OSCAR post: My Reviews for the 10 Best Picture-nominated Movies at Oscars 2011

This year's Oscars are just around the corner, and I'll lie if I say I'm not excited. Therefore, I decided to link my reviews for all 10 Best Picture-nominated films, instead of making unnecessary predictions. These reviews will speak for themselves. Check them out if you still haven't, and let me know what you think. Do you agree with me... or not? Which film you're rooting for? Excluding these 10, which other movies deserved to be nominated? Are you thrilled about the Oscars or you don't give a damn? Do you think the Academy will get it right? Just share anything you want regarding the Oscars 2011!

So are you pulling for the Social Network?
Sorry if this is a duplicate comment - got an error message the first time.

Alex, absolutely! I reckon it deserves to win BEST PICTURE, way more than The King's Speech does.

It,s OK. No worries ;)

I loved Social Network, but I picked King's Speech on my Oscar ballot. I hope I'm wrong, but I went with my gut. Can't wait to see how it all shakes out.

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Ah, Mel... The King's Speech is the typical Oscar material, and I'm sick of typical Oscar materials :) It was great but definitely not the best. Same can be said for Firth's overrated performance. My opinion though. :)

Honestly, there is a great selection this year. It's really hard to pick just one. However, I really loved "127 hours." I think I am just so amazed at how it was that good and required so little. If I could choose a film outside of these 10 I would choose "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World." I know it would never happen but it would be nice to see a film like that get appreciated at an event like this. Will the Academy get it right? I can hope for the best but probably not. Great post!!

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Thanks, Nicole! :)

"127 Hours" was an incredible experience! I absolutely loved it.

"Scott Pilgrim" deserves to be nominated for best editing and visual effects. It was insane and one of my 2010's favorites.

Unfortunately, the probably won't. I expect the overrated "Speech" to get most of the awards. Damn!

They go for another safe choice again this year, The King’s Speech. I think The Social Network or Inception deserve it more, cause they’re modern and something different. Even David Fincher was robbed for his award, and so was Nolan. Directors who has such a wonderful pedigree and resume like them, loses to the guy who just made one good movie :(

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Jaccsy, everything was fine till they announced Best Director and Best Picture... I couldn't believe what was happening! Hooper over Fincher and Nolan?!? WTF?! It was a total JOKE! And, yes, KS was the safest choice possible - both The Social Network and Inception were much more polished and accomplished films! The Academy got it wrong again. Hey, who cares?

Dempsey Sanders said...

like you I was pulling for the Social network, but knew that Kings speech would win it, like you say typical Oscar material

Dempsey Sanders said...

I am seeing the comments above and knew the awards would get this reaction again, and I have to agree with both you and Jaccsy, it was very predictable, and thought the Social Network deserved more concideration than what it got.

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Glad to see you back Mr. Miami :) Where the heck have you been?

I was terribly disappointed by the Oscars. Everything was so boring and predictable. And Hooper won best director?! WTF?! Fincher should have won!

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Glad you agree with us, Demps. TSN should have won BEST PICTURE, not the overrated King's Speech.
