Out of the 11 films nominated for the top three Oscar categories (picture, actor, actress), I have seen only one, nominated for one Oscar among those categories (Slumdog Millionaire). So there’s no way that I can root for anything. And that’s one more film than my wife has seen.
On the other hand, I’ve seen all three films nominated for Best Animated Feature. That’s what comes of living with a four year old.
Really, of all the non-animated picture nominations, the only things I’ve seen are Slumdog, Dark Knight, and Tropic Thunder… and the last was seen on DVD.
