    No Ben for Best Director! hehehe. Made my day,

    Wonder if he will stop his daily parade for the called paps?? Maybe he will realize the academy does not care if he suddenly is seen with his kids when he used to be so MIA!

  • It would be awesome if Jennifer Lawrence wins
    you dont often/ever see someone in movie franchise win one :D

  • phoebe

    no keira knightley nominations? :(

  • nina

    Where is Marion Cotillard?? WTF?? Huge snub…

  • lisa

    @lids it because that stupid movie zero dark thirty cancelled it out .Since it’s also about the CIA too.
    But he got 7 nomination which is achievement in itself.Congrats BEN ! :)

  • milli

    do the oscars even matter anymore??

  • K

    It’s like the same 5 or 6 movies…with everyone associated with it nominated for an Oscar in the lead, supporting, and best director roles. I don’t get it.

  • sarah

    WOW!! Affleck got snubbed.. He was supposed to be a stone cold lock for a nomination.. Vegas odds had him winning or coming in second to Ang lee.. He even did the whole ‘hang with his kids’ photo ops and showed up to all the events in the run up… Kind of feel bad for him because he deserved it actually.. He’s probably so confused right now.. Cold world..

  • lila

    woooooowww! silver linings playbook is great that’s so awesome for Jennifer lawrence! great job great job!

  • Bree

    It’s gonna be predictable :(
    The red carpet is likely to be boring too :( :(

  • bobbi

    Shame Affleck was overlooked for a best director nod. Argo was a really good movie.

  • sarah

    Tarantino got and Katherine Bigelow(Zero Dark thirty) got snubbed for best director too.. I’m ok with that..

  • WhatATool

    Pimpdaddy Ben Not Best Director!
    phony Anne H. and Naomi W are writing their acceptance speech

  • mz_linz

    Where the hell is Leo???!!!! Shame on you Academy shame on you…

  • damn

    this is such BS! The Impossible was the best movie of 2012!

  • Tom

    Shocked at Kathryn Bigelow snub. I always think it’s only a snub if you had a chance at winning and she definitely did. Otherwise pretty predictable nominations.

  • PharmAnimal89

    I want Quvenzhane or JLAW to win! Quvenzhane is the youngest lead actress EVER to get nominated!!

    AND where in the world is LEO?!!

  • anna

    LOL after all those photo ops Ben Affleck didn’t even get nominated! Guess the kids will never see him again now.

  • Melissa

    Nothing for Cloud Atlas…absolute bull

  • beastit

    Once there was a girl named Hushpuppy, and she lived in The Bathtub with her daddy, faced Aurochs head on. And now she’s nominated for an Oscar.

  • Athena

    The fact that Kerry Washington didn’t get nominated….

  • NE1

    Best Actress is kind of blah.. Liked that Bradley Cooper was nominated, and Helen Hunt is an interesting surprise. Leo shut out again.. Eh. I’ll be watching I suppose.

  • Marie

    It’s because The Academy is filled with old fogies.Mostly 80 and up and the only thing they can relate to is Lincoln .I’m glad most people on twitter agree with me Leo ,quentin and Ben were robbed!!!

  • willanka

    There are many WTF here! The biggest for me here is Marion Cotillard? Kathryn Bigelow? Ben Affleck?

  • damn

    Naomi Watts better fuqing win!

  • Marie

    It’s because The Academy is filled with old fogies.Mostly 80 and up and the only thing they can relate to is Lincoln .I’m glad most people on twitter agree with me Leo ,Quentin and Ben were robbed!!!

    Even Bradley copper said Ben was robbed .Epic loss Academy

  • lane

    @milli: no

  • http://firty yesgirl

    affleck gotta be pissed, hookers and booze tonight

  • trey


    Nobody watches these dumb shows anyway

  • ameroë

    yaaay for Quvenzhané Wallis!!

  • Meela

    These are the worst nominations. Where da fuq are Leo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard and Kathryn Bigelow?! I’m most pissed about Leo though. I thought Django Unchained wouldn’t even be nominated since it’s such a new release, but if Christoph Waltz is nominated then why the hell isn’t Leo?

    The Academy is on crack. I’m definitely not interested in the Oscars this year.

  • Frozoid

    @Lids: Made my day, too! He is a terrible actor.

    How come the thumbs up aren’t showing up here?

  • Linsay lohan

    @yesgirl should know because she’s one herself,LOL

  • Linsay lohan

    and also Frozoid AKA Casper Smart ;)

  • milena

    Mirror Mirror!!!! very happy for lily collins XD

  • Hahaha

    No Affleck !!! Lol. … Yay for Naomi and JLaw.

  • Julie

    Second nomination for Jennifer Lawrence and she’s only like.. 22? Well done Jennifer!

    Best Actress in a Leading Role

    Amy Adams (just give it to her already)

    Best Motion Picture
    Argo or Zero Dark Thirty

  • Gin

    @milena: LOL WAT?

  • sarah

    @Frozoid he’s really not a terrible actor and his career trajectory has been so bizarre and fascinating.. He blew up from ‘Good Will Hunting’ then he did Gigli and Daredevil and multiple other terrible movies bad Enough to end his career.. Then to go on to write and direct and sometimes star in movies like The town, Argo , and Gone Baby gone.. I mean that’s pretty crazy . He 100% deserved a nomination .. Ang lee deserves to win..

  • milena

    @Gin: you do not know who was the protagonist of mirror mirror?

  • http://dlooking rachel

    Nobody cares about affleck. lincoln is going to win it all

  • Ellen


  • Italy19

    @Bree: Thats what I was thinking. Predictable. Lincoln is going to win almost or every single nomination just like happened last year with the artist and then with the king speech. Nothing new, nothing surprising, nothing exciting.

  • Moh123

    No Nicole kidman or Marion cotilard, so there is no glamour at the oscar this year, it will be so booring and out of touch.

  • Bella

    Michael Haneke nominated in 5 categories!!! Wohooo! And A Royals Affair ! AND The Master. But Anderson got robbed!! And what about The Hobbit and Hitchcock????

  • Eduarda

    Where is Kathryn Bigelow??? WTF?

  • Bella

    AND Christoph Waltz :) Nice!

  • Henre

    Brradley Cooper nominated? really???? really???? I wonder how many diqs he had to service to get an Oscar nod.
