When the Oscar nominees were announced, I posted a poll for everyone to sound off about which film should win the best-picture award. I’m thrilled to see that, so far, one of my favorite films, District 9, is leading the pack with 30 percent of the votes. Go prawns!
As promised, here are some additional choices you can make … although, I’m sad to say, no one will actually listen to us when it comes time to hand out these awards. Sorry. That’s just the way it is.
More polls for additional Oscar categories coming soon! And, yes, you can still vote for best picture. Simply go to POLLS and vote to your heart’s content!
The Oscar nomination lists are out. This year’s field of Best Picture nominees has increased from the traditional five to a whopping ten.
Really? Hmm …
Were there actually ten films worthy of Academy Award best-pic nominations in the past year? Is my tongue planted firmly in my cheek, or am I serious? (No, that’s not the poll question.)
Pretend you are a member of AMPAS and have just one vote to cast among these contenders. There is no bribery or any other shenanigan involved. What’s your pick?
Yes, my opinionated fellow movie watchers, there will be more polls, and you will get to sound off about award-worthy directors, writers, actors, and more. Stay tuned, and have fun catching up on your movie-watching before Oscar Night, March 7.
Mood: jaded yet hopeful
