Thought Avatar was a good film but not, hopefully, best picture. The material/plot line/acting wasn't unique although the technical was groundbreaking. Thus I hope the academy doesn't give it the best picture purely on technical grounds. I agree, Precious is my sleeper also. Just watched Color Purple and was struck at its similarity to Precious. As an aside, which I'm so prone to do, just finished reading Roots. Started out reading it to see if I could glean any geneology info from it (my ancestors were plantation owners in Spotslyvannia county in VA and also in North Carolina. I really enjoyed reading this and later the story of Haley's research into discovering his family's roots.
