    As far as the main categories are concerned, I think it’s very up in the air, though I did like Drive very much. I think Ryan Gosling was excellent, as usual, and was very impressed with Albert Brooks and the direction.

    The surest pick this year is even listed though.

    I love animated shorts and, by far, the best one out this year is Flowers for Jupiter by Chris Mars. The art is amazing and macabre, and the story is similarly beautiful, breathtaking and heartbreaking. Even if you don’t usually like the shorts, it’s an underrated category and Flowers for Jupiter is the best I’ve seen in years!

    the tree of life was the best film of 2011, followed by hugo, i thought the artist was highly overrated but when you have harvey weistein backin it anything can win, the tree of life was an absolute masterpiece at least it was nominated, i was so glad clooney did not win, the descendants was a tasteless awful film, was glad to see meryl finally get her due, but the best female performance out of the nominees was glen close, and as far as best male performance i thougt demian bichir gave the best performance, the best male performance of the year however was michael shannon or woody harolson imo they should have been nominated instead of clooney and brad pitt, overall a good oscars but in a sub par year for film, i thought it was a good show and glad to see billy back
