  1. 10 Best Picture noms is still the biggest mistake and the crassest decision in the history of Hollywood.

  2. To paraphrase Jon Stewart…

    “For those of you keeping score at home, it’s Three Six Mafia: 1. Christopher Nolan: 0.”

      1. Wins, not noms. Three Six Mafia won Original Song for Hustle & Flow. Also, Nolan was previously nominated for Memento.

  3. Congratulations to the Winter’s Bone team & great job from producer Alix Madigan-Yorkin for bringing this small film to us

    1. “Winter’s Bone” was patronizing nonsense.

      I popped in the disc and knew I was going to see people pickin’ and grinnin’ on the porch playing their old mountain tunes, a few hundred cars up on cinder blocks and people with meth mouth and mangy dogs and a strange obsession with the weird things the characters eat and a bunch of obviously local, non-professional actors cast for their look alone who would be painful to watch sharing the screen with professional actors (the scenes with the army recruiter and the fat biker dude in the vest were absolute jokes).

      And I got all this and more in just the first 20 minutes. This was a New Yorker’s view of this region, it was patronizing and it was crap.

      The script was crap. We saw the same scene (“Don’t you come around here asking about your pa, little girl!”) over and over and over and over. Nothing new, nothing changing. Then after about an hour of “You be careful goin’ roun’ askin’ bout your pa, little girl!”), then some characters we don’t even know show up literally on the protagonist’s doorstep and solve all her problems for her. Uh, OK.

      Lawrence was OK and Hawkes was good, but the nominations getting showered on this little mess of a movie are more indicative of the utter dearth of quality coming out of Hollywood than the merits of this movie.

      1. it’s not indicative of the dearth of movies — it’s just not a great film getting four nominations that it doesn’t deserve — there’s Scott Pilgrim, the town, how to train a dragon (which is actually better than toy story).

        Anne Hathaway, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Rachel mcadams, — all better than jennifer lawrence.

        But truly those fans of winter’s bone out there — what is so great, because i don’t get it.

      2. I’m southern and Winter’s Bone is one of the few movies that gets it right. It is not patronizing at all. Debra Granik worked with the people in the Missouri Ozarks to get things pitch perfect. The house Jennifer Lawrences’ character lives in is the actual home of the little local girl who plays her daughter. Costumes came out of the closets. All actors had small rural town backgrounds. The untold story of the movie is that large agri-business has forced small farmers into the meth business in order to survive. This movie is absolutely one of the 10 best this year. I only wish Mother and Kawasaki’s Rose would have received Best Foreign nominations.

  4. Winter’s Bone is the little movie that could. Congratulations to Jennifer Lawrence (age 20) for her nomination.
    Also congratulations to Hailee Steinfeld (age 14) for True Grit amazing little actress.
    I believe these are the youngest nominees we’ve seen in awhile.

    1. I would think that Hailee Steinfeld would be nominated for best LEADING actress. Don’t you? I mean she had virtually all of the screen time and she was the main character. At least she is nominated though.

  5. If Jacki Weaver could snag a nom for the little seen/known “Animal Kingdon”…
    why couldn’t WRENN SCHMIDT get a MUCH-DESERVED nom. for her fabulous docu performance as Eliot Spitzer’s ‘girl’ in CLIENT #9?

    1. That’s awesome!
      And while we’re at it, why couldn’t The Tourist be nominated for best picture? Best movie of the year.
      Just kidding. It’s fun to have that now and again. I mean after seeing a movie like Salt get nominated for ANYTHING, I think we can crack jokes like that all day long, but nothing will compare to how huge a joke Salt being nominated is.

      1. Always have to get that anti-Angie dig in there, eh? By the way it is a technical award; Achievement in sound mixing, so you can calm down somewhat. Congratulations to Jeffrey J. Haboush, Greg P. Russell, Scott Millan and William Sarokinon for Salt and its nomination. I don’t know what exactly sound mixing encompasses but I enjoyed the ride.

  6. 10 best pictures undermines any value of a film being referred to as, “NOMINATED FOR BEST PICTURE”

  7. How can the academy nominate Inception for BEST PICTURE, BEST SCREENPLAY, CINEMATOGRAPHY, ART DIRECTION and more, yet NOT nominate the man who DIRECTED it? Makes no sense to me.

      1. The Academy is in full-on “out of touch” mode, just like they were in the old days. We all know Jaws, Star Wars, Apocalypse Now and Raiders of the Lost Ark were the TRUE best pictures of their respective years.

        Then for a while the Academy seemed like they came to their senses…at least for a little while – Braveheart in 95, Gladiator in 00. And Lord of the Rings in 2003.

        When the Hobbits won, these pants-shitting geriatric fuckbags must have screamed, “we gave the Oscar to a fantasy movie?! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Jesus H monkeyballs, what have we done?!”

        Hence they’ve been fanatically anti-genre ever since.

        2008’s REAL best picture: Dark Knight.
        2009’s REAL best picture: Avatar or District 9. take your pick.
        2010’s REAL best picture: Inception (and if you don’t like it, fuck off and watch your copy of Jackass 3)

        The Academy is an irrelevant collection of buffoons. Good god, they can’t even get the technical noms right. (No Tron for best visual effects? Tranformers snubbed for best visuals in favor of a coca cola polar bear movie? And can someone explain how Slumdog Millionaire, shot by a drunken epileptic waving a cell phone camera, wins best cinematography over the Dark Knight – which had action scenes ACTUALLY FILMED WITH A GODDAMN IMAX CAMERA?! NOT DIGITALLY BLOWN UP, BUT FUCKING SHOT IN FUCKING IMAX?!)

        I’ll be cranking up my copy of Inception on Oscar night.

        Suck my ass, you out of touch elitist piles of shit.

        suck. my. ass.

  8. I agree. with 10 best picture nominations, anyone who is said to get in, will get in. No surprises…no fun. I understand 7 nominations maybe but 10 is just a free for all. At least I get to enjoy the exciting disappointment of seeing julianne Moore snubbed once again.

  9. Was The Social Network really “Sound” movie?

    Also, there’s no drama now that there’s 10 best picture nominations. Everything that’s prognosticated in advance gets a nomination. Boooooooooooooring. Remember how much more exciting it was 2 years ago when The Reader was nominated over The Dark Night or even Doubt? THAT was exciting, and it gave people something to talk about.

  10. Christopher Nolan robbed again – he should have been nominated for best director for Dark Night two years ago and for Inception this year!

  11. I’d like to thank the Academy and “The Kids Are All Right” for opening up the best picture category to below average comedies plagued with hackneyed stereotypes and wooden acting.

  12. I think Despicable Me was robbed in the animated feature category.

    I haven’t seen The Illusionist, and I suspect that it deserves to win. But Toy Story 3 was a sequel and a mess, and my daughter came out of it angry at me for taking her to it.

    Dragon was fine but not particularly memorable, and it wasn’t nearly as original as The Book of Kells.

    Despicable Me was funny and moving, and it had the best in-theater promotional displays (Minion punching bags) ever. When I got the DVD and played it at home, the spouse who makes me “A spouse” kept asking, “Wait, who’s playing that voice? And who’s playing that voice?”

    So, The Illusionist may win the Oscar, and Toy Story 3 and How to Train Your Dragon will go away with nominations, but I think Despicable Me will win the “kids play it again and again until the DVD wears out” prize.

  13. FILMMAKER: “Why didn’t you call to congratulate me on my nomination?”
    EXEC/AGENT/MANAGER/PRODUCER: “What do you mean? Didn’t you read the comments section on Deadline?”

  14. DID ANYONE ELSE THINK THAT TRUE GRIT WAS AN ABSOLUTE BORE? Obviously the cohen’s (who are great) can do no wrong in the academy’s eyes, but there truly is something puzzling why they keep snubbing christopher nolan (both years he was recognized by every organization including the DGA). It’s as if they don’t know the meaning of the word — directing.

    Glad to see that Black Swan is showing some weakness — no screenplay nod? Hopefully Natalie portman doesn’t win — i love natalie and good in black swan but she does come close to giving the best performance that Nicole Kidman gives in Rabbit Hole. Please academy — watch rabbit hole before casting your vote! And Annette Bening, one of our finest actresses ever should receive one too.

  15. How tragic and telling for 3D films
    -billions spent making them
    -billions spent seeing them
    -0 nominations(2 films nominated were enhanced 2D)

    One of the next biggest insults from this Academy of Elderly folk
    -Tron:Legacy, although a dud at the box office, was quite visually
    stunning and marketed so heavily that children in the womb knew
    about it…..
    -1 nomination-for sound editing

    I can sometimes feel empathy for the Academy of Elderly folk. Decades ago the products they were called upon to view contained so much quality with actorsactresses giving everything for their performances. In 2010, the selection to choose from for nominations has grown to be such an embarrassment to film making and acting. If this caliber of film were the norm back in 1982, we would be discussing the merits of the nominations received by Porky’s.

  16. What about Shutter Island? I’m not usually a huge Leo fan, but I think his performance was the best he’s ever given and certainly one of the best of the year.
