    Sweet list this year. I don't think I ever remember a PG film leading the Oscars in the entire span of my life. And I haven't seen it yet! *facepalm* :P

    84th time my name is not on this list. i really think that the oscars are political with there nominations.

    @moviegeek Then I'm lost why they choose Puss in Boots over TinTin. Best Animation is going to Rango (I'm all for that) but the category is going to be less tense now. Weird that TinTin won the Best Animation in PGA.

    Oh, and I still need to see "Hugo" too.

    I do choose "Rango" for Best Animated Feature, but I really think "Tintin" deserves a nomination too.

  10. T. King (Red Camera Man)

    "Harry Potter 7 (Part 2)" deserves more nominations, but at least it might win for Best Visual Effects. Either that or "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" will (still love them both though). I haven't even seen "War Horse" yet, but I will sometime.

    @JennyL They didn't deem it ineligible. It was in the lot of films to be considered for nomination so it was eligible. BUT, I'm VERY happy to see it's score recognized. It's my favorite score of this year. Williams outdoes himself with this AND War Horse.

    Huh. I guess I'll be going to sleep early that night.

  14. JennyL

    *sigh* I guess Academy decide TinTin is not eligible due to the motion capturing because I think it should be nominated over Puss in Boots. Sad that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is not in BP category. Jonah Hill does not deserve to be in that spot.

    Man, f*ck the academy awards.....they always snub the films that deserve it. You are telling me that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II both dont deserve to get nominated for Best Picture, but films that completely underperform or are overrated, even films like Warhorse, do??
    Say what you want about the Harry Potter films being nominated.....but even most critics agree that the last film in particular deserved to be nominated.

    While I liked Warhorse, and I friggin love Spielberg, that film, by no stretch of the imagination, lived up to the expectations I had for it. The only category that I feel it deserves to be nominated in is Cinematography, because it looked phenomenal.

    Therefore, in terms of Best Picture, the only film that I feel truly deserves it, that was actually nominated, is Hugo.

    As always, the nominations disappoint greatly. There are just too many politics involved in these awards for me to be emotionally invested in who actually wins.

    Potter, Dragon Tattoo, Drive, 50/50 & Warrior got snubbed in my opinion.

    I don't understand how we live in a world where Jonah Hill gets a nod for acting but David Fincher gets ignored for directing. Moneyball was great and I'm pulling for Brad Pitt, but this ridiculous.

    I love how "The Help" gets several nods...but nothing for Tate Taylor who directed "The Help"....!!

    What ....did the film direct it self!??

  26. CelluloidDreams

    I still can't believe that: "Midnight in Paris" got two nods for Picture and director.....the film wasn't that good....the first 1/2 was brilliant...the last 20 minutes really were disappointing...!!

    The only reason "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" got any nods is that it's a 9/11 film..!
    Still can't believe that Rooney Mara got it for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"...her performance must have been something in a remake! Only other film besides "Albert Nobbs" I haven't seen!

  27. Forrestgump1

    Im so frustrated ! for one where the hell is TinTin in the Best Animated Film category?!?!?! and how does a movie like "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" (I'm sure its a great movie don't get me wrong) but spotting a 46% on Rotten Tomatoes! ..and getting a nod in Best Picture over DRIVE?!?!? OR GWTDT!!!!!!! ..i am happy for Rooney Mara she deserves her nod along with Jonah Hill .. as i want them to win .. they will not .. cause that just how the academy is. TinTin is the biggest shocker for me .. Warrior got snubbed .. im glad Nolte got some honor .. Warrior was a great film that got under-looked by people. This is the worst nods yet ...

  28. ROFLitschristian

    And Harry Potter wasn't nominated because it's a kids'/fantasy film... Hugo's nominated (kids') and all Lord of the Rings were nominated (fantasy). Eat my sh*t, Oscars.

  30. The Russian

    Oddly enough, the nominees and those films that won for best poster and trailer are almost identical... The Film Informant had the 2011 TFI Awards and the posters and trailers that won were almost identical to the nomination list...
    Just shows that when you produce quality marketing material, you tend to produce good movies...
