I have a few beefs like, how did Nine, The Hurt Locker, and An Education only get one nomination outside of ensemble, Up in the Air got 3! and yet couldn't get an ensemble mention. That being said, its still the top contender for the prize, and I think we're going to start seeing a Hurt Locker backlash, especially in this year when there are bigger and better projects out there. That being said. I have two more exams and will be home tomorrow night after a long semester. I will then have a couple weeks to collect my thoughts, and continue on Grammy Predictions, Talk about the state of the race for the Oscars, and more importantly...rest!
