OSCAR WATCH: It's Complicated

Well, this one isn’t really a serious Oscar contender for Best Picture, but it got a Golden Globe nomination, so it’s noteworthy enough. The best chances at Oscar glory are Supporting Actor (Baldwin) and Original Screenplay, but it's unlikely. Ironically, Streep eliminated her own chances for a nomination, due to her superior performance in "Julie and Julia", for which she has basically secured an Best Actress nomination, if not the win. This film was a pleasant surprise. I thought it would be just another “run-of-the-mill” romantic comedy, but it actually had a pretty good story behind it. Like “(500) Days Of Summer”, this movie (as you can guess from its title) tried to show how complex love and relationships are. It was a delight from start to finish, with Meryl Streep her usual wonderful self and John Krasinski providing his great comedic timing as well. Add well-known funnyman Steve Martin in the mix and you get some truly hilarious moments. This movie has everything you want from a romantic comedy, with lots of laughs and those “aww” moments too. So if you like romantic comedies, I recommend “It’s Complicated”.
