Oscar Nominees Announced, and We Post our Picks...

The Oscars were announced yesterday morning with more expectations and few surprises. Perhaps the most interesting news is James Cameron's sci-fi epic Avatar going up against The Hurt Locker, directed by his ex-wife, Kathryn Bigelow. The films are leading the pack with nine nominations each, including Best Director and Best Picture. More interesting is that this is the first time a woman has been nominated for Best Director. Head on over to MRQE to catch up with all the nominees, and view their respective MRQE Metric scores.
