    Lol, agree @Zany.

    @Dave, glad we see eye to eye man. I can't imagine Nolan's relief when it was green-lit. He wrote the treatment for it when he was 16. He better get best original screenplay. Lol. I am also bummed about TWD not getting any credit, probably because its unorthodox.

    @Movie I agree.

    @Narrator fully agreed. Inception's idea is simply marvelous and taking that sort of risk with an original story is worth a win. With a huge box office success as well, they should get that.

    For best animated feature-I'd have to say HTTYD has an chance because of its concept and its success, but if Toy Story 3 wins, I will have to call foul because they are just focusing on its box office success then.

    I am furious however at the fact that "The walking dead" has not received a nomination since it is the show that has garnered a huge audience and its concept is astounding.

    Nolan will most likely win for "best original screenplay" he has been winning that so far

    I hate how they choose Desp*cable Me in the best Animated feature category. TOY Story 3 and HTTYD are well deserving of the nominations but i think that the third nomination should have went to Tangled.

    @Raph, although I agree with your picks for best films, this is simply about producing.

    In that case, I must say Inception still gets it. To pitch to the studio such a crazy idea, and get them on-board, and round everything up, it's crazy. Not to mention Nolan had to write and direct as well, showing he's an all around face man. I also say this because, sadly, he'll probably lose out this year at the Oscars for Best Director.

    for me Inception was the best of the year, but if The Social Network win it's ok for me, this was a great movie too.
