My 2010 Oscar picks (just in time)!

It's Oscar predicting time again. I am very fortunate to have seen all ten films nominated for Best Picture this year, and most other films that aren't in a short and/or foreign language category. I have to say, it's an odd year, but most of these films are quite deserving, except for The Blind Side. How the hell did that get in there? My favorite film of the year, 500 Days of Summer, got snubbed, but I don't control the universe so I can't complain.

So here's how this is going to work. I'm going to pick my favorites for each category. If I feel the need to spout off about a category, I will. These are my picks for what films/actors should win. These aren't necessarily what films/actors I think will win. The Oscars air tonight at 9 p.m. Okay, here we go.

Peter Jackson's District 9 will be AMAZING, says the Internet (Media Round-up)

When do you believe what everyone is saying, and when to wonder about it? Peter Jackson’s District 9 is getting more coverage than any other film opening this weekend. The thing is, it’s all positive coverage with a similar theme, “District 9 didn’t impress me before, but now it’s awesome.” And most of these “it’s great” pronunciation are accompanied by an exclusive interview, or an exclusive video. There’s little room for objectivity.

Nevertheless, let’s explore some of the new videos, interviews, and the inspiration for District 9 from all across the internets, and make up our own minds. After the jump, you’ll find everything you need to know about the aliens in District 9 and how great the media thinks they are.
