    An even bigger list of future Oscar nominees and one winner.

    Precious and The Wrestler were both films that I felt had wonderful performances but I really didn’t care for them as films that I would ever want to see again. Black Swan was a movie I really appreciated more over time, especially for the last hour of the film (though I was not completely impressed with Natalie Portman). The Artist was really a joyful movie for me….I am not sure if I would have given it Best Picture or not, but I do like it and don’t begrudge its win.

    I liked Juno more than others, but I definitely agree that the screenplay maybe tried a little too hard to stand out.

    Brokeback Mountain was a beautiful film to look at and it contained a strong core of an ensemble but despite its legendary status it pretty much instantly received, I am not a passionate fan.

    I think Far From Heaven, Lost in Translation, Sideways, and Little Miss Sunshine were all very strong films and they all contend for my vote, but I will have to think it over.  

    ****EDIT:  I ended up voting for LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE

    Little Miss Sunshine

    This film is very important to me. On top of being a well made movie, it really opened me up to being the pseudo-cinephile I’ve become.  I’m sure I would have gotten into films without this, but I must give credit where credit is due. 

    As a film, it’s hilarious, whip-smart and very compelling. At times, it’s a bit too close to home, but irresistable nonetheless.

    Brokeback Mountain is certainly the most important film on the list.

    I also like Little Miss Sunshine, and The Artist, and Black Swan.

    Mixed feelings about Far From Heaven, and Sideways.

    Not a fan of Lost in Translation, and absolutely loathe Juno.

    A tough choice, but I’m going with Little Miss Sunshine. This is one of my favorite films. Every scene captured me.

    I like so many films from this list! And some I love. Can it be a five-way-tie?
