My Oscars v2.0

I was watching the Goodnight, and Good Luck a few days ago (the first time I had seen it since seeing it at the cinema) and wondered how it failed to win the best picture oscar.  With this in mind I decided to revise the My Oscars blog.  Back in July last year I compiled a list of the movies I would have given the Oscar to over the last ten years.  This is a variation on the same idea limited to the nominated films.
