    Best film oscar should obviously go to Fast Five.

    I don't see J Edgar getting the nod. Had a lot of buzz before it was released, but ended up getting mostly mixed reviews. Plus it didn't do @#%^ at the box office. Leonardo will get a nod though.

    It's be fairly straight forward I believe, THE ARTIST, Descendants, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, and who knows what else. THE ARTIST will probably win. It's got the rave reveiws, and it's a silent picture. The academy won't resist having a silent film take home best picture. They'll want to be part of history, and so they'll pic the most obvious choice.

    I'm usually far behind on Oscar movies. This year might be the worst of all. I will see Hugo this week now that I'm off work.

    I so can't figure out what will be nominated this year.

    And after last year, I've got zero stock in the Academy Awards. I watched nearly everything, and so many categories involved movies winning that by no means deserved to win.

    I keep hearing nothing but amazing reviews about War Horse.

    I'm going to guess there will be nods for J. Edgar and The Iron Lady.

    I can guess what happens in War Horse: the horse dies.

    War Horse looks like complete sentimental drivel more suitable for television. If it gets nominated for anything, I'll be pissed off.



    Los Angeles Lakers: Drama, guaranteed.

    maybe you should at least watch the movie first if you plan on getting so upset about it. 'sides, emotional drivel wins lots o' oscars.

    I think it was nominated for a Golden Globe. I also think it's probably not difficult to piss you off in general.

    When I first saw an ad for it, I honestly thought it was for some sort of parody/comedy. :p

    Honestly, if what I said about the film is true (not familiar with the book), and the fact that it's Spielberg, it probably is "emotional drivel." :p



    And I'll sob throughout.

    Another year I've seen none of those nominated. None of them even interested me, again.

    i also haven't seen a single one of the best picture noms. i'm kind of interested in most of them though. i'll try to watch them all before the oscars.

    also, i know it's only sound and effects categories but i find it kind of dismaying that 'transformers: dark of the moon' was nominated for three oscars.

    Sorry that Andy Serkis, Albert Brooks, Tintin, and Drive got snubbed

    No Tintin nomination for Best Animated?

    [image=http://i395.photobucket.com/albums/pp39/darthramza/HA_HA_HA_OH_WOW.jpg]

    I suppose I'd like to thank the Academy for reminding me why I should never take them too seriously.

    I hope everyone's excited for an undeserved win by ultimate safe pick The Artist.
