    Argo won Best Picture/Cast at the Golden Globes, SAG, Critics Choice, BAFTA, numerous critics groups as well as PGA (and WGA and DGA)

    Tree of Life surprised me nicely, because it seemed so experimental for Oscar taste.

    Crouching Tiger also surprised me because I didn’t expect the amount of nominations/wins it received in Oscars. Especially since it’s an East Asian film with no English and all Asian Cast.

    Yall know how I feel about Extremely Loud and Fences. Lol bye.

    Ever? Yeesh. The first thing that actually came to mind for me was Awakenings. Much as I happen to like the film, it still stuns me that managed a Best Picture nod.

    OSCAR FLASHBACK: 20 Years of Streep (1978 – The Deer Hunter)

    Whaaaat??? But it taught us all that the one thing a poor black person truly needs is a rich white lady to come in and save them! 😉

    The Alamo from John Wayne

    Critics AND audiences hated it, so how the actual fuck did it get nominated for Best Picture over Spartacus AND Psycho, even when the latter managed a rare Best Director nomination for Alfred Hitchcock?!

    Oh yeah, all those Oscar campaign ads… I am NOT your cousin, Chill Wills!!! 🙁

    Shocking (good, but not best picture nominee good):

    Toy Story 3, Grand Budapest Hotel, 127 Hours, and Up.

    Disappointing (wtf was The Academy thinking?):

    Birdman, The Blind Side, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and Shakespeare in Love.

    omg I forgot that movie was even in the race. I always pretend Miss Congeneality is the Best Picture film that has Sandy carrying the film with just her name. Describe your favorite date is more memorable than The Blind Side and 90% of rom-com.
