Two Jews On Film Give Their Oscar Pics

  • Feb 23, 2011
Rating:
+5
As usual the 'Two Jews On Film' disagree on some of their Oscar picks..but the one thing we do agree on...2010 was a great year for movies. The nominated films and performances inspired us, entertained us and in some cases enlightened us.

 With 'The King's Speech', 'The Fighter' and '127 Hours' we felt what it takes to overcome obstacles.  
In 'True Grit' we experienced once again The Coen Bros brilliant take on another genre.  And of course there was that funny, insightful film ('The Kids Are Alright') that redefined what it is to be a family.
 'Toy Story 3'...well that was Pixar at its best.

 Who could ever imagine an animated film touching our hearts as this film did.  We musn't forget the crazy ballernina ('The Black Swan') that kept us up nights...Or that small independent film, 'Winter's Bone' that somehow got noticed in the midst of all these big budget films.  

I know the Oscars are all about the Best Picture...Best Actor...but in the end, the Academy members vote for their own personal favorites.  So whether my favorites win or lose, come Sunday I'll be at my annual Oscar party, watching Anne Hathaway and James Franco do their thing and hope that the speeches won't be too long or too boring.

 Every once in awhile, something surprising happens at the Oscars...something you remember long after the awards have been given out...And maybe this coming Sunday, will be no exception.

I don't necessarily agree with you on the fact that 2010 was a good year for film. There were some goodies (Inception, Black Swan, True Grit....). BUT, I think you two are adorable and really enjoyed watching the video. I agree with you, Joan, that Natalie Portman will take home the Oscar (she was just AMAZING) but, I have an inkling that John is right on about Geoffrey Rush. Anyhow- I moved your review to the Oscar Nominations topic so that it can get the attention it deserves. As always, great review, you two! I'm SO happy that you're here on Lunch with us.

Oscar Nominees were announced and already we're seeing the same discussions of snubs, what people think will win etc.  I enjoy watching the Oscars and I enjoy the discussions.  Because I enjoy guessing and then eventually talking about what got snubbed or what have you.  It's fun stuff.  If it wasn't fun most of us wouldn't do it.  We wouldn't even pay attention to the nominees and then think, "Oh I hate the Academy Awards!"  If you hated …

It's Oscar Season. Followers of this blog know that I love this time of year and like to draw it out as much as possible. So while I do plan on doing a post on my predictions for the awards, first here are a few things that caught my eye.   I knew that The King's Speech would be Oscar bait, I didn't think it would be leading the pack with 12 nominations. I thought it would be The Social Network. But the movie leading with all the best picture awards already didn't …
