    Thoughts?

    Here are some of mine:

    -Christopher Nolan: Snubbed again
    -Hallie Steinfeld was not a supporting actress, but I guess they figure she doesn't have a chance to beat Natalie Portman
    -Sad that Japan's "Confessions" didn't make the Foreign Film list
    -Is there any way Toy Story 3 can not win Best Animated? After also being nominated for Best Picture?

    What about you guys?

    Inception was a blast and a fascinating premise... but too many of the performances were completely wooden and uninteresting given how fascinating the story was. I've not seen The Fighter, Black Swan or True Grit yet... but The Kings Speech and The Social Network featured way more engaging characters despite a far less "complex story". I know at some point you should take the full scope of the film into account... but I wouldn't consider leaving Nolan off the list a snub.

    Leonardo DiCaprio was ****ing boring as hell and he was carrying that movie.


    Toy Story 3 wasn't "Best Movie of the Year" good. I think I'm going to grow tired of the obligatory Pixar presence in that category. If Cars 2 gets nominated it'll be an outrage.

    I can't understand why they would only have three movies on there. Are they really that desperate to avoid genre films?

    Yes. And the one true representative 'WolfMan' was more cgi than anything. Bastards!
