for your consideration ads

We LOVE us some Ry Ry, but there's no effing way that Green Lantern deserves any of these awards, except MAYBE Best Visual Effects or something…

The first round of For Your Consideration ads have been released, and we're not surprised by TOO many of the films going for that Best Picture Oscar!

We're glad to see Moneyball and The Ides of March here…but what about that other Ryan Gosling movie we saw this year? Where's Drive??? Hopefully we'll see that one show up in round two!

Check out the first For Your Consideration ads (below), and let us know which films U think deserve to win big this year!

P.S. Green Lantern?!?!?!? Is that a joke or what, Variety?!?!?!?!?!?

    I'd say this is pretty obviously a joke…

    Warrior was so much better than I was expecting. And if Moneyball wins ANYTHING, I'll stop watching the Oscars. Frankly, I should say that about any nominations it gets too, but I still have faith that they'll laugh that dull drama off.

    I hope Harry Potter gets an Oscar.

    And so many of them I haven't seen, so I really can't judge. Honestly, I think the only one I've seen is Rango.

    It's obviously a joke. The quotes are, "Certainly better than Thor." And "The mythology is nonsensical and the plot takes forever to get going. But once it does, … "

    Limitless and the Devils Double were two of the best movies i've seen in awhile. Both are great stories, make you think and have believable characters (good acting), however neither of them are up for consideration that I can see.
    Green Lantern and Moneyball were two of the worst from this year. They have actors I like but the movies sucked. Meh…The Oscars don't seem to reflect exceptional work anymore, just popularity.

    LMAO about your "WTF" on Green Lantern. The movie was decent. Rango was AWFUL. Harry Potter was amazing. Single tear. Out of all of them Super 8 though should definitely win Best Picture. I freakin' loved that movie!!!

    Re: hollister503 – Don't forget Blake Lively as Best Supporting Actress!

    Re: hollister503 – LOL OMGoodness I didn't even see the quotes!

    obviously a joke if you take the 20 seconds to read the quotes

    I honestly haven't seen them all, but I'd like to see some of them win an oscar.
    The Artist was incredible; Warrior was so much more than I thought it would be; Glenn Close is always fantastic; and the last Harry Potter movie was excellent. The acting was not strong enough to win an oscar in the "best actor/tress" category though. Although, to be fair, it's mostly because of the characters, not the actors.

    Green Lantern is obviously a joke. Rango does NOT deserve an oscar. Super 8 wasn't great. It was an entertaining summer movie, but that's all.
    I hated Tintin. Something about how it looks. I find it really disturbing. Either way too realistic, or not enough. Plus, I'm not a fan of the books, so…

    Haven't seen The Ides of March yet.

    And Moneyball seems overrated. But it hasn't come out here yet, so I'll see.

    The green lantern pic was funny but it'd be hilarious if they put images from that horrible Jack and Jill movie Sandler did.

    So happy to see Super 8 and Harry Potter here. I thought both (along with Water for Elephants) have been the best movies of 2011 up to date. Green Lantern? One of the worst!

    Harry Potter should win. It's TEN years in the making. Not to mention Emma Watson said she spent more time playing Hermione than being herself. They deserve this. TEN years of hard work. Not to mention, they improved so much each movie, as far as their acting goes. DHP2 was amazing. I'm a Harry Potter book fan, and still this movie did it for me. They did a great job.

    This movie was crap at the bottom of my shoe. If it gets nominated for an oscar I'm going to drown myself.

    Harry Potter has GOT to get at least one Oscar! Definitely deserves best picture or best director or BOTH!

    That costume is so awful. Compare it to ANY of the Batman costumes, and it just sucks. They should have used an actual costume, and not gone the GCI route. Also, that mask is so stupid. The comic book version looks of Green Lantern looks WAAAYYYY better!

    Are they serious…? And if the academy is/isn't considering you a stupid poster won't change anything. Would like to see Harry Potter get something (maybe Rickman for best supporting actor) but doubt it will happen.
