Final Results of the Oscar Prediction Poll

In a poll that wasn't even close, Avatar smoked the competition in the recent poll where I asked readers which movie did they think would receive the most Oscar nominations. Although Avatar dominated the poll, there were a couple of voters (Richard and Jenna) who didn't have much love for the James Cameron blockbuster. Other than the visuals, they weren't all that impressed. I like it when people shoot down critical darlings and Richard & Jenna were locked and loaded.

The nominations for the Academy Awards will be announced on Tuesday, February 2nd 2010 starting at 8:30 am EST.

Here are the final poll results:

Avatar- 57%
Precious- 14%
Inglorious Basterds- 10%
Up In the Air- 8%
The Hurt Locker- 7%
Other- 1% (Damn it! I forgot to ask voters who chose this option to leave the movie title in the comments section)

Have not seen Avatar but due to all the hub bub I may actually give it a go.

Saw Hurt Locker this weekend. Good film. Not amazing, as some were making it out to be, but worth a watch.

I posted a photo of us wearing our 3D glasses last night after our second viewing of Avatar.

To quote the great Roger Ebert and his Twitter: "All hail Avatar, yes, but the year's best picture? Give me a f--king break."

It was a fun ride, sure, but by no means worthy of any awards. I loved Star Trek too, but that's not nominated for fuck all. They're kind of in the same league as far as I'm concerned.
