I'm going to be pulling for Jeremy Renner of the Hurt Locker for best actor.I love no names upsetting the big name actors.

I really don't care much about the Oscars. Too political.

Again, I don't care about the Oscars. It's like asking me to make a prediction about the Pro Bowl.

If I had to pick a movie I was rooting to win Best Picture, it would be District 9 since that and Avatar are the only nominees I've seen. But I really don't care. And unless something crazy happens and shows up on YouTube the next day, I won't spend more than 8 seconds from here on out in the rest of 2010 thinking about the Oscars, or any film/tv awards. Award shows are pretty much the most pointless aspect of America.

I guess what I am getting at had their not been an Oscar's and just for the sake of who you thought was the best movie of 2009,actor,actress,supporting actor and actress and director. Never mind the awards just who you thought was the best is all I was asking.

Sorry scout, but to give those opinions would be a disservice, since I've only seen a small percentage of the movies that were released, and most of the movies I saw weren't that good.

And I'm too lazy and uncaring to spend 30 minutes to an hour thinking about all of the movies I've seen this year and who were the best performances in each of them to come up with these pseudo-list.
