      Sweet list this year. I don't think I ever remember a PG film leading the Oscars in the entire span of my life. And I haven't seen it yet! *facepalm* :P

              @moviegeek Then I'm lost why they choose Puss in Boots over TinTin. Best Animation is going to Rango (I'm all for that) but the category is going to be less tense now. Weird that TinTin won the Best Animation in PGA.

                  Oh, and I still need to see "Hugo" too.

                    I do choose "Rango" for Best Animated Feature, but I really think "Tintin" deserves a nomination too.

                    • redcameraman • 3 years ago

                      "Harry Potter 7 (Part 2)" deserves more nominations, but at least it might win for Best Visual Effects. Either that or "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" will (still love them both though). I haven't even seen "War Horse" yet, but I will sometime.

                          @JennyL They didn't deem it ineligible. It was in the lot of films to be considered for nomination so it was eligible. BUT, I'm VERY happy to see it's score recognized. It's my favorite score of this year. Williams outdoes himself with this AND War Horse.

                              *sigh* I guess Academy decide TinTin is not eligible due to the motion capturing because I think it should be nominated over Puss in Boots. Sad that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is not in BP category. Jonah Hill does not deserve to be in that spot.

                                Man, f*ck the academy awards.....they always snub the films that deserve it. You are telling me that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II both dont deserve to get nominated for Best Picture, but films that completely underperform or are overrated, even films like Warhorse, do??

                                Say what you want about the Harry Potter films being nominated.....but even most critics agree that the last film in particular deserved to be nominated.

                                While I liked Warhorse, and I friggin love Spielberg, that film, by no stretch of the imagination, lived up to the expectations I had for it. The only category that I feel it deserves to be nominated in is Cinematography, because it looked phenomenal.

                                Therefore, in terms of Best Picture, the only film that I feel truly deserves it, that was actually nominated, is Hugo.

                                As always, the nominations disappoint greatly. There are just too many politics involved in these awards for me to be emotionally invested in who actually wins.

                                  Hope Hugo wins best picture. That film was great.

                                    Potter, Dragon Tattoo, Drive, 50/50 & Warrior got snubbed in my opinion.

                                        I don't understand how we live in a world where Jonah Hill gets a nod for acting but David Fincher gets ignored for directing. Moneyball was great and I'm pulling for Brad Pitt, but this ridiculous.
