And here I thought the Academy would split the difference on Avatar versus Hurt Locker. Further, the award for Best Score didn't indicate the Best Picture winner. In all, the Academy seems to have made a fair distribution of honors this year.It's great to see that Precious was not ignored - it's a tough movie to take emotionally.

I have to admit that I only saw a small portion of UP when it was in theaters, but I have a BD disc ready to view, courtesy of Netflix, on my entertainment console, that is, my $19.95 rolling stand from WalMart.
