The Oscar nominations were announced today. Since I am a big movie goer, I always look forward to the Academy Awards ceremony, hopefully having seen many of the movies. This year, I've only seen one of the five movies nominated for best picture, but I plan to see one or two more before they pass out the awards on February 22nd.
Here are the movies that have been nominated for best picture:
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
My Aloha Friday question is actually a series of questions. They are:
How many of these movies have you seen?
Are you planning to see any of these before awards night?
Which one(s) would you like to see?
Is there a movie that you think should have been nominated?
The only movie I've seen thus far is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and I can see why it's up for this award, although I don't think it will win. I would really like to see Milk and Slumdog Millionaire so I'll do my best to accomplish that.
There are so many good and well made movies out and I wouldn't presume to know which ones are better than others. I'm sure it's hard to pick only five out of so many. But I've heard a few critics say that they were surprised The Dark Knight or The Wrestler weren't in that top five. From a content value, I think Gran Torino was a great movie and could have been included.
