Oscar Nominations

The Oscar nominations are out and I’m utterly underwhelmed. Here’s a link, these are the nominees for best picture:

The Artist
The Descendants
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
The Help
Hugo
Midnight in Paris
Moneyball
The Tree of Life
War Horse

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.
