    I've only seen three out of all those. Bullhead, Drive, and Warrior. It's nice to see Gary Oldman finally get a nomination.

    Is it just me, or was 2011 a REALLY blah year in actual film? There were some solid popcorn flicks, but nothing else. Not ONE of those films nominated for best picture do I give a shit about. And I think that REALLY says something with 10 nominees. The only films nominated in ANY categories that I have any type of interest in seeing are Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Drive.

    Also, hilarity seeing Fincher denied in both direction and best picture. And Pixar snub! Cars 2 must have been a disaster, they even found room to nominate the first one as so-so as it was back when it came out.

      Out of every movie nominated I've only seen Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Transformers 3... wow

        I said it in the shoutbox, but I'm very disappointed here.
        • No best picture for Drive or Warrior.
        • No best actor for Gosling.
        • No best actress for Dunst.
        • No best score for Drive or Hanna.
        • No best animated feature for Tin Tin.
        • No best adapted screenplay for Drive or Carnage.
        • And nothing overall for First Class (though I expected that) and Melancholia.

        And if shit like Transformers can get nominated for categories, then there is no reason that something like Immortals shouldn't be given a nod for best costume or art design if the overall quality of the movie is not taken into consideration.

        I also can't really make a personal judgement on these as I have yet to see them, but I"m surprised We Need to Talk About Kevin, Shame, and A Dangerous Method got 0 nominations based on what I've seen and heard of the movies. Same goes for Tinker Tailor Solider Spy not getting a Best Picture nom.

        The only things that make me happy is the lack of Fincher and that they didn't toss the Harry Potter flick a best movie nomination just because it was the final one.

        Oh, and I can't wait to start seeing "Oscar Nominated Actor Jonah Hill." I have no interest in seeing Moneyball so I can't accurately comment on him in it, but I refuse to believe his performance in it is award-worthy. Same goes for Melissa McCarthy

        Same here as far as the Best Picture nominees go. I've only seen The Tree of Life and wasn't a big fan, and the only other choice there that I have even a slight interest in is Midnight in Paris. I did think 2011 overall was a good year though.

          The Artist still looks totally gimmicky to me.

            Cars 2 was really crap.

            And who really cares. The Oscars only really care about filmed plays. The Kings Speech won for direction last year when Inception (say what you will about the script) wasn't even nominated. And Drive is in the same position this year. The script was minimalist sure, but it's as directed as a movie can be.

            And you know 20 years down the line The King's Speech will be forgotten and people will turn around and says "Hey, you know 13 Assassins was an incredible movie".

            So meh.

              This is how it is and how it has always been: one big, giant waste of time that is hardly worth any of our own. I agree about last year too with Inception. Nolan should have been at least nominated.

              I'm usually only interested in one or two awards and nothing's changed. The only people I'm looking forward to winning are Gary Oldman for Best Actor and Woody Allen for Best Original Screenplay. I really couldn't care less about the rest of it. Good to know Billy Crystal is coming back to host. I don't think anyone could handle another year of Twitchy and Bug-Eyes.

                Last year is one of those years like when Raging Bull and The Elephant Man lost to Ordinary People; absolutely no one will remember The King's Speech, but people will still be talking about Black Swan and Inception.

                This year though...ugh. Not one film nominated says a damn thing to me. Regardless of the stroke-fest the Oscars are, there's almost always one film nominated for best picture that I like a lot or am at least interested in seeing. With 10 films now, it's even crazier that I don't give two shits about any of them.

                  It's always amusing to see all of the dissenting comments this time of year, it's a rallying point to bitch for some/most I guess. I know I'm not going to agree with every decision, silly to think you would, but that doesn't mean there isn't a lot to enjoy here or at least be interested in.

                  Midnight in Paris and The Tree of Life are brilliant films worthy of your attention. The only snub I have a problem with is of Drive and Gosling, otherwise they did a pretty good job especially with the love The Tree of Life got since it could have easily been overlooked/ignored. I thought Bridesmaids was awful and War Horse to be blah. I also don't know why anyone here wouldn't be interested in Hugo, I'm personally expecting greatness out of The Descendants but I'm a big fan of Payne's work.

                  To me, 2011 has been a great year in film with 4 brilliant movies (Midnight in Paris, The Tree of Life, Drive, and Living in the Material World). Add to those the films I still really want to see and it blows 2010 out. I haven't even gotten into most of the popcorn flicks/superhero stuff that came out (Batman: Year One, First Class, Captain America, Thor, Green Lantern, etc. Wow, a lot came out this year actually, lots to look forward to.

                    By the way, which films from 2011, that weren't recognized, should be recognized? Other than 13 Assassins.

                        I'm not saying some of these films nominated may not be good; I just have ZERO interest in any of them. I don't like Woody Allen, which I've said a million times, and that Malick film just doesn't tickle my fancy. Hollywood is just blah at this point for me when it comes to actual cinema; the two films that I haven't seen and want to, Drive and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, come from non-American directors. Not one of these films nominated for best picture have any "pop" when it comes to my tastes; it all looks bland as hell.

                        X-Men: First Class should have been recognized in something (I thought the whole idea of expanding to 10 films for best picture was to include a film or two that doesn't normally garner best picture buzz but is damn good in its own right?), and Melancholia likely should have grabbed something too.

                          From looking at my watch list the only movies I thought that were notable, besides Drive and 13 Assassins, were all foreign. Imagine that.

                          Guilty of Romance (Japan)
                          The Skin I Live In (Spain)
                          Headhunters (Norway)
                          Underwater Love (Japan)

                          These are from 2010 but were released in 2011 in US theaters:

                          Poetry (South Korea)
                          I Saw The Devil (South Korea)
                          The Yellow Sea (South Korea)
                          Cold Fish (Japan)


                          Some 2011 movies I'm really looking forward to, but haven't seen:

                          The Raid (Indonesia)
                          The Road (Philippines)
                          Headshot (Thailand)
                          Invasion of Alien Bikini (South Korea)

                            And now I have to watch the Oscars this year.

                              Can someone here who saw Moneyball please explain to me why Brad Pitt was nominated for that instead of Tree of Life? I'm always hearing people bitch and moan as to why Tree of Life was so appealing. BECAUSE OF HIM!!! It was one of the best performances I've ever seen from an actor. Ever.
