Okay. I'm still a bit pissed so I'll just come out and say it: why, oh why, was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 not given a Best Picture nomination? I mean, there was an unused slot out of a possible 10, and that film was clearly a big hit among fans, critics and moviegoers in general. Over $1.3 billion in international box office receipts. A 96% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. What more must a movie do to get some due acknowledgement?
Now that I've gotten that out of the way, let me confess that I am yet to see any of the 9 Best Picture nominees. So as it stands, I am presently rooting for no one. That should change within the month though. This is the one thing I love about awards season: seeing the difference between what you've been watching and what you should have been watching. Still doubt if any of these movies would justify Harry Potter's exclusion, but let's wait and see.
P.S: In totally unrelated news, I scored another interview yesterday. Check it out and let me know what you think.
