Attention Movie Buffs! The Academy awards are just two days away! Time for an Offtopic discussion thread!
In my opinion this has been a pretty good year for movies. Although Best Picture is obviously the most interesting category there are many other categories that deserve attention. Christian Bale and Geoffrey Rush both have stong cases for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, and there are several strong candidates for Best Actress.
As for Best picture, here are the nominees, in no particular order:
- The Social Network
- The King's Speech
- The Kids are Alright
- Winter's Bone
- Toy Story 3
- The Fighter
- True Grit
- The Black Swan
- 127 Hours
You can look at the rest of the nominees for other categories here. I'm personally looking forward to "Best Original Score," which is my favorite category. I think Trent Reznor did an amazing job with the Social Network, but Hans Zimmer might be the favorite for his work on Inception.
Here is an example of Reznor's work. (Not sure why it won't embed. Sorry)
Don't feel limited to these questions, but just to get the Ball rolling:
- What was your favorite movie you saw this year?
- Who do you think will win Best Picture?
- Who do you think should win Best Picture?
- Do you have any personal favorites you want in any category?
- Which movie were you surprised to enjoy?
