The nominees are out, so in our efforts to see the Best Picture nominees we hit Sideways tonight. Oscar worthy? Mmm, maybe, though I'd have given one to The Life Aquatic before this. It's not bad, I laughed a lot, and totally recommend it. Paul Giamatti is a kick-ass actor; track down Safe Men if you haven't seen it. And I never thought I'd see Lowell from TV's Wings nominated for an Oscar but, well, life has its little surprises. If you asked me about Finding Neverland, I'd be saying similar things--Not bad, but Top 5? Too bad the vaunted members of the Academy forgot Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind for the most part. Up next: Hotel Rwanda and The Aviator.

i'm with you. sideways was funny and there was some good acting in it, but 'best picture' - Nah-uh.

but, then what would qualify as best picture? i haven't seen the aviator or million dollar baby. they have to be better than this... right? somehow, i'm certain that hotel rwanda is oscar worthy (even though i haven't seen it), but that it won't get any oscar wins. ... only a few days left before oscar. --xenamidala
