Writer's Block: And the Oscar Goes To

What movie, whether it was nominated by the Academy or not, gets your personal vote for Best Picture of 2008?


I think Slumdog was my favorite of last year's films. But the Academy really screwed up IMHO. Films that should have been nominated for Best Picture that weren't: Dark Knight, Wall-E, In Bruges.

And this video should convince you that Benjamin Button isn't that great of a film. Just a film with some good performances. Not anything worth 13 nominations.

And if Tomei wins tonight and Winslet doesn't = Tomei - 2 Oscars, Winslet - 0 Oscars.

But I'll still watch tonight, if only for the dresses and to see how Jackman does as host.

And Jerry Lewis gets the lifetime achievement award. How many times is he going to be bleeped out?

If I'm not mistaken, Jerry's receiving the Jean Herscholt Humanitarian Award (so, it's for his fundraising work). As far as I'm concerned, the guy deserves an Academy Award for his career achievements, but sadly this isn't it, and he probably won't get one now.
