Oscar nominations were announced this morning and I'm thrilled that District 9 is up for Best Picture.
Don't get me wrong - I don't have any delusions that it stands a chance of winning. But if a nomination will bring it to a wider audience, I'll be satisfied.
If you haven't seen District 9 yet, go rent it right now. That's what a science fiction movie should look like. It's futuristic but not unrecognizable. It's thoughtful but not preachy. It has super-cool special effects but still manages to be completely believable. God, I love that movie.
