I've only seen THE HELP from those, but that looks like too many movies. EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE was a surprise. I say strike that one the list, and maybe another one - MONEYBALL? - and you'd have a more interesting race. And from the sound of it, Replace another still with TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPION

http://www.oscars.org/awards/academyawards/84/nominees.html?_r=true

Here is the full list.


I've only seen THE TREE OF LIFE and it's great to see it being nominated but I'm not really surprised since the Academy love Malick. I hope he turns up.

Good to see Gary Oldman getting some recognition and TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY should have been nominated for Best Picture to make it 10 BP nominees. I'm sure it's better than most of them anyway.

I thought THE READER was completely mediocre but Stephen Daldry must have friends in the Academy for nominating every film he has made.

DRIVE only gets best sound editing after all the hype.

I think having 10 nominees in the Best Picture category simply waters down the value of having been nominated in the first place.

Too many foreigners listed in these nominations, which is why I suspect these Oscars ratings are going to be down yet again.

It's good to see child molester Woody Allen getting some recognition again from the Academy. He should be awarded the coveted Roman Polanski Lifetime Achievement Award at some point.

Looking ahead to 2013, I predict the following nominations::

Best Picture
Skyfall

Best Director
Sam Mendes

Best Original Song
"Skyfall" by MUSE

Best Original Screenplay:
Skyfall by Robert Purvis and Robert Wade

I also predict that, on her way to the podium to accept the Oscar for Best PIcture, Babs will elbow step-brother Michael out of the frame so he can't be seen on screen, and she'll forget to thank her father, Albert Cubby Broccoli, for making the series so great before she shat all over it.

MONEYBALL and MIDNIGHT IN PARIS don't belong on the list. Haven't seen EXTREMELY LOUD, but it looks like exploiting 9/11 will get you pretty far in Hollywood. I can imagine it's a fucking godawful picture with an annoying child actor.

Notable exclusions for Best Picture: DRIVE, TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY, DRAGON TATTOO

I have a feeling the Woody Allen was given a nomination because he's old and we won't be seeing too many more films from him soon. Fair enough. Same goes for Von Sydow.

I'd like to see Alberto Iglesias win best score, because he's an outstanding composer. If not him, then John Williams for WAR HORSE. The other scores aren't worth a damn--especially THE ARTIST (and I imagine it'll win).

And I hope Rooney Mara wins best actress. She was awesome in DRAGON TATTOO.

Melissa McCarthy? laugh For what was pretty much an extended SNL gag? laugh

If Streep wins for Iron Lady I will throw something. Am I the only person on the planet who thinks she's totally hammy when she does the dress-up act?

Glenn Close might get Lead Actress as a Long Service Award. I haven't seen Albert Nobbs, but with the state of her face recently I doubt she was doing much acting in it.

MONEYBALL
Haha, that's such a terrible title. You can't tell that it's about baseball just by reading the title. Fake word doesn't even sound like "baseball."

I look forward to the sequels (about basketball, football and volleyball, respectively):

MONEYBALL 2
MONEYBALL 3
MONEYBALL: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS

Agreed (looking back, it's ridiculous that STAR TREK was nominated for Best Picture a couple of years ago). Although, oddly, there are only nine this year.

I will say this: I was kind of surprised to see that SHAME got nothing. For all the talk by Follywood of rewarding risky, daring, innovative performances and films, Whorrywood sure managed to try and take the safe route with these selections.

Interesting note from THE LA Times :In the actor category, it seems taking it all off gets you nowhere, whereas saying nothing at all makes you a shoo-in. Michael Fassbender was ignored by the academy for his role as a sex addict in Steve McQueen's "Shame," a performance many thought was a lock in the best actor category. Meanwhile, Demian Bichir was nominated for his role as an undocumented gardener living in Los Angeles in the little-seen Chris Weitz-directed drama "A Better Life," and both Jean Dujardin (best actor, "The Artist") and Max von Sydow (best supporting actor, "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close") were nominated for roles where few, if any, words are spoken.

In other words, Demian Bichir was nominated for playing an illegal alien, not an "undocumented worker". That's like me stealing money from someone's wallet and referring to myself as an "undocumented treasury agent" ;)

Didn't Judi Dench win an Oscar for Shakespeare In Love, a film she was barely in for 10 minutes? Admittedly I think that's all I've seen of that film.

Can I say Fumducks then?

Those Academy members are a bunch of Fumducks!!

I still don't understand why there are 10 Best Picture nominations now!!

So why not 10 for each of the other categories too?

I'm hoping The Tree Of Life wins some awards, and even though I haven't seen The Artist (yet!), I hope that wins too, if only just to inspire other film makers to be different than the norm.

Words aren't everything. In fact in a lot of films today, there are too many of them.

Where's Tintin? Did it not qualify as an animated film?
And WTF on Fassbender's snub?
In any case, these look like the most predictable Oscars in years: The Artist, Scorsese, Clooney, Streep, Plummer.

In a perfect world, MYSTERIES OF LISBON and Raul Ruiz received nominations. But it ain't a perfect world.

Anyway, a fairly predictable set of nominees.
