Here Come the Os­cars

Albuquerque Journal - Parade - - PARADE PICKS -

With the Academy Awards just a week away, here’s your chance to see some of the nom­i­nees on DVD. Meryl Steep (r) is up for Best Ac­tress for her por­trayal of the beloved culi­nary whiz Ju­lia Child in Julie & Ju­lia. She’s dead-on and a de­light to watch. In the Coen Broth­ers’ A Se­ri­ous Man— nom­i­nated for Best Pic­ture— a Jewish pro­fes­sor’s life un­rav­els in the sub­urbs of Min­nesota in the 1960s. It’s a won­der­fully odd, dark com­edy about faith, fam­ily, and moral­ity. Also up for Best Pic­ture is Kathryn Bigelow’s tense, gritty The Hurt Locker, about an Army bomb squad try­ing to sur­vive its tour in Iraq.
