Outlook to the Academy Awards: Best Picture Nominee “District 9″

This will surely be the most underrated movie of the year. After being an early skeptic of the movie, I saw it on DVD after its run in theaters. Expecting a bloody, action packed, shoot em’ up movie, I was instead treated to an intelligent drama that made you question life. The movie really tears at human emotion and is able to cause genuine sadness over the treatment of aliens.

Sharlto Copley gave an extremely underrated performance as Wikus Van De Merwe, a role he was not nominated for. Although he would not of won in that category, it would of been nice to see him honored with the nomination.¬†Unfortunately, this movie will not receive any awards at the Oscars. The technical categories are sure to be swept by “Avatar” leaving “District 9″ without an award in 2010.
