I thought blind side deserved to be there...but inglorious basterds did not. I liked d9 as well but didnt think it was better than Star Trek. Havent seen avatar yet but from everything I heard, it is visually heart stopping but really lacked any good story. I know a lot of you say the same about Star Trek but I dont agree with that at all. I thought the story line held up well and was a good one. Guess I just look at things differently.
I expected it to get nominated but never expected it to win. I think they just refuse to put Star Trek in a best picture category.
