I haven't seen this film discussed enough. One of the most unexpected surprises of the year.

Up until that scene I thought it was a waste of time, but what a scene it was.

No Country and The Hurt Locker were both the best films nominated in the years they won, even if I personally like Inglourious Basterds more than the latter.

I don't understand what that means. Are you saying your own opinion is wrong? That there is a rigid objective quality that you didn't agree with?

Only checked "Other." Terrible year, awards shows have ruined film, etc. I can't believe how interested I was in this shit a couple of years ago. Growing up is hard.

I would call awards season the most destructive force in film. Blockbusters are destructive, but they don't infringe on what should be quality in the same way.

Could you give some examples? I can't think of two categories they more consistently fuck up.

If you admit they are lousy at this sort of thing, why do you choose to follow them?
