Of course none of my picks have anything to do with the quality of the performances. We'll see.   

Just like the real Academy voters!

My point exactly!  Wink  It's mostly politics for them.


"Clive [Barker]'s idea of a great time is to have a nightmare about a woman with three heads and no skin who flays your body with a pitchfork. To give you some idea, NIGHTBREED has over 200 pus monsters, including one guy with a crescent moonhead like the McDonald's commercial and a fat guy with snakes that pop out of his stomach and eat your face off, and these are the GOOD GUYS. These are the people we're supposed to LIKE."-Joe Bob on NIGHTBREED

As much as I want Jacki Weaver to win, I don't think she deserves it: her performance was good, but really only knocked it up a notch for about 15 minutes of the film near the end, the rest was pretty by-the-numbers I thought. [I remember watching it and thinking for the first hour, 'she is getting Oscar buzz for THIS?']

I haven't seen the other noms, but Rush did a great job in King's Speech so sign me up!  I find it hard to go past Firth either for Best Actor.

Toy Story 3 is about the closest an animated film for Best Picture as I've ever seen, though I doubt it'll get up.

Disappointed Daft Punk didn't get a nom for Tron, though I'm not surprised.

Considering the industry buzz around it, I feel Social Network's going to clean up in many categories including best adapted screenplay, score, director and editing.

As much as I loved Inception, I don't think it deserves a best picture or director win: IMO it was a great film but it wasn't as groundbreaking or mindbending as people seem to think it was.  If anything Dark Knight deserved it more but didn't win, so I don't see how it deserves the award.

Exit Through the Gift Shop for best doco [its a great film!]

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
