I like the idea of ten. As long as they don't put crap on there which I don't think they did.

I own every best picture winner all the way back to the beginning in 1927. I'd love to see Up or District 9 win. Those being the only two I've seen on the list. I will own Basterds one way or the other eventually.

surprised to see District 9 on the list.  I was just not as impressed by this as everyone else....

Cartoons and Sci-fi typically don't win Best Picture.

I'm hoping Avatar doesn't win the director or film awards.  It's quite deserving of the technical type awards but the plot and acting doesn't take it to the level of best picture.

District 9 and Hurt Locker are my two favorites from this list.  I really think Hurt Locker was the best film I saw in 2009, just barely beating District 9.

Yeah, probably would've been better if there wasn't so much hype.  Hurt Locker was impressive, as was Basterds.

I'm sure they won't win, but it's a start if they make the list. And more importantly they are deserving and made the list.

I saw Crazy Heart over the weekend.  Not sure if it's going to get a Best Picture nod, but it is one hell of a good movie.  And Jeff Bridges sure as hell better be nominated and win the Oscar for Best Actor.  His performance was simply amazing.

Nominations were announced this morning.  It didn't get one.

And there are now 10 best picture nominees... which is bull****.

I think The Blind Side shoudl win.

District 9 or Up ere awesome movies and wouldn't mind seeing them win.

Inglorious Basterds was good...but best picture?  I don't think so.

Just wanted to throw some Documentary love in here. "Food, Inc." was fascinating (yes biased, but interesting non the less). And "The Cove" looks very good too.

Razzie Award Nominees, from Wikipedia because for some reason I couldn't see the entire list on the Razzie website.

If you haven't seen Hurt Locker yet, do so immediately.  That's my favorite out of the bunch, I think it deserves best picture.

I saw The Hurt Locker and thought it was great...but the Blind Side was better IMO.

Overall I thought it was a good show.

Of course it was too long. After it only ran from 7 to 10 last year I thought maybe they had turned a corner, but starting at 730 was weird and then having it be more than three hours was a bit much.

They really need to cut the other actors talking about the nominees right before the Best Actor/Actress awards.  That is terrible and huge waste of time
