Going back to my first home base. . .

My blog suspension has been lifted! I’m already back at The Final Oscar!

So, I would make this blog inactive and I will use this again if there would be any chance that I get suspended again.

For now,

this is the last post in this blog.

All following posts of Malcolm Gunderson will be posted at his real homebase,


The Performance Profiles will surely continue.

Again, I am really thankful for those very understanding readers and bloggers that helped me when I had to transfer.

I had to go back home, but it was a nice fun having this blog.


INTRODUCTION – Best Motion Picture: 2009

After watching the last two films that I need to for me to have this year, I decided to do this since I know everyone can share their opinions on the movies since it’s very recent. So, the nominees are:


The Blind Side

District 9

An Education

The Hurt Locker

Inglourious Basterds

Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire

A Serious Man


Up in the Air


Which one will be my pick?


Would it be the sci-fi epic? Or the underdog sports drama? Or the mockumentary sci-fi? Or the coming-of-age British drama? Or the war thriller? Or the historical epic thriller-comedy? Or the grim drama? Or the Jewish black comedy? Or the animated fantasy? Or the bleak drama-dark comedy?


I have already decided on this months ago, but who could say? It’s a fierce year.


The system will be by lottery, and the last would be the Best Picture Winner, The Hurt Locker.


So, dear reader, would I go with the Academy? Or would I go with an another nominee?

Please visit my new blog!

This could be unknown to some, but when I still have my original blog, I used to have The Final Oscar Presents: PERFORMANCE REVIEWS. Unfortunately, the blog got suspended (and so was my account). So, I’m here to say that I have already made its space.

The blog is Performance Profiles.

I used a different account, just to be safe, so if they would suspend it, this blog wouldn’t be affected. I learned from my mistakes, so here it is.

Please take a visit while I haven’t started on posting the profiles so you can drop suggestions.

Anyway, you can contact me at thefinaloscar@gmail.com or mylastoscar@gmail.com.
