I really didn't care for Django at all but that was to be expected. I could do without that movie being nominated - besides Christoph Waltz <3. I think the Academy did a really good job with their nominations this year.
Edit: Ahh, I see. SLP is in it for Adapted. Awesome. Moonrise Kingdom for original, for me!

Just got out of Zero Dark Thirty. Meh. I mean it was good, but so was Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and that didn't win best picture.
I don't even know who I'm rooting for anymore. I think of the nominees, the one with the most balls was Les Mis. The Master is the movie that I've thought of the most, and I probably enjoyed watching Moonrise Kingdom more than anything else this year. Those might be my top three.
So uh...has anyone seen Amour yet? It hasn't settled yet (although I've spent a lot of time letting it sink in, it's almost impossible to not do this), but I'm pretty sure it's my favorite movie of the year and it's likely that I will never watch it again. If you've ever been interested in Haneke but never connected with his movies, this will change that. It's everything great about Haneke combined with some of the most heartbreaking humanity I've ever seen in a movie.
I wish I could talk about it without using a bunch of hyperbole but it just completely blew me away.

In the words of my brother in law, "J.J. Abrams doing the new Star Wars? At least we'll be able to answer a question that has until now been only theoretical: exactly how many lens flares can one get off of a lightsaber in full motion?"
