With the recent expansion of the best picture category, this year’s Academy Awards have made room for normally-ignored Nerd properties to make a big impact on the Oscars. Announced nominees include two sci-fi films (Avatar, District 9), a cartoon (Up), and uber-film nerd Quentin Tarantino‘s latest opus (Inglourious Basterds).
Seriously. This is as Nerdy as the Oscars get. But don’t worry, there’s still plenty of opportunity for shitty choices (The Blind Side), to beat all of them. Besides, there’s only one awards show for me: The Latin Grammys.
