So, another year of films, another poor list to choose from.
The Artist wins best picture...really? Another film set in days gone by, though magnified through black and white visuals, cheerful tunes and laughable facial expressions. When I saw the trailer to this film, it didn't interest me in the slightest.
Of the nominees, I thought Moneyball was the most impressive and definitely up the alley of those who cast a vote. Midnight in Paris had no chance, The Descendants was another outlet for George Clooney to get his big mug on screen and Hugo was only technically stunning, not deserving of best picture. The others were merely list fillers, which shows the type of film the Academy goes for.
Last year, The King's Speech was chosen over more enjoyable flicks such as Inception, The Social Network, The Fighter, Toy Story 3 and True Grit.
Does anyone take notice anymore?
I'm still puzzled over Avatar's loss to The Hurt Locker.
Catch you all tomorrow.
