      Also, Shakespeare in Love was the better movie. I'm not saying I don't like SPR, but after the first 20 minutes that were groundbreaking for the violence, the rest was a decent war movie and nothing more.

          I'm not talking about the money. I'm talking about a movie that should have won over a weaker movie. Looking back on it I think most would agree it was a bad decision. I think after the luster wears off on Avatar people are going to look back and wonder why that won Best Picture if it actually happens. The Avatar hype machine is just too crazy right now.

            a better question is 'who doesnt?' because we'll berate them accordingly

            • You can say that almost every year though. I personally think the wrong movie won 6 out of the 9 years in the 2000's.

              • I would have picked American History X over Shakespeare as well but American History wasn't even nominated for Best Picture.

                    You can but I think that year was one of the more egregious mistakes of the last 10+ years.

                      I saw it. It was garbage. Very underwhelming. Now I can't wait for Shutter Island so I can wash this off of me.

                        Yeah, add The Simpsons Movie too. All those >>>>>>>> than IG or TS.

                        Or any of the classic cartoons from Spike & Mike's Sick & Twisted cartoon collections, like the original South Park made from paper cutouts that got it's start there, or the 5-second Bambi Meets Godzilla.

                        Or those classic "alternative" cartoon films from the 70s, like Yellow Submarine, The Point (music & lyrics by the late great Harry Nillsson), Wizards the LotR 1st film iteration by Ralph Bakshi, Mr. Bill series of stop-motion/claymation from SNL that gave us Chicken Run, etc.

                          Viggo Mortensen is the Man! His LotR lead role boosted him up to the A-list, he kicked ass in HoV, literally & figuratively. Anybody remember The Prophecy with Christopher Walken about apocalypse & warring angels? Viggo played Lucifer in a smaller role but blew all the other killer angels off the screen.....

                            I was so pissed after I bought AHX from BuyBacks only to find that the tape inside of the VHS was ripped. Such a letdown seeing as it's such an awesome movie. Edward Norton is such a boss.

                              Worst decisions:

                              Annie Hall over Star Wars
                              Forrest Gump over Pulp Fiction and Shawshank Redemption

                              The luster is already gone for me. If they wouldn't have nominated so many films, which is a horrible idea by the way, I don't think it deserved a nomination.

                              Avatar is the film equivalent of a ride at Universal Studios; you enjoy Jurassic Park: The Ride or Jaws: The Ride for the "experience," and you obviously wouldn't complain about the story or actors. The same could be said of Avatar. If it wins then that sends an awful message; you can make two billion dollars, win all the awards with a movie that features 3D visuals and 1D story and acting.

                              • If Avatar wins "Best Picture," I won't ever watch the Oscars again. There are much better and more deserving films instead of the one that "rakes in all the cash." Just because tons of people see a movie does not make it the best of the year, by any means.
