    The Blind Side - Sandra Bullock ****ing sucks and you can't make a movie about a football success story before the guy is actually a success.

    District 9 - This was a legitimately great movie. Far more original than Avatar, but just overall not as impressive.

    An Education - No idea.

    The Hurt Locker - Movie was terrible. Entirely unrealistic and set up as basically a "woo look war is CRAZY! it makes people CRAZY! lets wrassel."

    Inglourious Basterds - Brad Pitt is a taint.

    Precious - Didn't see it, but they took a huge chance on this picture and I think that should be respected.

    A Serious Man - No idea.

    Up - Awesome movie, but kids movies just don't win.

    Up in the Air - No idea, but Clooney is a ****eating douchebag.

    Quoted for truth.

    I loved District 9.

    If District 9 wins? I will NEVER take the Oscars serious again. It was a crap film and it did NOT send the message they wanted it to send as it was just too damn lame to get that across.

    Precious should win!

    The White Ribbon / Das weiße Band this was the best picture of the year globally. The Hurt Locker was excellent. The White Ribbon is nominated for best picture foreign. A Serious Man was not to bad either.

    the Oscars are not the high water mark in film anymore. the are a great award for people to have but a Palme d'Or is a really something to have.

    Ah yes, from the noble institution that declared Fahrenheit 9/11 to be the greatest film of 2004.

    have you seen The White Ribbon Palme d'OR best picture.

    Have you seen Anticryst. have you seen A Prophet, Fish Tank, or Kinatay.

    the one American Film that did well was Inglourious Basterds with a win for best actor Christoph Waltz who happens to be foreign as well.

    the US makes films to put asses in the seats and that is usually what the get asses in the seats. when they do produce a great film no one goes because they don't understand them. so like i said the US makes films for asses for the most part.

    That is why "The Road" isn't part of the list.
    What an awesome movie.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    No, but since I'm not claiming that Cannes is the be-all and end-all of cinema, I don't see why it matters.

    Yes, and as everyone knows, the profit motive is limited to American theaters. Every other country eschews profit in order to pursue cinema as an art form - it's just us stupid Americans who don't appreciate film for its beauty.

    (Nevermind that even if we assume that Cannes is the arbiter of quality cinema, the US has thoroughly dominated there as well.)
