Re: Oscar Nominations are out
Kinda shocked that Christopher Nolan didn't get a nomination for Best Director -- I thought what he did with "Inception" was light-years better than Aronofsky's "Balck Swan" (which I found to be highly disappointing).
Also kinda shocked that "The Town" didn't make the cut for Best Picture. With 10 slots, that's pretty inexcusable -- especially since they wasted a nomination on "Toy Story 3," knowing full well that it has it's own category to win (Best Animated), and that the Academy is never going to vote an animated film as BP.
I agree with the assessment that the Actor/Actress statues are decided, at this point. I'd also say BP is a two-horse race between "Social Network" and "The King's Speech." My gut tells me that "Kings" will win, but my last two BP predictions (Frost/Nixon in '09 and Avatar in '10) have been way off.
