Oscar Thoughts

You know, this ten-movie Best Picture thing makes it a lot harder to complain about the Oscars. I find not much to disagree with on the best picture slate; of the ten nominees I had them ranked 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th, 13th, 16th, 18th, 21st and 26th. So nothing I really hated made the cut.

Still, some pretty egregious snubs, led of course by Christopher Nolan for director (and "Inception," the best-edited movie in years, being shut out of that category.) No "Tillman Story" for doc? No Michael Doughlas for "Solitary Man"? And while I realize everyone but me hated "Love and Other Drugs," but Anne Hathaway should've been nominated.
