The Oscar Noms
Early this morning, the Oscar nominations were announced by Anne Hathaway and some dude. I was stunned and shocked by the ten (10!) noms in the Best Picture category. That is way too many and we all know that Avatar will take the statue. Not because it's worthy of the prize, but rather that James Cameron will defeat his ex. Yes, that's right, this is a battle between ex's. James Cameron vs. Kathryn Bigelow. Once married, now challengers on the field of cinematography. I sense that Kate will receive two or three statues, but Jim will collect all the rest. This is the story for the show and it will be mentioned more than once by the entertainment media, even on Oscar night. The host may even make a joke or two about Jim and Kate in the opening. Just wait and see.
