    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.

    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.

    @dan1 The Descendants was great, but Clooney doesn't deserve a freakin' Oscar! Where the hell is Gosling on that list?!?!?!

    @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.

    @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.

    @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.

    I think this year was pretty weak for movies. Especially compared to the last two years with things like Inception, Kings Speech, and Avatar. Moneyball is the biggest evidence of that. Plus I never thought I would see the day where Jonah Hill got an Oscar nomination.

    @dan1 Probably the film's strongest scene. I stand by my opinion when I say that Warrior tackled more emotional level than The Fighter did. Both are excellent, but I loved everything about Warrior.

    I still can't believe that Best Supporting Actor favorite Albert Brooks ("Drive") got snubbed too!

    @dan1 -- I'm looking very forward to watching "Drive". Hopefully I get a chance to see it by the time it reaches Redbox. I was very, very close to giving this article a thumbs down, but I feel as though they did more good than harm when it came to the nominations.

    Sad that director Tate Taylor ("The Help") was left out of both the Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay race.

    @corey Drive is a cult film. How do those get Oscar notice? At least it got a nom.

    And what about Fassbender?! Oh my dear, I hate these nominations. As long as Michelle Williams wins I'll be satisfied.

    This was not a good year for Steven Spielberg - "War Horse" was nominated in the best picture category, but he was left off the best director list and his "The Adventures of Tintin" was not nominated for best animated film.

    Original Song? What a sh*t list.

    @SpaceCowboy Yep. 100 percent. Its going to be The Artist, no doubt. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, while it looks excellent, is more of an acting film. I would understand performance nominations, but a Best Picture nod? Everything about Dragon Tattoo was excellent.

    I loved Midnight in Paris, but Drive or Dragon Tattoo should claim that spot.

    Niels Arden Oplev, the director of the 2009 Swedish film (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) adaptation, has been quoted as saying, "Why would they remake something when they can just go see the original?

    @gallagher@corey Felt bad for his character when he was trying so hard to fly straight and Hardy brought him down to drinking again. Powerful scene.

    Congrats to: Arianne Phillips gets ''W.E.'' a much deserved Oscar nomination.....This is the second Oscar nomination for Arianne, who was previously nominated in the same category back in 2005 for her work on "Walk The Line".

    I'm very happy that Melissa McCarthy got a nod for Best Supporting Actress for "Bridesmaids"...didn't care for the film...I thought the film was poorly marketed and not that funny...somewhat boring.........the only thing that made "Bridesmaids" watchable was Melissa McCarthy as Megan!

    @2movieguys Its not a remake. Its the American adaptation. Dragon Tattoo was a book and when Sweeden made it into a film it was their adaptation of the book. When America made it into a film, it was out adaptation of the book. Fincher's Dragon Tattoo isn't a remake, its an adaptation.
