Hah, was just thinking what happened to Charles' usual wrap of the Oscar noms. Cutting it fine this year.

My picks were just put up too. Not too much disagreement. (Almost identical reasoning behind the pick for Original Screenplay.)

Yeah, I've had a friend visiting for the past 2 weeks, so it's been a bit tight on the blogging.

You don't think Dragon Tattoo will take the sound awards, eh?

I hope that the voters will at least say of Tree of Life that it sure is beautiful, so Emmanuel Lubezki will get it.

That was probably the most boring Oscars ever. I had heard good things about the Christopher Guest section, but even that wasn't much. If Angelina Jolie hadn't done the leg thing, this year's Oscars would be completely forgotten.

I don't understand the Sacha Baron Cohen controversy, but he was in one of the montages. His "Dictator" clip (I saw it on IMDB before the Oscars) was funnier than the whole show.

This was the first Oscars I ever watched from start to finish and with (very) minor exception it was incredibly boring. Is that how it always is, or was this just a bad year? I don't think I'll ever bother watching again.

I didn't watch much of the ceremony in the end, but by many accounts it was more boring than usual. Certainly a pretty boring year for film - especially the sort the Academy focuses on.

That was the lamest line up of Best Picture noms in a while.
