So The Hobbit is not even nominated for Best Picture? Surprising?

You should check it out.

Very independent local production about squatters in the Mississippi Delta during a big hurricane.

Fantasy film through a young girl's perspective, but very gritty.

Excellent movie and I'm thrilled it's getting such recognition.

Great for independent Louisiana filmmakers.

Absolute Bull shite that Tarantino and Dicaprio weren't nominated.

How the hell didn't the Hobbit get costume design? Thought only Les Mis would be able to compete with it.

I'm surprised Rise of the Guardians didn't get nominated for animated picture. I've only seen Pirates on the list and it was kind of dumb and not really anything spectacular.



I really liked Pirates and thought it was pretty funny. Hoping for a sequel.

A few surprises in there, but nothing shocking. I've actually only seen two of the Best Picture nominees (Beasts and Django), but I'm hoping to catch three more before the Awards (Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty, and Argo).

Sam Jackson as well. I'd say that was his best performance yet.

Disagree. Ben Affleck's directing snub for Argo is probably one of the biggest snubs in a very long time.

He and Spielberg were considered the frontrunners up until this morning.

The critics have had fun defecating all over this film, to where I never expected it.

Agreed. Ben Affleck can't catch a break from breaking his reputation as a shitty actor and someone who had little to nothing in writing Good Will Hunting, when he is currently proving himself as a fine filmmaker at this point.

Silver Linings Playbook seems pretty unimpressive to have so many nominations. I hate the oscars

Have you even seen it? It's a great movie. And I think it's between Silver Linings Playbook and Lincoln for Best Picture. Sure, Life of Pi got the second most nominations (11), but it isn't the kind of film that usually wins Best Picture. It's a technical triumph that will more than likely go the way Hugo went last year.

I really hope Lincoln doesn't get it. Maybe I was expecting an entirely different film, like the life of Abe Lincoln, but really the film should have been called the 13th Ammendment. Really like "The Life of Pi", and really want to see Silver Lining Playbook.
