    Here's the list if anyone hasn't seen it yet.

    Delighted they gave Quvenzhané Wallis a Best Actress nomination instead of replicating the True Grit fiasco.

    Leo snubbed, again

    For now, I'll assume it's because he didn't have enough screen time, even for supporting. Waltz is apparently practically the lead for a lot of it.

    Happy Django's up for best film though, but where's my Tarantino in best director

    I don't think Leo deserves a nomination for his role in Django. He wasn't that great.

    Hmm... Lincoln is such cynically Oscar-chasing material. Ticks all the boxes, release date, grand historical setting, big name actors, heavy moral theme. Yawn.

    No doubt it will clean up at the Oscars :rolleyes:
    You called it! Most nominations.

    This. I've seen the film as well, and Christoph Waltz is simply better. I even prefer Samuel L. Jackson's performance to Leo's.

    Well.. dam.. i really thought this was Dicaprios chance at an Oscar.
    He is still young, although I agree, he is one of the best actors out there who haven't won one yet.

    I'll hold off on criticizing those that've been snubbed till I've seen the likes of Django, Les Mis, Zero Dark Thirty and Lincoln. Surprised at the Haneke noms though.

    Saw The Impossible (and Gangster Squad) today. Naomi Watts was pretty good in the former but I doubt it's the performance of the year - probably deserves the nod though.

    I disagree, I thought Leo was fantastic in Django, better than Waltz , but each to their own. !

    Trivia: Did you know...

    That part where he gets blood all over his hands after slamming his hands on the table was actually a live accident on set but Leo didn't break character at all and just incorporated into his performance.

    Nothing like a nine year old being nominated for Best Actress to make you ponder your life's many failures...

    I saw Moon just now on TV. Sam Rockwell really is a great actor. And the film was good, no big special effects, just a good story imo, beautifully played.

    I am quite pissed of with the academy. Agro is simply the best thriller I have ever seen. It feels you with so much suspense that you're at the edge of your seat all throughout the movie. Even though it has been nominated for an Oscar, it's stupidly underrated. Ben Affleck WAS robbed of his Oscar nomination, it did a better job than Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings: Playbook and Denzel Washington in Flight.

    Out of those who were nominated, Daniel Day Lewis should win the Oscar, I did a mighty job in Lincoln.

    Has Leonardo DiCaprio done something to upset the academy? He work is constantly being overlooked.

    Had anyone seen "Beasts of the Southern Wild"?

    The Best Actor nominations are kind of meh. Most likely will go to Daniel Day Lewis, again.

    I think Jennifer Lawrence should get the Best Actress one. She has been in so many top movies in such a short period of time, and good performances in there (she was amazing in Winter's Bone). So even if she doesn't win tonight, she will at some stage in her career. Probably the biggest young actress out there atm. Already second nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role, and she's only 22. Would be second youngest to win.

    Quite interesting that they have Wallis, who would be the youngest ever to win it, as well as Riva, who would be the oldest!

    Lawrence was great in Winter's Bone, but was she as good in Silver Linings Playbook?

    Haven't seen the latter. It's about the competition though.
