“Avatar” shouldn’t…

win the award for Best Picture at the 82nd Academy Awards. and if it does, i will lose what minor shreds of faith i might have in the Academy.

astute observers might point out that i have only seen two of this year’s nominees, and that Avatar isn’t one of those.

but i stand by my assertion. the Best Picture should be the best. and i sincerely doubt Avatar is. except for its Best Picture and Director nods, the rest of its nominations are technical. no acting or writing nominations at all. a derivative plot and lazy writing (unobtanium? really?) with really cool graphics does not a best picture make. in other words, four thousand computers don’t outweigh a couple actors.

quote of the day:

“Suvlu’taHvIS yapbe’ HoS neH” – Klingon proverb
