Little Miss Sunshine and Cars are the only ones I've seen. Little Miss Sunshine was good, but the other crop have to be pretty mediocre for it to win "Best Picture."

Cars was lame.

Here's just one (out of the many) reasons showing why this, and the Academy Awards are a meaningless hwood  masturbatory frenzy of self-congratulatory back-patting.

Borat- hilarious, smart film.  Screenplay ?  It was 90+% improvised.

The sad part is, half this board hates that show.  Don't know why, there is so much good material there.

I don't hate it, I just never was able to get into it. I thought the show would have been much better sans the title character. And, no, I don't understand the reference in the picture.
