Oscar Meh Nominations Blah

Posted on Updated on

Oscar nominations were announced today. Most of the film industry has gone absolutely mad over them. I’m left wondering if the people who voted have actually seen half of these films. So here’s a little exercise. Listed below are the nine films nominated for Best Picture this year. I’ve seen the first five, and have ranked them in order, the other four are somewhat random.

  1. The Artist
  2. Midnight In Paris
  3. Moneyball
  4. The Help
  5. The Tree Of Life
  6. The Descendents
  7. Hugo
  8. War Horse
  9. Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close

Now here’s a list of eighteen films which weren’t nominated for Best Picture. Your task is to count how many films on the bottom list should have been on the top list, and consequently vice versa. If you can’t find at least four films to swap over, you’re doing it wrong.

  1. Shame
  2. Drive
  3. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
  4. Take Shelter
  5. Super 8
  6. We Need To Talk About Kevin
  7. A Separation
  8. Tyrannosaur
  9. Warrior
  10. Submarine
  11. Melancholia
  12. Senna
  13. Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes
  14. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
  15. The Ides Of March
  16. 50/50
  17. Bridesmaids
  18. Beginners

Excellent. If you’re not weeping into your cocoa at the sheer injustice of it all by now, then you have my pity.
