Poor Bill Murray--I think the only reason he did this movie was to try and net Best Actor, and he has the misfortune of going up against DDL for the Lincoln film. I still think Bill Murray got hosed in 2003.
Other than the 10 minutes of John Goodman, what was good about Flight? Maybe my friends just built it up too much, but that movie was highly disappointing to me, and I had to fight the urge to walk out halfway through it.
Goodman was hilarious but I thought it was a great story with a lot of really good acting.

I don't like to rate movies. Therefore I never watch the Oscars. I think rating music is especially ignorant and the Grammys are the greatest sham that ever existed. The second is American Idol. Sports were made to have winners and losers. Music, art, and literature was never meant to have winners and losers, best sellers maybe. The most popular generally stays off my shopping lists. I hope this doesn't make anyone think.
It made me think how stupid that all sounded. Movies can be great on many levels and for the most part the Oscars do an ok job of celebrating the films that "break the mold" or go above and beyond. The Grammys on the other hand are a popularity contest.
However to say that music and film can't be rated, judged, criticized is idiotic. Its like saying Led Zeppelin and Nickelback are on the same level because they both make music that someone enjoys.
