I hope to see Winter's Bone soon now that it's back in cinemas.

I severely doubt I will watch 127 Hours.

Are we to assume that Toy Story 3 places at #10 on your list Damien?

I would never put such a thing on my ballot. The 10th spot would be blank.

I think we are to assume that it doesn't get a vote at all.

...of the nominees, I would cite the top four as either a strong three stars or higher, the rest are in the high to low two-and-a-half stars. Hard to really get worked up one way or another. Contrast that with last year's:

****
1. A Serious Man
***1/2
2. The Hurt Locker
3. Up in the Air
4. Up
5. Inglourious Basterds
6. District 9
***
7. Avatar
**
8. An Education
*1/2
9. Precious: Based on the Push by Sapphire
H/S The Blind Side

Last year had a far wider spectrum of quality in my opinion. So wide, I actively bailed on watching one of them.
