Oscars in Ten Words or Less...Plus More!

Best Picture Nominees in 10 Words or Less

Black Swan: Simply put, it was weird. Don't watch with your mother.
The Fighter: Awesome acting, albeit unexpected.
Inception: My brain still hurts. 
The Kids Are All Right: Reflection on the modern world. Interesting but slow at times.
The King's Speech: Brilliant acting, entertaining, deserving of nominations, too many English accents
127 Hours: It has James Franco in it, good enough for me.
The Social Network: Fun, fast-paced, but Eisenberg didn't really have to act.
Toy Story 3: Makes you feel like a kid again... and cry.
True Grit: It's no John Wayne, but not bad for a remake.

Now get your bowl of popcorn & your snuggie and cozy up in front of the TV, because let's be honest this is probably the most important day of the year. Forget your homework, deadlines, meetings, appointments, household chores, and anything else you need to prepare for Monday. This only comes once a year! I plan on taking a personal day tomorrow simply to scrutinize everyone's outfits and replay the night on my DVR.
