2009 Oscar Nominations Are Out! And I'm Pissed!

What the hell? This is the biggest bunch of bull I've seen from the Academy. What the hell? The Dark Knight was completely left out from the top categories. No Best Picture, no Best Director, not even the bloody screenplay.

Sure it still got 8 nominations but it does not do The Dark Knight justice. You know why they left The Dark Knight out? Because it wasn't artsy enough or dramatic enough or maybe just because it's freaking based on a comic book. I mean, give credit where it's due man. The Dark Knight Is the best film of 2008. Nothing can even compare. It was the most talked about, it earned the most and it's the most raved about. This makes no freaking sense at all.

But I won't complain much about the other Best Picture nominees cause I've seen all of them and they're all great. Except for The Reader which totally doesn't deserve to be nominated. It's just not as good as the other films.

Now with The Dark Knight out of the running, I'm all for Slumdog to win. Anyways, here is the complete set of nominees and who I think should win and who I predict will win.
