    If you watched Django unchained.. you should be upset that Samuel L Jackson wasn't nominated for best supporting actor. He NAILED that role.

    Same with Dicaprio IMO.


    I'm actually kind of surprised Batman didn't get a single nomination...not that it particularly deserves one, but even the Avengers got one. And I guess I wasn't too far off when I immediately thought "pandering" when I first heard of Zero Dark Thirty.

    What a weak year for actresses, both leading and supporting. I have a massive crush on Jessica Chastain, but still. Not much going on there.

    Anne Hathaway has supporting in the bag. Her performance was just spellbinding...

    I have a love/hate relationship with the Oscars.

    I love to hate them. Not a single nomination for Looper. Way to go Academy, you pretenious group of old farts.

    You seem surprised. Does this actually surprise you? You gotta remember: Award shows are just showbiz insiders getting all their friends in a room so they can hand awards to them. Nothing more, nothing less.
