  1. hahaha! You guys are forgetting that this is from a nerd perspective. Don’t you recall the outrage, from our nerd community, when Inception wasn’t nominated for more Oscars? I sure do. Im glad this kind of gives us a bit of hope, but the only chance Inception has at winning anything is a very slight one with Original Screenplay. We had a pretty damn good year, this years Oscars are going to be great.

  2. I agree Inception is good but not better than true grit or toy story 3. Toy Story 3 in my opinion was the best movie of the year and I think it will win!

  3. I’m surprised that the plurality of readers chose Inception as Best Picture… I really only think it was a solid B on the whole, which is great for a Hollywood blockbuster, but not one of the three or four best movies of the year.
