Oscar Season: Those Whiny Snobs/Tin-Eared Populists Will/Will Not Salute 'Avatar'

The D Beast: "Another lock for an Oscar nomination…. the Academy has always had a tin ear when it comes to what a good script is. It's Crash and Star Wars rolled into one. How could it not be nominated?"

NY Mag: "We still don't see the King of the World reigning on another Oscar night…. While it may be true that only whiny snobs are still complaining about Avatar's extravisual shortcomings, it's worth noting that the Academy's current membership is comprised primarily of whiny snobs."

I am going to explode from this. Honest to GAHD. I don't know either!

I lived through the inevitability of Hillary Clinton! WHAT WAS NIGHT HAS BECOME DAY.

Hey, we didn't say that Avatar won't be nominated–it definitely will be! But it won't win. And the Daily Beast isn't predicting it'll win, just that it'll be nominated.

Am I a snob because I think the only reason Titanic won Best Picture was because it made cart loads of money?

No. You're a realist.
