The Red Carpet Report, Mingle Media TV’s “Oscar Insider” on Best Picture Nominees

In this ongoing series of blog posts, we’ll be sharing the observations of our Entertainment Reporter, Kristyn Burtt, with you between now and the Oscars. We’ll be covering the Oscars from set up to day of at the Kodak Theatre and will be on the red carpet talking to celebrities on the day of the event as well.

Today, we’re looking at Best Picture Nominees that are up for the Oscar – and this is one that we believe will also be the Best Director too. Let us know your thoughts by posting here on our blog.

New rules – each movie had to had 5% of the vote in the #1 slot to be considered for Best Picture. We narrow it down to The Artist or The Help. The Help won big at the SAG Awards but as Kristyn points out the SAG Awards is about acting not that’s not a best picture. We all loved The Artist due to the romance and nostalgia celebrating movies – if you haven’t seen it, there’s still time.
