Very similar to the Golden Globe nominees … but we already knew that was going to happen!

This morning, the nominees for this year's Academy Awards were announced and the best of the best in Hollywood has A LOT to celebrate. From George Clooney to Meryl Streep, we don't think there is an A-lister left out of the pool this year and rightly so — it was a GREAT year for movie. (P.S. - This marks Meryl's 17th nomination! Crazy!)

Scorsese's Hugo leads the pack with a whopping 11 nominations across the board, but do you know who our personal favorite nomination is? Melissa McCarthy for Bridesmaids! Yes!!! So well deserved! As was The Muppets' nomination for "Man or Muppet" for best Original Song! We knew they would get in there somehow! And for all you Potterhead fans out there, fear not; the final film managed a nod for Art Direction, so it isn't going completely unrecognized. (Then again, there was one more available spot to fill in the Best Picture category. Juuuuuust saying!)

  1. 1

    Yeah!!!! Meryl Streep better wins this year!!!! she was amazing in The Iron Lady!



  2. 2

    Rooney Mara? Really?
    Does that mean she will get even more ALOOF now and let us all know all the time?



  3. 3

    Yawn. Most boring list ever. Nothing to see here. Move on.



  4. 4

    Wooho, best foreign film: Rundskop!!!!



  5. 5

    This was not a particularly good year for movies , nothing really stood out for me. Am sick of George Clooney he's the same character in every movie, he has no versatility what so ever, he simply plays himself in just about every film he's in.



  6. 6

    Quite frankly, the only exciting thing on this list is that Bridesmaids got a couple nominations. Everything else kind of bores me. And Rooney Mara annoys me.
    But I'll admit it: I'm pissed they couldn't keep the Best Picture list extended to 10, even if only to give pretend nominations to Bridesmaids and Harry Potter. And honestly, if Harry Potter doesn't walk away with at least ONE of those technical awards, it will be the biggest snub after everything that series has done for movies.



  7. 7

    The nominations suck, how the hell did Hugo get 11 nods?



  8. 8

    r u guys kidding me? THis is the Emperors New Clothes! Bridesmaids was not a good movie. It was a Hangover copycat, totally scripted and predictable and bathroom humor will win Melissa McCarthy an Oscar nod? My intelligence was insulted by the entire movie. How can a performance like Octavia's in the Help be judged against taking a crap in a sink? come on people….

    How on earth did Jonah Hill recieve an Oscar nomination and Michael Fassbender didn't? Furthermore, Rooney Mara over Tilda Swinton? Are they crazy?



  10. 10

    Also, I would like to add that it's a sad commentary on our current movies that in our nostalgia-clogged culture, most of our nominations basically say, "Hey, look how our great our movies USED to be."



  11. 11

    This is the first yr I am not interested in most of the movies. I saw Hugo, which had beautiful cinematography and very sweet script but a little long and dragged in places. All the rest seem like LIFETIME movies of the week, films.



  12. 12

    how anyone cane possible say anything bad about george clooney blows my mind.



  13. 13

    eh… these were all so predictable.. talk about a bore.



  14. 14

    ryan gosling was robbed. He had two great prefromances this year. wow



  15. 15

    Yes The Help!!! Why was Mr. Shit Pie not nominated for Best Supporting Actor? He and Octavia stole the show.



  16. 16

    These nominations are embarrassing. Like seriously Rango was terrible… it couldn't decide if it wanted to be a kid's movie or an adult movie and got stuck in the middle (it was the worst!). The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was also really boring. Where's Super 8? What the heck!



  17. 17

    Re: Nicco Street – AMEN! The movies this year were so bad. I usually hit up the movies like once every 2 weeks or so, and I hardly went at all this year. There was nothing to see.

    Re: Katiedora – Harry Potter does not deserve an Oscar… I don't know why people think that. Sure there were a lot of them, but that's not a good enough reason to give them awards! I loved the books, and I like the acting in the movies….. BUT the academy needs to hold the Oscar's to some kind of higher esteem. However I would have chosen Harry Potter over Bridemaids or the The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo any day! The Oscars are turning into kind of a joke…

    Re: jjtinlove – Seriously!! Drive was an amazing performance for him.

    Hugo got so many nods because of the directors history, it has nothing to do with the calibre of the film because it probably isn't any good. The Oscars have become about patting certain people on the back over and over again.

    BTW It's kind of annoying how Harry Potter seems to not get recognized, especially since it's the last film. They've done amazing things for the industry, yet are ignored during these ceremonies.



  21. 21

    Most of the nominations are great, but Extremely Loud and Incredibly close gets a best picture nomination over Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2? Doesn't it have like, a 45% on Rotten Tomatoes? Harry Potter had over 96%. I know this awards ceremony isn't based on Rotten Tomatoes, but doesn't that tell you something?



  22. 22

    Re: ginadoll – Yes well films do tend to have scripts.



  23. 23

    Boring list…….. btw it's Bichir not Bachir. You need an edior STAT

    Rooney Mara got a best actress nomination and Tilda Swinton was left out? WTF???



  25. 25

    It wasn't a strong year to be honest. Nice to see Tinker Tailor getting some recognition, what about Shame though?



  26. 26

    Is there an age restriction on how old you have to be to be nominated because that boy from Extremely Loud, Incredibly close was amazing. Fuck Brad Pitt, why not recognize some new actors.



  27. 27

    Re: C.L.B – My thoughts exactly regarding both. I'm amazed Shame didn't get a single nomination for anything. And Rooney Mara was good, but Tilda Swinton was amazing.

    Re: jjtinlove – Agreed!

    I'm really mad Harry Potter got snubbed. Alan Rickman and Ralph Fiennes did some of the most brilliant performances I've ever seen. The Oscars are so concerned with nominating indie and dramatic movies, they seem to ignore big motion pictures. Rickman's perform was subtle yet complex. Also, I think Drive should have gotten a big nomination, it was amazing.

    Clooney seems alright to me. I just read an article on Rock Cellar Magazine where he comes across as a solid guy.
