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.
