The Oscars became dead to me when they snubbed “The Dark Knight”, but I would tip my hat to them for nominating “Up”. One of Pixar’s best by far.

I think “Up” might actually stand a chance. I mean, beyond the fact that I have the house tattooed on my butt.

They’ve expanded the Best Picture list to 10…so “Up” had BETTER be in there. It was easily a top 10 picture this year.
