The 82nd Academy Awards Nominees

The 82nd Academy Award Nominees were announced earlier today. This is the time of year I try to watch all the movies nominated in the following categories especially:

Best Picture
Actor in a Leading Role
Actress in a Leading Role

In 2001, The Academy nominated Denzel Washington for Actor in A Leading Role (Training Day) and Halle Berry for Actress in Leading Role (Monster's Ball). I watched both movies before the award show. I also watched other movies in the category that year, to have an unbiased opinion about who should win Oscar. Ever since Halle & Denzel won and I participated in the process, I've found a new love and respect for the Academy.
I love the "Best Picture" category.
I usually see ALL the movies in the category.
Here are the 82nd Academy Award Nominees

“Avatar”
“The Blind Side”
“District 9”
“An Education”
“The Hurt Locker”
“Inglourious Basterds”
“Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire”
“A Serious Man”
“Up”
“Up in the Air”

IDEA:
Make this the time to go to the movies. At least watch all the movies nominated in the "Best Picture" category. Host an Oscars or Hollywood Theme Party.

Definitely worth seeing the nominees in the following categories:

... The following categories only appeal to me if a particular movie, actor or actress interests me or gets media buzz.
