  1. Honestly, at this point I think it’s pretty well established that the Oscars are going to overlook handfuls of artists who truly deserve recognition each and every year. Not only that, but it’s also an exceedingly subjective discussion in the first place. The snubs are obviously here like Swinton, Fassbender, Brooks, and even Serkis to an extent, but it’s the Oscars and I will always watch them.

    1. I completely agree, Dan. It’s the Oscars, so I will try and catch the ceremony, but I am disappointed with the nominations.

      I’m glad Midnight in Paris has received so many noms, but I’m sure they’ll miss out to Hugo and The Artist.

  2. …thankfully Gary Oldman was nominated. It is about time too. Not that it is his best ever performance…but then again, Scorsese’s The Departed wasn’t his best film either yet it brought him the Academy’s top award. I hope Oldman wins but I’m guessing they’ll give it to someone else.
