Don't Tase Me Bro
Nic Cage for BAD LIEUTENANT. (And his role as Big Daddy in KICK-ASS shouldn't hurt his chances either; a nomination for BL would be a 'thank you' for both films in my book).It just won't be right to overlook him in BL (even if the article has). Any takers?

The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans came out last year. But I'll agree that Cage should have gotten an Oscar nomination.

Yes, but THE HURT LOCKER was released in 2008...and won its Oscar in 2010, so, I say it's fair game.

The Oscars are based on USA release dates. The Hurt Locker was released in the USA on June 26, 2009 and Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans was released on November 20, 2009. The 2008 date for The Hurt Locker that you're referring to is the premiere at the Venice International Film Festival. That doesn't count.

I did not know that Greg; thanks for clearing that up!

I'm looking forward to seeing how Jesse Eisenberg does this year. Hopefully he'll be good enough to slide in on the nominations. I agree with the article that DiCaprio was better in Shutter Island. I'll be pretty surprised if he gets nominated for Inception.

I don't think DiCaprio is going to get a nomination for Inception. Hope he does, but don't think he will.Surprised James Franco is not being thrown around for 127 Hours.

If Tilda Swinton can get the Oscar for Michael Clayton, then DiCaprio should surely be nominated for Inception, let alone Shutter Island.Who knows anyways, most Oscar wins tend to be incomprehensible and due to hollywood political correctness and/ or politics

There is no way Leo is ever getting nominated for either of those films.

I know, nothing more than wishful thinking. Leo getting a nom is definitely unlikely but I can dream, cant I ?

If those 5 are the actual nominees (HUGE if since I still believe Inception's going to get the shaft), Duval would win in a cakewalk.

whether or not Leo gets nominated for Inception is not a big deal. either way, the academy is going to stick it to Nolan. it's their tradition dating back to Memento.
