Ideally I'd like The Hurt Locker or A Serious Man to win, but besides that godawful Sandra Bullock movie, I'd say every other nominee was more worthy of the Best Picture award.
And Let The Right One In was better than all of them :x
I agree with everything you just said. Well played.
Avatar is fucking Pocahontas in space, with the Indians replaced by giant blue cats. The effects and 3D were stunning, but that doesn't make up for the film being as shallow as fuck.
The Hurt Locker deserves to win, as it was amazing, but it won't.
