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.

I mean no disrespect here, as I agree with many of the points you make.  But you really must reconsider your style of writing in half-Twitspeak/half-English and totally random use of capital letters and punctuation.  It makes it very difficult to understand the very good points you're trying to express.

Tilda and Dunst (who I expected to be snubbed) were performances I would have nominated

Same for Oswalt and Brooks in the supporting category. 

Shailene Woodley not being nominated was unfortunate but they needed to give Jessica Chastain something, girl needs her own category. 

I think Mulligan and Fassbender were ignored because some members of the Academy probably refused to watch an NC-17 film. 

A Separation, Bridesmaids, Drive, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, even if you did not personally like those films, you at least had to respect more than Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.

Scorsese coasted.  Hugo should have been cut down to at least a half-hour.  Give me Lynne Ramsey or Nicolas Winding Refn over middle-grade Scorsese. 

Menken's song for Captain America.  It was fun and cheesy, and actually followed the rules of not just being in the credits but actually in the middle of the film.

Elton John's song wasn't nominated. He must be in a hell of a tizzy. And Madonna's was ruled ineligible. So we are denied another battle royale between the two divas. And instead of Elton/Gaga performing on the telecast, we'll see a Muppet song and a song from Rio.

Madonna's shit movie W.E. got a costume nomination. Well, the gowns are probably nice.

What kind of idiot would nominate Bridesmaids for best "original" screenplay?

Giving Kristen Wiig something since there was no little chance she would have been in the Best Actress category.
