The Oscar nominations are out and I’m utterly underwhelmed. Here’s a link, these are the nominees for best picture:
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Midnight in Paris
The Tree of Life
I can’t believe they’ve actually nominated Tree of Life. As much as I sang praise for this film before seeing it, after seeing it I can’t believe how this convoluted, messy and evangelical piece of nonsense could get nominated. Well, maybe it’s time to admit that the Oscars are finally beyond relevant.
My choice for – at least – best picture and directing? Drive. Too bad it’s not nominated.
