    American Hustle is the most overrated movie I have ever seen.

    I thought the performances of Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and especially Bradley Cooper were mediocre at best.

    This movie was a glorified soap opera to me.

    That's interesting to hear; I decided not to see the movie after watching an extended preview and after four minutes my mind was made up that the the characterization seemed almost like caricature. Perhaps it was an homage to the way "crooks" were portrayed in the 70s, so I am open to the possibility that this was purposeful, but it didn't seem watchable to me.

    I think All is Lost is just too weird. One character, no dialog.

    If you enjoy 30-40 minutes of characters making out on screen you would love American Hustle

    I'm really interested in seeing 12 Years a Slave. Usually I haven't see the majority of movies that get nominated for best picture, but I'm 6 for 9 this year.

    I was surprised Oscar Isaac didn't earn a bid.

    Just read this random fact on twitter:

    "Just remember that ron howard has more best directing oscars that Fellini, Hitchcock, Malick, Altman, and Kubrick combined." - Mathew Zeitlin

    Wow.

    This one shocked me. Jonah Hill has more career oscar nominations than Robert Redford. What the hell!?!

    Hanks being snubbed is kinda nuts too IMO.

    Who do you replace him with? And why Hanks over Oscar Isaac? Joaquin Phoenix?

    Re: Oscar nominations are out

    Overall a good list, although I'm disappointed the Academy only watched about nine movies this year.

    Not giving any nominations to films like Fruitvale Station, Short Term 12, Mud, Side Effects, etc (basically lesser seen fare) is too bad. How is it possible that all of the best performances were in the same 10 movies? Was nobody else in the film industry trying?

    Re: Oscar nominations are out

    I'm pretty surprised that "All is Lost" and Redford didn't get more love. Best Actor is a tough category this year and all those performances are great, but Redford certainly deserved it. I also liked the movie more than a few others on the list. It didn't have a chance of winning so it doesn't matter that much I guess.

    I thought American Hustle had Oscar-worthy performances from Christian Bale's comb-over and Amy Adams' chest.
