Now I have officially seen all the movies nominated for Best Picture.
First the movie. This was just the most disturbing episode of “Reading Rainbow” ever. I was just waiting for LeVar Burton to show up at the end and say, ‘See kids, learning to read is important.”
I’m not sure whether I thought Kate Winslet was better here or Revolutionary Road. The latter was more showy while this performance was more subtle. Either way, she deserved a nomination. I thought David Kross (young Michael Berg) should have been nominated as well or at least his performance was worthy of consideration.
Now onto the Best Picture race, I take back my annoyance at The Reader being nominated for best picture out of nowhere but this is who I think should be nominated:
I think The Curious Case of Benjamin Button should have been nominated for Best Director (David Fincher) but that’s it.
