The nominees have been announced — including all 10 for best picture this year. I have to say, after *finally* joining the masses and seeing Avatar on Friday night, that film has got to be it. There’s no way James Cameron can lose. That film is a work of genius, from the story, to the cast, to the 3-D imagery, to the score. And let’s not forget Cameron’s unfaltering dedication to authenticity in his work: he hired Paul Frommer, a linguist at the University of Southern California, to create the Na’vi language spoken in the film. Like I said, he just can’t lose.
