Image Of The Day 2/3/10

This is how you make a good poster. If anybodies seen the movie they will enjoy this simple but effective promo for the Oscar nominated movie. Talkin' about the nominations- they're good (with the exception of a few including that Sandra Bullock Vehicle). Having 10 nominees actually enhances the curiosity and opens up the number of deserving honorees. Remember Wall E and Dark Knight not getting their due last year? That might just be what might have made the Academy change their minds and decide to support more Nominees. One year too late you ask? Not necessarily. I'm happy about An Education and A Serious Man getting in ditto District 9 and Pixar's Up.

The acting nominations are also tremendously deserving (Bullock being the exception again). I'm pulling for Bridges to win his first Oscar as a down and out musician in Crazy Heart. Watch out for Clooney in what could be an upset. Actresses also have their own duel as Sandra Bullock will face against the very powerful Meryl Streep (for her role in Julie and Julia). Streep deserves it but something tells me Bullock will win it. The simple truth is that everybody likes Bullock and she has taken Julia Roberts' throne as America's Sweetheart. As far as maddening wins may come next month when the ceremony rolls in at L.A's Kodak Theatre, Bullock winning may just take the cake.
