"I hated this so much. It also has a very good shot of winning." [The Awl]
Even some of the ones I really like I had to take revenge upon first to not at some level also loathe -- Tree of Life (thanks for the supping of Father; I needed it, but it was still born out of trepidation towards Mother, as, seemingly, most all flms this year were) and Melancholia (Galactus drained the oncoming planet just as it was about to hit, and then Von Trier also for his total willingness to let TWO planets go to waste, and thinking this fun -- COMEDY!!!). The Oscars might end up feeling like a whole lot of people laughing at our expense, a gruesome scene out of Animal Farm. I'm tempted just to rewatch Mission Impossible 4 -- good sure company, that.

Not a bad plan. I'm dreading the show, honestly.
I don't plan on watching at all. I already know what the best picture of the year was, I don't need the cool kids to tell me. I'll probably go camping or something, you know, get back with nature. Also, I don't know why google keeps on showing me ads for divorce lawyers...I've never even been married.
Those fourteen words are my exact thoughts on The Descendants and Best Adapted Screenplay.
