When Pete Docter, director of the Oscar-nominated animated film Up, was coming to New York City to accept an award, I got an e-mail letting me know about it: "Would you like to interview him?" Hell, yeah!
I had been rooting for The Blind Side and predicting its inclusion since Thanksgiving weekend. First of all, it's a damn good movie and second of all, it's just the kind of old-school big-studio drama that we don't get nearly enough of.
Robert Downey Jr. won the award for Best Actor in a Movie Abomination for pretending to play Sherlock Holmes. These awards really are meaningless. He shouldn't be rewarded for that film; he should be punished.
Due to the fact that the top two films (Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) are literally tied at $42.5 million, I'm ignoring the rankings and just concentrating on the numbers.
