Re: 2009 Oscar Nominations

This is a very difficult Oscars to predict. Reason being that this was a fairly lackluster year for films, and almost everything on the nominees list was good but not great. Of the nominees for best picture, the only one I feel is deserving is Slumdog Millionaire. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Frost/Nixon didn't even deserve nominations. I hate to sound like a fan boy (becuase I do fancy myself a film aficionado, and make it a point to see all those movies that may be nominated) but the best picture I saw all year really was The Dark Knight. It's sad to see that the Academy is still unable to overcome its prejudices against genre pictures.
