I agree on Javier Bardem in Skyfall. Almost felt like he acted kind of restrained in that.

Everyone keeps shitting on the master but they actually gave it the credit it deserves, I can live without him getting the directing nom but it still would of been nice

Django Unchained hasn't even been released yet, don't complain that he didn't get nominated because you haven't seen the fucking movie yet

All that fucking list lincoln, skyfall, the hobbit (which you haven't seen), and a bit of looper. That's 4 movies out of the hundreds of great ones that came out this year.

I don't know The Master had a pretty damn good script and also Django's script is gonna be pretty intense knowing tarantino

The only reason The King's Speech worked was because of the rich characters in David Seidler's screenplay and all the near perfect performances. Hooper's direction felt like something out of a made for HBO movie, like when he did the John Adams miniseries. I don't understand why he won over Fincher and Nolan either.

Thank you Gary! Hell, I would have given it to Ben Affleck for THE TOWN over Hooper. I prefer Tobe to Tom even.

A few months ago I watched the Gruesome Edition of TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2: I can definitely see why it's been experiencing a cult resurrection in recent years. Now I'd love to try their award-winning chili! ("The secret...is in the meat!")

I know! Moonrise looks like an old polaroid photo. It really matches the 60's era.

Not much love for The Hobbit, Django Unchained, or Beasts of the Southern Wild. Though, based on reviews for Peter Jackson's latest return to Middle-Earth, perhaps not surprising for Bilbo & Co.

I adored BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD; looks like Wallis (damn, she broke my heart) is going to get the lion's share of the honors, although Dwight Henry recently won an award. Dammit, it should be seen by more out there, a true original in every sense.

Man. There is going to be some competition this year! I am no expert, but I am guessing the obvious pics for best picture will be Argo, Lincoln, and Zero Dark Thirty. (Interesting time for Zero Dark Thirty and Argo to come out, don't you think?) I am sure I will only like Django Unchained in the worst case scenario and LOVE it in the best case scenario. Don't expect much love for Django from the Academy. Quentin makes bold, brutal films that aren't exactly Oscar friendly. But you never know. I was surprised (pleasantly) that No Country for Old Men recieved the Best Picture win in 2007 - a very violent and brutal film that wasn't historical at all.

Here's hoping this leads Bigelow and Boal to a second team win.

Too early to guess the winner but this list pretty sure capture what the academy is looking for.

Best supporting actress: Sally Field in Lincoln it would be atrocious to see anybody else winning that category. It is already a travesty she was nominated for supporting actress instead of best actress! Her performance in that movie was beyond moving and certainly timeless!

So you are saying the Academy is probably going to pull another Meryl Streep and give a third Oscar to Sally? Haven't seen the movie yet I admit, but Sally has already won Best Actress twice (1979's NORMA RAE and 1984's PLACES IN THE HEART)? I love Field, I'm just saying.

What about The Avengers for best score? That score was awesome part of the movie's strength is held in the music.
