    sarah Says:

    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..

    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.

    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 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..

    @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.

    No Marion Cotillard? what a pice of shi-t!
    Jessica Chastain’s desperate Oscar campaign posing for paparazzis everyday is working very well!
    Go Emmanuelle Riva! you really deserve it and didn’t make an opportunist government/CIA propaganda like Jessica, not to mention her photo op everyday.

    quote: “so there is no glamour at the oscar this year, it will be so booring (sic) and out of touch”

    That is such a huge insult to the many beautiful and glamorous women in the biz, and a slap in the face to all the stylists and designers, shoemakers, jewellers etc who contribute to create much glamour on the night. There are not just 2 glamorous women in the film industry.

    This list looks boring. Anne hatheway will get it for her non-stop campaigning. She is so desperate for an oscar and. Abouslulty pathetic. Whatever happened to just acting for teh sake of acting? She is a good actress which is such a shame she is doing non-stop promotion. Its annoying and makes me wanna root for the others in her category .

    Joaquin Phoenix!!!!!!!! I am so happy about this, made my day!!!!
    I am disappointed though that Kathryn Bigelow isn’t nominated for Zero Dark Thirty. I want Jessica Chastain to win for best actress (fingers crossed). And please, please, please for Phillip Setmour Hoffman to win for best supporting actor. He’s such an excellent actor and deserves the recognition.

    so happy for Sally. she is terrific and underrated. everyone always talks about Meryl as one of the greatest. sally is just as good (if not more captivating imo) I can get into any of her roles. she pours her heart and soul into them.

    will be happy as long as jennifer lawrence does not win best actress and before anyone starts speculating its not cos i don’t like her its just that the other nominees in the category deserve it more. hope naomi watts wins as her performance in the impossible is amazing

  72. 72
    TheTruthIs Says:

    I’m convinced Leo won’t get married until the Academy gives him at least on of all the Oscars he deserves!

    Just give him the award so we can see him moving on to work hard on his personal life :)

  73. 73
    toni Says:

    Besides how I feel about him putting an act on as a family man for an Oscar, Ben Affleck was robbed of Best Director nom.
    Also Leo stays getting snubbed to no end. I wonder what will he have to do to get one or I wonder does he really care that much about an Oscar.

    Daniel Day-Lewis is a lock to me for Best Actor.
    I’m happy for Q. Wallis for being nominated and being the youngest ever(I don’t know if she will win).

  74. 74
    Sylvie Says:

    Ben Affleck and Marion Cotillard deserve a nomination for best director and best actress. WTF ?!!!!!!
    I really hope Argo will win best picture.

  75. 75
    Jesskyah Says:

    So glad Quvenzhane got nominated and broke Keisha “I got pregnant at 17 and became an alcoholic” Castle Hughe’s record as I thought that performance for Whale Rider was sooo overrated and if anyone had to be a record holder for youngest ever lead actress… THAT should not have been it.

    This other girl however carried her movie so much better and so glad the record was broken. Was a little scared cause she got snubbed by other award groups.

  76. 76
    Cate Says:

    Pretty impressed by the Oscars this year. I don’t agree with every single nomination ans snubbut they’ve made quite a few surprising and deserved choices. Also a huge congratulations to Quvenzhané Wallis for her record-breaking nomination :)

  77. 77
    Erm Says:

    @Jesskyah: I think its ridiculous to nominate this 8 year od girl for Best Actress. Okay she was good but she was not great. Keisha Castle Hughes was fantastic in Whale Rider.
    How can you be certain she has a good head? What if she ends up washed up? Or getting pregnat like Keisha Castle Hughees?
    There was been other better child actor peformences then her and they got nothing. Elijah Wood in The War, Natalie Portman in The Professional, etc. Sorry but this little girl doens’t even come close to them. Macaulay Culkin was a good child actor but its a shame he turned to durgs and has issues.
    Rachel Weiz was amazing in Depp Blue Sea, Marion was brilliant in Rust and Bones. They are far more deserving for the nomintion then this 8 year old child.

    Leonardo De Caprio should have been nominated he deserves an Oscar for his performance in Django – If you guys like big booty girls check out Doyouvideos

    SNUBS: Ben Affleck and Bigelow for Best Director, Hawkes, Dicaprio,and Marion for acting nominations, Looper and Perks to being a Wallflower for Best Original Screenplay, Skyfall for Best Picture, The Dark Knight Rises for the technical awards.

  85. 85
    Anne Says:

    No Nicole Kidman in the supporting female category…disappointing! Now, Amy Adams has more Oscar nominations than her. If winning or getting nominated in the Oscars is a measurement of how good an actor is then does this mean that Amy Adams is a better actor than Nicole??? Well, I guess this just goes to show that the Oscars has no credibility anymore.
