    I really liked Toy Story 3. I kind of hope it wins, but it's a long shot.
    I really liked How to Train Your Dragon as well. So maybe it will win animated feature while TS3 wins Best Picture.

    Hallie Steinfeld should have been nominated for Best Actress.

    I wonder if Jeff Bridges will get back to back wins?

    I haven't seen "Social Network" yet. That is going to change very soon, but my Mom liked it, and that usually tells me its hoaky. Now, I have seen "The Fighter" "True Grit" and "The Black Swan" and I thought "The Black Swan" was AMAZING! It was so good, and one of the best films I have ever seen (not the best, but easily in my top 10) !!

    Nolan got shafted. C'mon, they gave give a nomination to Aronofsky for Black Swan and nothing for Nolan???? Natalie Portman carried that movie, if she wasn't in it, it wouldn't be that great (even though I still didn't think it was THAT great movie wise).

    If they can disqualify a bunch of composers due to original music constraints or listing too many contributing composers how in the hell can they let a movie be nominated for two "Best" categories? That's bull****. Let TS3 win for best animated film because it pretty much is the best out of the 3. Why bother putting an animated film up against all those dramas?

    What is the point of having 5 bajillion movies nominated for best picture? I thought it was to get more viewers to watch. But what's the point when they keep on nominating indie/arthouse movies that a lot of the general population hasn't seen? I've only seen 3 of the 10 on that list. If they want more people to pay attention the might as well make more sub categories and separate the movies by genres. Can I stress again that it's ridiculous that TS3 is even nominated for best picture?

    The Academy is going to spite me and give best score to Desplat. Or A.R. Rahman, who, I don't really have anything against, but I don't think he should have one best score for Slumdog that one year.

    **** I hate the Academy Awards.

    Agreed. See Winter's Bone, it's the 'little engine that could' that won't, sadly, win a damned thing.

    The King's Speech was an outstanding movie, but no way in hell did Bonham Carter deserve to be recognized for that role. She was fine enough, but the character was so thin and one note that it's hard to find anything remarkable about it.

    10 Best Picture nominees is still too many. By the time it was announced last year, I completely forgot more than half of the films that were nominated. Tom Hanks was probably relieved that he didn't have to list all 10.

    Eff the Academy Awards! it's the same bull every year.
    and I haven't watched most of these movies anyway, so I could careless and hope my favorite actors and actresses win.

    i'm so stoked on trent reznor being nominated for an oscar.

    as for the movie stuff, i don't really think there were any surprises in the nomination for the major categories. and i just saw the king's speech and completely loved it. but i'm rooting for toy story 3 to take best picture (although it'll never happen).
