Should Inception Win an Oscar? 2010-07-19 09:30:00

Do You Think Inception Is Oscar-Worthy?

Inception handily won the box office race over the weekend, which means that many of you waited in the long lines to catch a glimpse of the mind-blowing story. There's no doubt that the movie is entertaining, but tell me theater-goers, does it deserve Oscars?

Let's break it down: for one, Leonardo DiCaprio is long overdue for a golden statuette (as many of you were quick to point out), but his character isn't necessarily more enthralling than his previous work. Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks great scaling walls, and Ellen Page does a nice turn, but come award season, they won't be all that memorable. That honor goes to Christopher Nolan's direction, which supplied the innovative chase scenes and immense landscapes. Will he get an Oscar nomination? Perhaps. Will the special effects? Seems even more likely. As for the film, now that the Academy has upped its number of potential Best Picture contenders, perhaps it will earn a spot on the nomination list. I know we've still got a long ways to go and plenty more movies to see, but after your first viewing, do you think Inception has a chance in the Oscar race?

I hope so! Leo (again) was amazing! And the whole ensemble of actors, the layers of story, everything. I hope it doesn't get overlooked.

Confession: I went to a late night viewing and fell asleep through a lot of it. Now I feel bad because everyone's talking about how good it is
