The nominations for best picture are:
Black Swan: -SAW it- loved- Natalie Portman was haunting and amazing- I will never look at finger nail clippers the same. Of course, Darren Aronofsky- Continues to WOW me and confuse the hell outta me.. and a little shout out to my girl Wynona Ryder!
The Fighter-Have not seen this one yet.. WILL watch it THIS WEEK.. MUST WATCH. I know Christian Bell and Melissa Leo are top runners..
True Grit-I saw True Grit on opening night (Xmas) in the theatre with my entire family (and Holly)- HEY HOLLY!!- haha- she doesnt read blogs!!! Oh man, this movie was real good, and i really wish Jeff Bridges was more of a top runner- he was just great. The horse scene- when they are trying to get somewhere (won't spoil it )-- Broke my heart.... and the little girl... so good.
Toy Story 3-Have not seen Toy Story 3 yet... prob wont before sunday.. i'm sure it'll be just fine in the Animated Category
Social Network-Social Network- was beautifully shot- the music was awesome.. (thank's Trent Reznor).. but i dont know if it deserves ALL of the accolades it's been getting... do you?
Inception-This movie was awesome- just the cinematography alone made this movie amazing.. if i were able to vote.. Best Director. But it didn't even get nominated for best director. Robbed.
The Kid's Are Alright -I really loved this movie. Don't know if it really deserves Best Picture Nominations- but all of the actors we amazing. And HELLO.. they don't tell you there is a hot sex scene with Mark Ruffalo (who i LOVE). I wont tell you with whom the sex occurs. But my boyfriend Mark- has never been hotter in a movie. And Julianne Moore- who i usually think plays the SAME person in every movie... stood out. She's just one of those actors that has that "ugly cry" know what i mean? Then of course Annette Benning. Love her.
The King's Speech:i mentioned up top- I just saw this 2 days ago. Collin Firth- is amazing. HE WILL WIN. easy.. I wish that Geoffry Rush would win too, oh man.. he breaks my heart.. doesn't hurt that he looks a little like my dad. This movie was so perfectly cast- and the story was great- the acting was great.. oh man.. again.. i cried like a little girl. Loved everything about it. And can't forget Helena Bonham Carter.... i just wanted to her to bust into song like in Sweeny and Todd... love her.
127 Hours-I just recently saw the Dateline about the real guy- and watching the movie- James Franco was perfect for the role. I think he did a great job.. but poor guy won't win... Colin Firth- 100%.
Winter's Bone-I haven't seen this movie- and i dont even remember hearing about it when it came out in the theatre- But it is on my netflix- so i'll watch it one day.. not in a hurry to get to it before Sunday.
I also added a poll over there ------------------------------------------> and a little up there /
YOU can vote for what you think will win best picture. I just chose Social Network and The King's Speech as options because those are the top runners and i want YOUR opinion... i know I only have 4 readers- but if you happen to run across this- please vote anyway. It's FUN!
Can't wait till Sunday.. I'm having a few friends over- to eat- bet on the winners- and drink lots of glasses of wine!
