I think part of my problem was that I haven't seen enough of the nominees this year. Most of them opened recently here, and I haven't had the chance to see them yet. But then, I also haven't felt much of a desire to see any of them either. The Artist, yes. Hugo? Yeah, okay. But I have no desire to see The Descendants or Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. I saw The Help and it was predictable. Midnight in Paris was fun, but hardly a Best Picture. Moneyball and War Horse hold no appeal at all, and while I really liked Tree of Life, I can see why it was overlooked.
What are your thoughts on this year's selection?
