    The Blind Side being nominated beside the likes of Inglourious Basterds and The Hurt Locker is insulting. The Blind Side is not remotely in the same league as those films and shouldn’t be mentioned in the same breath together. Just because it made a lot of money does not make it Oscar worthy.

  • Christoph go for it

    Yeah, I so hope he’ll get the Oscar!

  • cvb

    Who cares

  • mhmm

    @Imma be.: i totally agree.

  • Caught

    transformers should have gotten a visual effects nod

  • Kat

    I have nothing against George Clooney, i am sure he is a good-hearted man but why is he always nominated for a Best Actor when he is just playing himself in all his movies. I can’t recall a movie where he disappeared into the character. I mean, when I saw Brad Pitt in Fight Club, I would remember him as Tyler Durden or Aldo Raine in IB or Phillip Hoffman Seymour, he was Capote. These are actors. They can make you believe on the characters they are portraying. They become that character.

  • i like the blind side :D

    @Imma be.:
    um…i’m sorry. but the blind side is good. it’s touching and meaningful. It has everything a good movie should have. :)
    personally, i like it very much. watched the trailer and love it already

  • ummahyk

    May C.Waltz get the Oscar:| he was amazing..made me belive he really was col.Hans Landa:|

  • So Judgemental

    Kudos Carey Mulligan!

  • Cassidy

    Hmm…I think Marion Cotillard’s role in Nine was deeper than Penelope’s. Not saying she should win, just that she should have gotten the nod.

  • mhmm

    @i like the blind side :D: you haven’t even seen it??

  • Anderson

    Completely agree w/ tha comment above about how Clooney keeps getting undeserved nominations.

    Happy for A Serious Man being nominated for best picture.

  • delaney

    I’m really disappointed Marion Cotillard didn’t get a nomination for Nine. I love Penelope Cruz, and I love Sandra Bullock but neither one of them deserve a Oscar nomination this year. Neither did the two chicks from Up In the Air. I wish District 9 would get more attention. It was really good and that guy who was in it deserved an Oscar nomination.

  • Ben

    “Just because it made a lot of money does not make it Oscar worthy.”
    The same is true for Avatar.

  • jane

    I loved District 9 too. Avatar is amazing in many ways but I felt District 9 conveyed a more relevant message, relevant to our problems on earth.

  • Ashley

    The Hurt Locker ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    And The Blind Side is a piece of s***.

  • w3ad

    If Christphe Walz doesn’t win, I will lose my trust in the Oscars.


    We all know that Jeff Bridges , Monique, Sandra Bullock are front runners to win the award…So don’t even try ..And we do know that
    Matt Damon won’t win the German from Glorious is going to win
    We all know the winners already …That is why Brad Pitt is not
    showing up.. and if George was smart he would not either…
    NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY…We don’t need big stars there either
    like Will Smith or Tom Cruise or any 20 million dollar actors.. Any
    more.. Just low class actors…Gab from Precious should win than
    she can say the same thing that Halle said I won the first time making
    a movie and a black woman wins.

  • EAC

    Avatar deserves every award it is nominated for.
    Amazing film.

  • yo sista

    I hope Sandra wins and that’s all i HATE that boring-azz show YAWN!!!!!

  • cattie

    @Caught: go die

  • Babel

    Avatar really should NOT be on that list. Having great special effects doesn’t change the fact that the story is simplistic and tired.

  • Babel

    Will Anna Kendrick no longer star in Twilight now that she’s a serious actress?

  • Madeline

    the blind side is amazing!
    great story and very inspirational!
    i hope it wins!

    And Sandra will definitely win for her role in it! A-FRICKING-MAZING!

  • susi

    never found sandra bullock believable as an actress – she is cute – but that’s about it

  • istar

    congrats to all these nominees!
    im ecstatic for anna kendrick! xD

  • Deedz

    @cattie: LOL. Couldn’t have said it better.

  • s

    I’m hoping Jeremy Renner wins the Oscar for the Best Lead Actor. I saw all the movies in that category, and he proved to be the lead. He did great. Even when he wasn’t talking he was acting. And I agree with those that have mentioned Goerge Clooney’s acting, I don’t know when this began but when he is in a movie I always see George Clooney NOT the character. I understand he is well liked in this industry but that should NEVER be a basis for why someone should be nominated in EVERY role they play. My opinion…

  • cf

    No nominations for Bright Star or (500) Days of Summer? booo!

  • Pradeep

    I think The Hangover entertained us all the most last year. Isn’t there any OSCAR for the laughing riot?


    Sag Card.. Where is everyone else who have done movies for 10 years… Charlize Theron.. Will Smith… Halle Berry …. Brad Pitt Penelope is good but Kate Hudson stole the show… What ever happened to the glamour of seeing the real stars and not the INDIE ACTORS…
    No wonder Brad Pitt is not coming to this event ….

  • Marianne

    I can’t believe The Blind Side got a nomination for Best Pic or Avatar for that matter.

    I’m happy for Maggie Gyllenhaal and that Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince gets a cinematography nod. And I’m rooting for either The Young Victoria or The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus to get the Costume Design award.

  • Ryan

    What is the deal with nominating ten films for Best Movie for an Academy Award? They needed to add those extra five like I am going to the moon. Read my predictions on what will win and what is sh*t at Huffington Post approved blog, IMeanWhat?!? at

  • Marianne

    Oh I forgot to mention how they snubbed 500 Days of Summer. Deserves a Best Original Screenplay nod….but the Academy apparently can’t see that.

  • LolaSvelt

    Worst nominees:
    The Blind Side
    Penelope Cruz (I do love her, but there were better performances)
    Meryl Streep

    Inglourious, Carey Mulligan, Gabourey Sidibe, In the Loop, The White Ribbon, Woody!

    Worst snubs:
    Christian McKay and Anthony Mackie over Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Marion Cotillard, Melanie Laurent, Diane Kruger or Samantha Morton over Cruz, Abbie Cornish over Sandra Bullock…the list goes on.

    Nice surprises:
    Maggie Gyllenhaal

  • LolaSvelt

    @INDIES TAKE OVER OSCARS..: God, you’re an idiot.

  • Ponyo should have been nominated for animated film =[

  • Loubi

    Why penelopé is nominated ?
    She doesn’t deserve to win , she plays a whore , anyone can do it ! Ask Scarjo !
    Why gabourney sidibe ?
    Why kristine hendrix ?
    Why sandra bullock ?

    Is there no more talented actress in hollywood ?

    Go Meryl streep ! I’m so disappointed Marion didn’t get a nomination , she is one of the most talented actress I’ve ever seen !

  • to 18

    Christoph isn’t German.

  • lucas

    @Babel: well the answer to that it depends. As I recall from the books, her character went a tad beeyotch and was no longer friends with Bella so she could be written out of the third movie (never read that book). So they might not need Anna. but if this is not the case and Anna has a contract to do the movie, then yes she will do it. because as a serious actress and an adult, she’s likely well aware of the need to follow through on contracts. Let’s not forget the negative press that came up for Rachel when she didn’t follow form and her contract and obligated herself to a conflicting project and had to be cut from the third movie because she didn’t want to pull out of said project. Anna doesn’t seem like the type to watch all that and pull the same game.

  • Anna

    I saw “Up In The Air” but none of the performances were Oscar worthy, especially Anna Kendrick. She was nice but not Oscar worthy. Same goes for Vera and George. Only the Screenplay nomination is wel chosen.

  • Gia

    I’m a little surprised not see nominations for Nine in best Sound and Video mixing/editing, make-up and Best Pitcure. I’m more surprised that Marion didn’t get a nomination for Best Actress. I felt her role and performance was just as good as Penelopes. Glad to see Take It All got a nomination but what about Cenima Italiano. Considering it was nominated for A Golden Globe and Take it All wasnt I would have thought it would be in the running. And I don’t think it’s fair that Up is nominated in both animated and Best Pitcure categories. I don’t think An Education deserved a nomination either.

  • lucas

    something folks need to keep in mind is that the Academy doesn’t pick from every movie made in the year and every person in them. they have particular rules and vote on those films that apply for a nomination and fit those rules.
    think of it like picking a new President. We don’t vote from every male, naturally born citizen of the US, 35 and up (or whatever the exact rules are). We pick from basically a handful of folks that ask for the job. It comes down to perhaps a total of 50 folks out of thousands that are paired down to maybe 6 in the end.

  • Gia

    And Diane Kruger deserved a nomination worlds more than the both of those Up in The Air ladies. But I’m glad to see Lee Daniels and Quentin got nods. Hope one of them wins, but I know James Cameron will win for the Box Office scores.

  • so disrespectful

    Rachel from Friends did not get a nomination for best performance by a over 40 sitcom actress pretending to be a movie star. Leatherface will not be invited to the Oscars this year. Because without Brad and Angelina know one is interested in her.

  • Gia

    And what the hell? I just noticed Julian Moore didn’t get a nomination for A Single Man.

  • Diva

    I totally agree with you #6 (Kat)

  • xyz

    Kat @ 02/02/2010 @ 9:56 am

    I think you mean Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and yes he was terrific as Capote.

  • Jeanie

    Anne Hathaway is one ugly woman, inside and out.

  • ness

    El Secreto de Sus Ojos is nominated, WOOHOOOOOOOO! go, Argentina!
