I haven't seen all choices yet, so I can't give my final choice out of those 10 which are nominated. I hope I will have until the Oscars are announced. From what I've seen right now, referring to the favourites I would give Avatar and Basterds a slight edge to Hurt Locker (although HL is probably a slight favourite right now). My very personal pick is Julie & Julia though, too bad it's not nominated anywhere else than Streep for best actress. I agree that it was probably not the best in terms of screenplay and directing, but I really enjoyed watching it and found it extremely entertaining.

Extremely entertaining movies don't get nominated in best picture category.

Somebody's ''extremely entertaining'' is another's ''regular fare.''

True that, what vast majority of viewers find to be "extremely entertaining" for the Academy oldies it is a "regular fare" and I am not talking about J&J as I haven't watched it but in general. And that is why the Academy nominations have drifted away from the viewers choices.

As they probably should, if box office represents the viewers' choice.

I liked J&J a lot, because I like and know about food - and Meryl Streep captured Julia Child perfectly. I saw it, I was entertained by it, but apart from Streep's interpretation there is nothing else to consider it award worthy. I might have liked it even better had they left Julie on the cutting room floor and just given me 2 hours of Julia. So a nomination for Streep, but nothing else.

Actually, from the point of view of someone who never heard of Child, there would be no way to judge Streep's performance and for them the movie would be nothing more than ''regular.'' But that brings us back to ''viewers' choices.''

yes Julie&Julia is a mustsee, if you're interested in cookery
I liked the Amy Adams sequences too, of course not as much as the ones with Streep

Metropolis is one of the best movies ever made and one personal favorite. And in what's regarding old movies, I admit I am a fan, very rarely present movies impress me in the same way

No, no, I didn't mean that. Look, entertaining movies aka non-dramas don't get nominated for best picture. Unfortunately the Academy has decided that only traumatic dramas are good enough for nominations thus they have drifted away from what vast majority of viewers wants to watch and see being nominated for best picture. Look what happened in 2002 with LOTR:The Fellowship and how the Academy dealt with that. In the last 2-3 years I rarely watch Oscar nominated/winning movies, this year was an exception. Very few of the dramas that get nominated sound true to me and I can't shake off the impression they were made with the sole purpose for an Oscar nomination. This year it is even worse than ever.

Well I for one appreciate that there is not an automatic correlation between box office performance and Academy Awards nomination. American Idol does not pick best album of the year.

Yeah, respectable directors are all Oscar nomination whores. That really drives the creative process.

good old times when Germany has produced the best movies in the world. that was up to the 1920's. after that the war has changed everything and hollywood has risen fast in the 1930's banging out "the wizard of oz" and "gone with the wind" (both 1939), two of the best movies ever made.

i think the major problem of metropolis was that it was way ahead of it's time and so not many people have seen it in cinema. it was the first ever movie showing robots and things like that. the next similar movie was star wars 50 years (!!!) later.

you should watch the new and nearly complete version. the story is different from the old known version.
