The Oscars are on tonight. This would be a good time to pull out your awards show drinking game manual.
And so it is, we have reached the end of 2011's awards season. We can finally put the past year behind us knowing smugly that whatever movie wins best picture will be at the top of our Netflix queue by the end of the night, and we can stop pretending we are into movies about British royalty in order to mask our real excitement over next summer's dumbest action movies. Although, we have to hand it to the Academy this year, most of the nominees for best picture did actually attract decent crowds beyond the art house.
