Sandra Bullock in The Blind SideAs I have been predicting here for weeks, the decision by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to double the number of Best Picture nominees from 5 to 10 would put some unworthy movies on the ballot -- and the mischief was worse than I imagined. Among the 10 movies that will forever be identified as Academy Award nominees is 'The Blind Side,' one of the lowest critically rated movies ever to appear on the ballot.

On, where the nation's leading professional movie critics' reviews are gathered and weighted, 'The Blind Side' scored just 54 out of 100. Sandra Bullock's nomination for Best Actress for 'The Blind Side' was a generous enough nod to that audience-pleasing blockbuster.
