Are You Tired of Oscar Bait?

Studios do it every year: Wait until November to start releasing their big awards contenders, so that by January we're begging the Farrelly Brothers for their next sophomoric dude comedy. But today is a heavy one even for the pre-Oscar season, with Another Year, Blue Valentine, and Biutiful all weeping/raging/nuancing their way into theaters. After weeks of living with The King's Speech, Black Swan, and The Fighter, do you have it in you to go back for more? When is enough enough?
