Oscars 2010

I am not going to give my predictions just yet. But they just released the list of oscar nominations, and, not to toot my horn but, for better or worse, I am quite the Oscar prognosticator. At least in the "bigger" categories.

As usual the nominations both excite and confuse me though. I have to admit, and I haven't seen it, but I am confused at all the awards season buzz surrounding The Blind Side . Really? They couldn't slot Star Trek in there or something? I don't know, it just seems odd.

  1. You want to know what *really* bothers me about The Blind Side? The family profits off of this kid's unfortunate upbringing and calls it strong, conservative, Christian values.

    So, uh, why didn't you help his mother so *she* could raise him? Or how about helping his twelve other brothers and sisters? Sounds terribly un-Christian to just let his mother, brothers and sisters rot in misery while they get all the glory and applause (and money)for "saving" him.

    I'm not against any religious groups helping those less fortunate. I am against pandering and calling it God's work.

    This movie is a piece of white trash.
