Re: 2012 Oscar Nominations and Discussion

Good job on the Academy nominating Tree of Life for Cinematography, and Rango for Animated Film. The latter is probably the best pure animation of any movie I've ever seen in my life. Not super crazy about the movie itself, but animation-wise it was eye-popping. And Tree of Life is just insanely gorgeous to look at no matter what you think of its pretentious storytelling.

Re: 2012 Oscar Nominations and Discussion

List is ok.
Biggest failure is not nominating Michael Fassbender for best actor.
Every year I ask myself, "why even care about the Oscar's anymore".

Side note: "The Descendants" screenplay is co-written by Jim Rash, who plays Dean Pelton on "Community".

In a first for me, I've seen all Best Picture nominations before they were nominated!

Quick rants: WTF extremely loud? wtf no Drive? No Fassbender? No Shannon? WTF War Horse (slightly better than avg), WTF no Albert Brooks? Wtf white guilt and white ppl problems movies getting tons of love.

I'm really glad to see Midnight in Paris get a nod, and felt Ides of March really deserved to be included in the Best Picture list. Also pretty nice to see a comedy get nominated for best screenplay and supporting.
