    @moviegeek I'm guessing because of Tom Hanks

    It's either Transformers or Rise of the Apes for visuals, and again Transformers for sound editing, simply because of its previous win, but that's not for certain.I think it will be John Williams vs The Artist, but my money is on Williams. It might be either Streep or Glen for make up.

    Wait, how the hell did "Puss in Boots" supersede "Tintin?" Puss was pus at best. It really sucked!

    Watching War Horse and The Artist back-to-back right now. I need to decide which one to root for, considering DT isn't up there.

    @felipe-11 It's not about how versitile an actor can be, it's about what he/she can bring to a movie. Does the performance help the movie out or even carry the movie. In the case of The Descendants, George Clooney carried that movie with him. One great thing about his performances is how he can be incredibly mad through his tone and eyes without having to shout out.

    And pardon my French here, but what kind of f*ckhead would even compare Seth Rogen to George Clooney?

    Wow. Worst nomination list I've seen in a while. And I'm sorry but what kind of world do we live in where Jonah Hill and George Clooney get nominated and Andy Serkis doesn't?

    I'm guessing Tintin wasn't nominated because it was motion-captured instead of traditionally animated by CGI, like Pixar movies are. They probably considered it a 'live action' movie and that's why it didn't make it.

    The Descendants was good but it was by far the most overrated movie of the year, and George Clooney is simply the most overrated actor of all time. The Help was good, but not Best Picture worthy. Extremely Loud was great, it's definitely a solid contender, so was Tree Of Life.

    @SpaceCowboy I mean no disrespect to your opinion, I just want to try to understand from your point of view, because I simply can't; how is George Clooney a great actor?

    How was he great in this film? How was his performance ANY different than it was on Ocean's Eleven, or Up in the Air, or Three Kings? He delivers the exact same performance movie through movie. He's not even acting anymore, he practically stands in front of the camera being himself and portraying slightly different emotions.

    Don't get me wrong, he's believable and likable and usually picks good movies, but even Seth Rogen is a better actor.

    Surprising, no animation nom for Tin Tin? And a best pic nom for Extremely Loud? No supporting nom for Albert Brooks? Hmmm...

    3 years agoby @julianromanFlag

  13. thedude-abides

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I certainly think that played a factor. The Coens are to directing what George Clooney is to acting as far as the Academy's concerned. They're the darlings.

    I honestly think "Star spangled man" from "Captain America" shouldve been up there for best original song though....

    3 years agoby @daveactor7Flag

  15. Nicholaus XX

    @thedude-abides -- Ha, same to you, man. That makes much more sense, and I also think they place favoritism on directors, no matter how good or bad their movie is. I use this case and would like to use "No Country For Old Men" and "There Will Be Blood" as a prime example.

    Paul Thomas Anderson might've had an over all better film, but the Cohen brothers were the competitor - the freakin' directors of "Fargo"! Which is how they might've resolved their decision, or not...

    Oscar= EPIC FAIL. I mean Dark knight made change there rules . You would think it work but Star Trek diddn't get nod. An now Drive , Girl with a Dragon tatoo and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 got snubbed. But they put in tree of life and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. They both were averge movies at best. Ryan Gosling got snubbed for Drive and Ides of March. Why don't they admit they suck.

    Damn John Williams nominated twice in the same category that makes 47 oscar nominations in his life lol

    To all complaining about Leonardo Dicaprio not in the run, I thought he did okay, but it certainly was not his best best performance, he still needs to work on his skills a bit more

  22. thedude-abides

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx No, you're 100% correct. I hate the Academy exactly for that vey reason. I used to place a lot of stock in these things before I started paying closer attention to them. The Academy doesn't pick the 'Best Picture' of each year, contrary to what the category's title might suggest; they pick the movie they feel they can live with representing what they stand for. Illogical Bias personified. Well said, man.

    I see that Transformers Dark of the Moon is being nominated for Visual Effects. I hope it wins.

  24. Nicholaus XX

    @thedude-abides --But that's the point. the Academy Awards shouldn't have a "kind of film" -- That's the biggest flaw in their system. They should award great cinema - it doesn't matter if it's based on a comic book, or if it's directed by Quentin Tarantino, or even if it's gratuitously violent. The Academy Awards SHOULD remove their illogical bias trademarks and live up to their name, not jump in the Golden Globes bandwagon!

  25. thedude-abides

    My top 5 biggest Oscar snubs:

    1. Drive -- best picture
    2. Steven Spielberg -- best director, War Horse
    3. Leo -- lead actor, J. Edgar
    4. Charlize Theron -- lead actress, Young Adult
    5. Albert Brooks -- supporting actor, Drive

  26. Nicholaus XX

    @dan1 -- True, but I believe they did well in the acting department, etc. Even though I haven't seen "Drive" or "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo", I'm tempted to give this a thumbs down just from the fact that they didn't at least nominate them. Let's all be realistic, "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" has a rotten percentage on Rotten Tomatoes and it doesn't even look remotely close to being an Oscar contender, so why the f*ck is it nominated for best picture? I truly think it's because they didn't want to nominate the aforementioned films, especially because of how violent they are. Bullsh*t, if you ask me.

    @Travis-Patterson-14552545 -- The more I get into movies, the more I'm beginning to dislike the Academy Awards. In 2010, "The Hurt Locker" won best picture. The winner should've been "Inglourious Basterds" or "District 9"; two films that are so much more superior than "The Hurt Locker" that it's not even funny. That was the first, major flaw I found in the Academy Awards. Oh, and the fact that "The Dark Knight" wasn't even nominated.

    Best Picture: "The Artist"
    Best Actor: George Clooney - The Descendants

    @corey Clooney's performances are always incredible. I think he already has an Oscar though. Another win for him is no problem with me.

    @thedude-abides Drive is considered a cult film. Those always get subbed by the Academy. At least it got a nom. And the Blu-ray comes out next week. Look forward to that.

    @2movieguys a VERY underrated actor who really deserves this nom.

    3 years agoby @m2Flag

  32. thedude-abides

    Well, I've been perhaps the biggest proponent of Drive on this site. It's easily the best movie I've seen all year. Having said that, I'm not surprised by its absence from the list one bit. As stupid as it might sound, it's not the Academy's type of movie.

    I'll say this.... if Billy Crystal wasn't hosting this year, I would not be watching the Oscars. And even still, I may consider skipping it and just seeing who the winners are the next day.

    Though chatting with all you bums on the instant chat during it is kinda fun.

    Not saying The Descendants was bad I'm just saying The Artist to me is Best Picture.

    3 years agoby @m2Flag

  39. m2

    Out of all the Best Picture nom's I think Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is the one who least deserves it (again in my opinion) and I agree with all of you that Drive should have been there. Really hoping The Descendants don't win it.

  40. slysnide

    Artist & Streep for film & acting. I'm not sure on most of the others. It'd be nice to see JW win again as I can't recall ever seeing him win one in my lifetime, or at least my lifetime of watching the oscars.

    @m2 I don't think Davis has any chance, personally. Williams performance has been raved. Volia Davis, while good, doesn't really deserve the win.

  45. Corey W.

    @SpaceCowboy I would like to Mara win just because it gives DT an Oscar-win on its back, BUT Michelle Williams REALLY deserves that Oscar. I wouldn't be surprised if Streep wins it though. She doesn't deserve though. Iron Lady wasn't even that great of a film. Her performance overall? Solid, but she doesn't deserve that win.

    3 years agoby @coreyFlag

    @corey I think Williams comes 3rd place in winning the Oscar. Streep and Davis have a better chance (in my opinion).

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx This feels like a very typical nomination list. The Clooney's, Allen's, and films that have come out only in the last couple months designed as Oscar bait. Meh. It deserves a thumbs down.

    @corey MWWM = My Week with Marilyn. And I was referring to your comment about Best Actress. Michelle took the Globe, but I would like to see Rooney win the Oscar.
