I was surprised to find Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close on the Best Picture list since I thought it was considered an over-sentimental depiction of the 9/11 events. I'm definitely excited to see The Tree of Life recognized (though I doubt it has a chance to win) but I'm not sure about the others yet. In this last month I'll watch them all and post my reviews of them, eventually leading up to my predictions and preferences. Let the Road to the Oscars begin!
