the animated movie Up (Best Picture nominee). I personally loved the movie. A little deep in the beginning for the kids; it made everyone's "bucket list" take on a whole new meaning.
  • I could not get through The Hurt Locker. Most loved the movie, and the critics think that it is phenomenal, just not for me.
  • Is it possible that Mo'Nique is going to be an Oscar winner? What a world we live in!
  • I am so not a James Cameron fan. Even in the height of Titanic (which I loved, don't lie you did too) I never liked the man himself.
These are just my initial thoughts. I am sure that in the next month I will have more (or maybe not you never know). Anyway, let me know what you think about the nominations. Are there any movies that I must see before the big night? And were there any great disappointments?

I'm with you on Cameron. I'd love to see Bigelow win for Hurt Locker, even though it was hard to watch.

And I LOVED Up. I thought it was a great blend of the deep and the funny, like The Incredibles before it.

My only question now, is whether I will watch the Oscars or not.
