I thought this would be a weak years for Best Picture and this list of nominees proves it. Is anyone going to remember these films in a few years?
This type of thinking says more about the viewer than the actual quality of the movies being made.
With that said, I'm impressed with the majority of the selections. And am rooting for "The Artist", if not for the win, then at least for more awareness so people will go out and (hopefully!) enjoy the movie.
