Of course, the most exciting win of the night could be Jeff Bridges. Long-fucking-time coming.

Wow. That AFI list is pretty schitzo. I'm still really curious as to how this 10 Best Picture noms is going to work. I really think if they were going to go that way, they should do it like the Golden Globes.

I really need to catch The Hurt Locker. I've heard really good things about it.

I hate AFI so much. Not entirely for reasons of their own doing.

They could certainly try to get a separate pool of dramas and comedy/musicals to make things more inclusive, and have them all compete together, but there's no way the Academy would give out two separate Best Picture awards.

A Single Man isn't going to contend aside from Firth and the art direction.

I'd say it's probably between Up in the Air and The Hurt Locker, and if the former starts doing well at the box office, that could be the difference. My money is on Bigelow for Director either way. Too historical of an opportunity to pass up.
I think the fall-out from Wall-E not making it the year before combined with Pixar's pedigree and the creation of the Top 10 format is the perfect storm that'll allow Up to be on that final list.

Fair enough. Maybe a Julianne Moore nom somewhere?

Up in the Air for Picture, with Bigelow as Director and Reitman/Turner winning Adapted Screenplay would be totally fine by me, and entirely within the realm of possibility.

Good lord, ain't it the truth.

I kind of hope not. There have been more than enough great films this year that Up could still easily fall out, which I'd be perfectly OK with. As much as I did like Up, the Pixar worship is starting to wear thin. Although, maybe if Up gets into the Best Pic race, there will be more inclination to award something else the animation statue? I could only hope anyway, as I've already seen two vastly superior animated films this year that are likely to make the shortlist.

That's very likely as well, and more or less fine by me (assuming I don't despise Up in the Air, which I don't anticipate), though I'd really like somebody else to take the screenplay category.

I am glad to see the Hurt Locker getting so much attention

for those that have not seen it, I'm afraid the hype may get their expectations too high

I am also happy to see Sugar included on some lists




it is a great little film that usually gets completely overlooked

SUGAR || A SONY PICTURES CLASSICS RELEASE

Hmm, I'd never heard of Sugar. It's in my Netflix queue now.

In that Sugar pic, the guy on the left looks like he just shit himself, and the girl at the table looks like she just noticed it too.

Hasn't The Lovely Bones been getting very lukewarm reviews, though?

I cannot wait to see Crazy Heart. Damn.

It's at 40% on RT with only 70 reviews, so it has a chance to go up. I'm just guessing the combination of it being an adaptation of a popular book and the pedigree of Peter Jackson and some of the cast will keep it in contention.
