I'm used to the annual blow to my ego called the Oscars. Each year, I eagerly review the nominations with fingers crossed...hoping to find a couple of films to root for amongst the list of movies I have never even heard of.
Well, I am sad to say that this year I have seen NONE of the films in the big categories. In fact, you have to drop all the way to "sound mixing", "sound editing", and "visual effects" to see the only nominated films that I have seen: Transformers and The Bourne Ultimatum.
That's it. Two films.
Oscar is looking down from his lofty golden pedestal at me.
