In honor of the Oscars, Dave's Best Picture Award!








I just got some of my favorite Holga photos in from my favorite lab, Mpix.com. They did some true black and white prints for me that I really liked, on a special sale, so I have some extra prints. The prints are 8x10 inch with the images 6x6 centered on the print. So, here's the deal. Pick your favorite for the best picture Oscar, before the start of the Oscars at 8pm eastern time, on Sunday the 7th and post it in the Comments. If you pick the winning movie, I'll put you in a random drawing for one of the three prints above. I'll sign and date the print too. One guess per person. Good luck!

Movies are:
Avatar
The Blind Side
District 9
An Education
The Hurt Locker
Inglourious Basterds
Precious
A Serious Man
Up
Up in the Air

Avatar but I am only choosing it because it is one of only two on the list that I have seen...lol

I'll play. I have only seen Up and Avatar - they are both great movies but I doubt the best picture will go to either an animated or a sci-fi flick. So my vote is for "The Blind Side." - Love the three pictures Dave, especially the third one.

This is a tough one. Avatar is good, but has some weak points (amazing graphics, weak storyline). The Blind Side is strong all around, amazing reviews, based on a true story. Inglorious Bastards was good, but I don't think it was Oscars good. Up-SO super cute, great morals behind it, but when was the last time an animated film won best picture? I haven't seen some of these, but Precious has been winning awards left and right.

My vote is going to Precious, though Blind Side would be my second choice!

I have only seen 1 movie on this list (UP) so I don't have much to go on. I will choose The blind Side!

I have to go with Avatar, which was an awsome movie and the only I've seen on the list.

I'm going with 'The Blind Side'. Love that movie! :)

Kim Heyen said...

I would have to say Avatar

Stephanie said...

The Blind Side was awesome too...but I believe The Hurt Locker is going home with the Oscar!

I'm going completely for the dark horse here and voting for Hurt Locker. It has all the stuff Oscars love; innovative photography, low budget, grit, brutality and senseless war. What's not to love?

Since I haven't been to a movie in probably 15 years I threw a dart & it landed on A Serious Man so I'm going with The Hurt Locker instead. Rhiannon Haras

I will go out on a limb and suggest the Hurt Locker to win.

I am not a big movie goer, but I will pick 'Precious'. I have heard it is a very emotional movie.

Tomas Webb said...

Is the Oscars on at the moment? In Oz we don't get to see it until tonight I think?

I'll go for the Hurt Locker - if the draw is still open?

District 9 was awesome, but probably not an oscars style movie...

Love the print in the middle!

Dave said...

Sorry Tomas! You came in too late!

Dave said...

We've got 3 Avatars, 3 Blind Sides, 4 Hurt Lockers and 2 Precious'! Rhiannon: That's an interesting bit of logic you used to select your winner! LOL

WooHoo..Maybe I should throw darts more often..lol Now we'll see if Dave throws darts to see who's names they land on since there are 4 winners! Congrats to all! And a special Thanks to Dave for doing this! Rhiannon Haras

Tomas Webb said...

Yeah I meant to get to this earlier...ah well!

Looks like The Hurt Locker won?

Susan said...

Score! Yay Hurt Locker! Did I win? huh? huh?

Dave said...

Amy said...
