Now that I've talked about them and perused the entire list, here are the NINE nominees for the Academy Award for Best Picture
“Midnight in Paris”
“The Tree of Life”
“Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close”
Of the remaining FIVE I really only want to see The Descendants.
I really, really, REALLY don't want to see The Artist, but it's getting SO MUCH buzz and acclaim I feel I must. I mean I really, really, REALLY didn't want to see The Help, but I did and enjoyed it. (Read my full review here)
I really, really, REALLY don't want to see War Horse, but it's Spielberg so I might.
I'm indifferent about Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, but if I see War Horse I might round that out with The Tree of Life so I can say I've seen ALL NINE Best Picture nominees.
I'll see if I can see the remaining five, but it looks like The Descendants and The Artist may be the only ones I see before the Academy Awards telecast on February 26, 2012.
