  1. bob says

    I think another snub is Danny Boyle for director. As much as I love James Franco, that movie would have been a huge yawner in any other director’s hands. I also find it interesting that Inception is nominated for best film and yet there are no nods for direction or any of the acting. It is seemingly based on its visual effects, sound, story and editing which makes sense. But it goes to show you that according to the Oscars, if the story is good and you have great tricks, you can cast anybody.

  2. MichaelJ says

    I wouldn’t regard the Academy overlooking The Town as a snub. All of the ten films they did nominate for Best Picture are far superior including, yes, really, the thoroughly delightful Toy Story 3. Ditto for those who got nominated instead of Mila Kunis, especially the fierce performance of Jackie Weaver in Animal Kingdom, playing the mother from hell of a crime family. Her character could eat Melissa Leo’s character in The Fighter for lunch.

  3. says

    The one thing wrong with these nominations: No Tilda Swinton and her great film I Am Love. One of the best performances I’ve ever seen and one gorgeous film. I know it’s Portman’s to lose this year and she was fine in Black Swan, but Swinton gave a tour de force performance.

  4. Matt26 says

    No big suprises, I’d like to see Colin Firth or James Franco getting the award. Others, well let the show have at least some suprises.
    Oh, and of course we’ll see James F all night long (here in Europe). All the best to him.

  5. Dback says

    Life isn’t fair, and neither–especially–are the Oscars, ESPECIALLY with regards to Best Picture. Never forget that. (Those of us who went into shock in February 2006 certainly can’t.)

  6. Phil says

    What about Hailee Steinfeld from True Grit? I know she’s young, and this was her first big role, but I thought it was an absolutely phenomenal performance

  7. AdamA says

    Same thing happened last year with UP, Adam–and with the ten nominee format, expect Pixar to have a nearly annual appearance in the Best Picture category.

    No big surprises here, except Nolan’s exclusion for directing Inception, which is not even that big a surprise.

    The disappointments:
    – No Gosling in Best Actor for Blue Valentine
    – Neither Black Swan woman gets into the Supporting Actress category (I love the Weaver nomination though)
    – Hereafter’s fricking tidal wave got it a nomination for effects
    – I would list Swinton here, but I never thought she had a shot, so I’m not “disappointed.” With this and last year’s Julia, though, she’s building up quite a resume of snubbed performances.

    The joys:
    – I Am Love in the costume category
    – Michelle Williams in Best Actress
    – Javier Bardem in Best Actor
    – Hailee Steinfeld has a legit shot at the first kiddy win since Anna Pacquin, and she’d be their most deserving kid winner ever it if she gets it

  8. cupcakes says

    The Kids Are Alright was a dumb movie, stupid premise, dyke discovers she likes cock, what originality! Benning was at least amusing in the dinner scene when she goes off on that couple but that was about it.

    No, King’s Speech and Social Contract are superior in every way and far more interesting.

    Why is the current gay cinema so horrible? Fran Lebowitz must be right when she says Aids wiped out all the talent.

    But I suppose Hollywood will continue to pump out this kind of gay crap when its fashionable for au courant actors to play gay characters.

    TransAmerica and of the course the immortal Brokeback are in a class by themselves. First class American cinema on gay themes can be done and hopefully will done again.

  9. Dawson says

    Please tell me how you can take the best actress category serious when Kim Hye Ja from the Korean film ‘Mother’ wasn’t nominated? The Los Angeles Film Critic’s voted her the best actress so I was hoping she would get nominated.

    Any film buff who loves great acting needs to see this movie. Please after seeing it tell me if Kim Hye Ja wasn’t robbed. And for Weon Bin in the same movie to be overlooked is just a shame.

    I thought the tide had changed with foreign actors and actress getting nominated. Excluding the English it was nice to see Javier Bardem but to ignor Kim Hye Ja makes no sense.

    Film buffs, please see this movie for the acting alone and let me know if you think Kim Hye Ja was robbed.

  10. Toto says

    Really glad to see Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for Winter’s Bone. I’m betting that Portman will get it but I’m ok with that.

  11. says

    I’ve seen them all but 127 Hours and Winter’s Bone and don’t believe most I’ve seen rating a nomination. The King’s Speech should take the night. Both Colin Firth and especially Helen Bonham Carter deserve the nod. Carter was superb. I thought Black Swan was a yawner along with True Grit, Inception (which you couldn’t follow), The Fighter (just another poor fight film), The Social Network was a complete joke, Toy Story was okay but certainly nothing to write home about. The Kids… should have had two lesbian actresses instead of Moore and Benning – then it would have been a really good film.

    They sure passed up a lot of other great films and actors but then, the Academy has never been the brightest bulb in Hollywood.

  12. Gregoire says

    “I thought Black Swan was a yawner along with True Grit, Inception (which you couldn’t follow), The Fighter (just another poor fight film), The Social Network was a complete joke, Toy Story was okay but certainly nothing to write home about.”

    That is literally the silliest sentence on the Internete. You can just HEAR the pooh-poohing.

  13. Hank says

    I agree with the person above who said the actress in “Mother” was overlooked. She was incredible, unfortunately it was a “small” foreign-language film that very few people saw. But it was a great film and she was great in it!

  14. says

    I don’t know why all the praise and glory is going to Anette Betting for The Kids are Alright — don’t get me wrong, she was great, but Julianne Moore was every bit as good in that film, IMO. I just watched it for the first time over the weekend — I don’t think Moore had the ‘easier’ role at all. They were both pretty tough.

    All in all, though, it was definitely one of the best movies of the year.

    I’m a little upset that The Town was snubbed, too. I honestly think that’s one of the best 3-4 movies of the entire year, and could have been my personal favorite. Yeah, it was more of a thriller than artsy drama, but the movie was just about perfect in every way, and harkened back to the days when Hollywood studios built their action-packed thrillers around mounting tension and the use of key use (but not over use) of effects for the films — not special effects, but real effects.

    Hopefully, the movie did well enough that it spurs on more like it, though. I’m enjoying being able to watch movies like Taken, The Town and Unstoppable again — just good, high-quality movies that don’t use special effects. I’m sick of ridiculous special effects for scenes that go between silly to horrifically unrealistic.

    My pick for Best Picture of the remaining films has to be The Social Network. The King’s Speech was great — and Colin Firth should win — but it really doesn’t stack up to The Social Network as a full package film. It’s a lot more derivative than The Social Network, for starters.

  15. JP says

    Lay off Toy Story 3 those of you questioning it. It was a film written for family audiences that dealt with loss, grief and the very human ability to reinvent oneself even when it seems like the most difficult option. It was a total tour de force.

    Pixar’s last 3 movies have been so emotionally dense they deserve to win some kind of award for consistency.

  16. jaragon says

    It’s not fair to nominate “ToyStory 3″ in two categories. (and actually “How To Tame A Dragon” is a better animated film)

  17. antisaint says

    I’ve got some catching up to do, but I’m just glad to see nobody shedding a tear about the Mila Kunis ‘snub’ – I thought she did ok but I also thought she should’ve considered herself lucky to get a Golden Globe nomination for that.

  18. sal says

    randy newman nominated omg this oscar sounds different!!!omg i’m so excited…to see paint dry
