Our friend Kimberly Wetherell returns with her second annual Six-Word Oscar Review roundup on The Nervous Breakdown blog. Wetherell, a fillmmaker herself, doesn’t just flip off six for the Best Picture nominees, she’s penned six-word review for all the films in all the major categories. For its nomination for Original Screenplay, she sums up The Hurt Locker as, “This script actually stirred my patriotism.” For Up in the Air-nominated Supporting Actress Anna Kendrick, she offers, “Called Clooney ‘old.’ That was funny.” For Best Picture, Inglourious Basterds is boiled down to its six-word essence: “Tarantino + Pitt + Nazi-killing Jews = Comic perfection.” And the dueling Best Director frontrunners?
James Cameron: “Billions at box office buys ANYTHING.”
Kathryn Bigelow: “Proof that women belong behind cameras.”
Give her full list a spin over at the The Nervous Breakdown.
