Here Are The Oscar Nominees! Guess Who Got Snubbed?


A nice bunch of people and product were accorded nominations.

Snubbed: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tilda Swinton, Albert Brooks, Shailene Woodley, and The Adventures of Tintin (for Best Animated; the Academy doesn’t care for stop-motion).

But sneaking in there for Best Picture and Best Director was The Tree of Life, which is a lovely surprise and a vote for quality.

That gives Brad Pitt two Best Picture nominees!

My predictions yesterday were OK, but I actually left a comment saying I felt that Bichir and Oldman were going to take the slots I gave to DiCaprio and Fassbender, and that Rooney Mara would get the Tilda Swinton spot.

I should have listened to my gut!

But wait a minute!

Are there really only two Best Song nominees?

Get rid of the freakin’ category!

And is Bridesmaids really pitted against the Iranian film A Separation for Original Screenplay?

This should be interesting.
