  1. 1

    Oh snap! Tyler Perry snubbed again, what an outrage!

  2. 2

    so not interested in this years. they nominated all those movies just to get everyone to watch.

  3. 3

    I am shocked Johnny Depp and "Public Enemy" are not Oscar Contenders. Then again, it's all about releasing your movie as close to March as possible. I think Public Enemy should have been a serious contener for Best Picture.

  4. 4


  5. 5

    Good luck Kathryn Bigelow.

  6. 6

    If Avatar gets best picture again, I have utterly lost all faith in anybody's taste for movies.

  7. 7

    omg!!!!!!!avatar 4oscar as a best picture??????kiss my ass!

  8. 8

    taraji p henson should've been nominated for her role in 'i can do bad all by myself' she did amazing! and if Gabourey Sidibe and Mo'nique do not win i will be immensly pissed!!

  9. 9

    What a great selection! Dissapointed with Avatar though…
    Pleasantly surprised by District 9!

  10. 10

    "La teta asustada" is nominayed yayy!! kudos to Claudia Llosa

  11. 11

    yes !
    "El secreto de sus ojos" is nominated :)
    btw, "Public Enemy" is a terrible movie, both Depp and Bale were awful

    Re: wwefan01 – Then apparently you haven't seen The Hurt Locker. Oh, but then again, you probably don't like well-planned movies.

  14. 14

    Re: 01badgirl – Public Enemies was not nominated because it just wasn't a great movie, at all. Mediocre at best. Not that I didn't like it, just not a great movie. As far as Johnny Depp, he's always great performer. Maybe the Academy just figures it's a given and nominate other actors.

  15. 15

    Well, I think the biggest indicator that the 10 movies nominated thing is flawed is that

    THE BLIND SIDE was total fluff… it does not belong in that category. Sandra Bullock in the Blind Side, yes, but the movie itself, no.

    Also, what's up with Up being nominated in the top 10 and in Animated Feature Film? This sure looks like a lock for Up for Animated Feature Film (not that it wasn't a lock for that anyways)

  16. 16

    anna kendrick seriously?

  17. 17

    my man BBD! where you've been?

  18. 18

    yeah, expect that Public Enemy SUCKED. what a joke!

  19. 19

    Notice how Avatar is NOT nominated for best original screenplay.. i think it would be a disgrace if it won best picture when clearly there are other nominees who have produced better quality films ( meaning way better story lines and dialogue, also more heart-wrenching material than Avatar)
    dont get me wrong i loved avatar but honestly for the longest time i thought i was watching pocahontas meets ferngully…
    compared to all the movies that are nominated i believe avatar is lacking originality and if it won best picture it would ruin the reason why we have the oscars in the first place….
    screw viewership .. dont abandon those who have been faithful to the award show by trying to attract a younger crowd..

  20. 20

    I didnt see any of the movies for best actress but I hope Sandra wins!

  21. 21

    if u haven't, pls go see 'up in the air'. it is one helluva movie. im rooting for reitman. im finding myself loving his movies so much. they are so memorable.

    go sibide and mo'nique!

    and morgan!

    and my personal favs - best friends and 2 of the greatest living actors, streep and tucci.

  22. 22

    woo, District 9!

  23. 23

    Christoph Waltz has to win. He is the best of all the nominated actors. He was the freaking star of Inglourious Basterds.

  24. 24

    I've seen most of the Best Pic. nom's Really good crop this year.

  25. 25

    LITTLE ASHES should have been nominated! Have you seen the movie? Javier Beltran and Robert Pattinson where amazing! I admit, I watched the movie at first, just because I appreciate Robert, but I had a shock!! I forgot who this guy was, that played Salvador Dali. He kind of lost all of himself in this character. I cried and laughed and was appalled during the entire movie, and that doesn't happen to often for me. Javier Beltran just made me want to learn Spanish so that I could read Federico Garcia Lorca's poems in his native language. I love the fact that in his reading of poems you could also hear him in English and Spanish. The relationship between the two of them, I think is one of the most beautiful love stories, portrayed amazingly by these two very talented actors. But as always in life, as the story of the movie itself shows, life isn't always fair, so it was only natural that this movie wasn't really acclaimed by the critics, with only one nomination. I guess it's really hard for them to recognize the true talent of an actor, when he has so much success portraying a teen vampire in a hit movie. (For those of you who will mention "How to be", let's all remember this movie won all those awards before Twilight).

    Re: xcalibur – I don't dislike Mariah as a person, but you're right on what you said. I still don't get the hype about her average at best performance. It's obvious that Mo'Nique and Gabby are the standouts, not her. Maybe because she did a crap job in "Glitter" and step up a bit.

  28. 28

    i hope meryl wins this time, after all those nominees she deservers her 3rd oscar!

  29. 29

    Not Meryl Streep again! If she wins this one, then clearly the year has not been all that great!

  30. 30

    Re: Wenchtits – I agree

  31. 31

    Re: Harry is baaack – FUCK YOU YOU FAKE!

  32. 32

    [re=4719255]Re: Harry is baaack EAT A DICK BLIND BABY!

  33. 33

    Harry Potter nominated. FUCK YEAHHHH =D

  34. 34

    Inglourious Basterds for the win Baby

  35. 35

    I want Precious to win Best Actress…she was soooo good!! District 9 was a good movie….I recommend it!!

  36. 36


  37. 37

    Re: Wenchtits – Agreed. Oscars have always been a joke, but with a recycled shitfest like Avatar being nominated for Best Picture, its hit an all-time low.

  38. 38


    The nominees seem like par for the course, couple (good) surprises such as "District 9" being nominated for best Picture.

    Re: CandyDanny

    You leave Anna Kendrick alone! She's fucking adorable, yo! She could be one my many future ex-wives one day!

  39. 39

    "Up" nominated for Best Picture? Are you kidding me? As if Best Animated Picture wasn't enough. It wasn't even a great movie.

  40. 40

    The academy did not go for The Hangover despite the rumours it may branch into comedy. AS IF.

  41. 41

    anna kendrick?? wow

  42. 42

    I have a bone to pick with some of these choices but oh well, what can ya do about it.
    So when are the Oscars?

  43. naima says – reply to this


    Omg that little girl from Precious should win. She was just fantastic in that movie. And Perez please dont tell us that dirty Snookie or any member of the "Jersey whore" will be attending the Oscars cz then i'll just quit watching it period.

  44. 44

    WOOT!! Jeremy Renner!!

  45. 45

    meryl streep is so consistent, every year she gives at least one amazing performance. if you saw her as julia child and it didn't give you chills then you obviously don't know great acting. she transformed into julia child. she totally deserves her third. let's stop with all the nominations and just give her a win. please? :)

  46. 46

    I love Meryl Streep but I hated her in Julie and Julia.

  47. 47

    I'm suprised The Lovely Bones didn't get more nominations!

  48. R3LS says – reply to this


    Aaaaw, Star Treks not up for any biggies.

  49. 49

    if james cameron wins best dirtector and/or avatar wins best picture…i swear to god Hollywood will have officially gone insane!

  50. 50

    Can't wait!!!!

  51. 51

    Wow, I can't believe 'The Road' hasn't received any nominations - esp. Viggo Mortensen for best actor. He ripped my heart out in that movie…

  52. 52

    goooo avatar!!!

  53. 53

    Inglourious Bastards for the win!!!
