The Oscars is the only awards show I ever watch because a) why would I care about the Grammy’s as they reward people like Lady Antellope or whatever it is and b) I like movies a lot. Here are my very expert thoughts, because this year, I saw ALL TEN Best Picture nominated films.
Zee Nominees: Amour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Misérables, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, Zero Dark Thirty
Who I Think Will Win: Lincoln (other high-odds pics: SLP, ZDT, Argo)
Who Should Win: This is hard. Django Unchained was probably my favorite because it was a wildly entertaining movie. Argo also. Amour was a beautiful film but not one I want to watch again and also has an ice cube’s chance in hell of winning. Beasts of the Southern Wild blew my mind. I personally HATED Lincoln, I don’t understand what the fuss is about, and I think my dislike for Spielberg stems from my hatred for Dawson Leery (who gets it?). So, I think my choice is Beasts of the Southern Wild.
Zee Nominees: Amour (Michael Haneke), Beasts of the Southern Wild (Benh Zeitlin), Life of Pi (Ang Lee), Silver Linings Playbook (David O. Russell), Lincoln (Steven Spielberg)
