    why there is no nomination for TDKR.? n why no nominations to kathryn bigelow n ben affleck especially k.bigelow has won lot of other awards n affleck won annuel critics choice awards..? n how many voters r included in voting process ?

  • Ignatius Albert | January 11, 2013 7:06 AMReply

    Hugh Jackman is also receiving his first nomination, along with Cooper, Wallis & Riva.

    Best Directing was definitely the most shocking of all announced yesterday. You can even hear the gasps of disbelief among the audience in the studio. Kathryn Bigelow & Ben Affleck (whom many had thought to be locks) should have been nominated instead, while Quentin Tarantino had a very strong case.
    No offence to Ben Zeitlin, but I think he came out of nowhere to snatch a nomination. And I don't think his name would have been mentioned as a strong contender by most observers.
    Nonetheless, there is no denying all the 5 listed nominees are accomplished filmmakers so congrats to them.
    Michael Haneke won Palme d'Or and now an Oscar nomination with 'Amour', a pinnacle moment to his career; while Ang Lee and David O Russell's nominations had been widely expected.
    I feel there is not much stopping Spielberg from winning now though.

    My picks, or rather the 6 most likely winners in the major categories
    Best Picture: Lincoln - Best Director: Steven Spielberg - Best Actor: Daniel Day Lewis - Best Actress: Jessica Chastain - Best Supporting Actor: Tommy Lee Jones - Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway

    This year's nominations proved to be eclectic and quite contrasting to say the least. I'm glad the Academy voter's recognized an opportunity to commemorate smaller features for once (Ex. Drive Snub). Overall the choices are def. worthy of their recognition. Sad to see directorial snubs for Bigelow, Affleck, and both Andersons!) I'm predicting Phoenix for a Best Actor win, Riva for actress, Jones or Hoffman for Supporting actor, Hathaway for support. actress respectfully, and lastly Lee for Picture/Director (He's definitely an overdue recipient for Best Picture). Although I could be wrong and indeed Lincoln will sweep every major category haha!

    GASP! a Denis Lavant snub is PREPOSTEROUS! (Can you say Fassbender again).

  • Henry | January 10, 2013 6:46 PMReply

    Marion Cotillard had to be nominated not Wallis

  • MikeRezus | January 10, 2013 4:53 PMReply

    I've watched it here http://megashane.info/watch-lincoln-online-tlrnek1bpt0 and i like lincoln moovie a lot. and I think Amy Adams should have been left out!

  • Guesty | January 10, 2013 11:22 AMReply

    Really surprised PTA didnt at least get an original screenplay nom. Bigalows snub sortof makes sense but PTAs annoys me to no end. Also, i think they have something against leo, how he didnt at least get a nomination is beyond me.

  • jingmei | January 10, 2013 11:08 AMReply

    John Hawkes definitely should be nominated. They really gave the indie representive Beasts of the Southern Wild a big face. But by all means the Academy never finds a real balance, just dominates the shallow mainstream, so it's just boring. Needless to say they always miss out something valuable for real potentially on purpose.

  • Evan | January 10, 2013 11:03 AMReply

    Doesn't the Bigelow snub just show that the academy has problems nominating female directors. It's bullshit. It's some of the best direction of the year and better than her deserving win for the Hurt Locker.

  • Simon | January 10, 2013 10:41 AMReply

    No nomination for PTA? Not even for The Master's beautiful cinematography? Bullshit.

  • hamid | January 10, 2013 10:33 AMReply

    the best list

  • Michael M. | January 10, 2013 9:56 AMReply

    Michael Haneke is going to shit on everyone, and Phoenix. Finally the awards season got a little more interesting.

  • Corvo | January 10, 2013 9:45 AMReply

    Bigelow snubbed.... ahahahah yeah! I'm glad Academy is not pro-torture!

  • Rob | January 10, 2013 9:40 AMReply

    All but 4 actually... it is also Hugh Jackman's first Oscar nomination

  • Tania | January 10, 2013 9:39 AMReply

    Where is Marion Cotillard? please the Academy ruins everything like always

  • GERARD KENNELLY | February 23, 2013 2:52 PM

    @ TANIA

    i agree
    her work in RUST AND BONE just blew me away

  • Michelle | January 10, 2013 9:23 AMReply

    Academy supporting again child exploitation, fuck yourself!

  • rocky | January 10, 2013 9:22 AMReply

    This is the worst academy awards nominations ever!

  • serpico | January 10, 2013 9:22 AMReply

    Yeah, I doubt "Zero Dark" is winning best picture if it's not even nominated for director.

  • Juha Hovilainen | January 10, 2013 9:13 AMReply

    Fuck the academy....Where is Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman and Kathryn Bigelow...?
    Assholes !

  • BLOB | January 10, 2013 9:12 AMReply

    Oh my, I feel so happy and relieved. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the Best Director nominations and noticed Bigelow was nowhere to be found. This is a miracle. I haven't been this happy in quite some time.

  • Corvo | January 10, 2013 9:48 AM

    I feel exactly the same! It was a liberal miracle. Bigelow OUT! But I'm sorry for Affleck...

  • Lllll | January 10, 2013 9:38 AM

    Then you have a sad life.

  • serpico | January 10, 2013 9:11 AMReply

    Thank christ Phoenix is nominated. Yahoo had an error and replaced Phoenix with John Hawkes (who is great, btw). I nearly lost my shit after I read it. But you have the right one. Good.

  • DukeD | January 10, 2013 9:01 AMReply

    Flight screenplay over Looper...the Academy truly does hate actual originality.

  • paul | January 10, 2013 8:57 AMReply

    Amy Adams should have been left out!

  • GERARD KENNELLY | February 23, 2013 2:54 PM

    @ PAUL

    i agree
    she has already been nominated 4 times in the exact same category every time
    her nomination should have gone to Ann Dowd for COMPLIANCE

  • ??????? | January 10, 2013 8:55 AMReply

    How the hell did Snow White get two, and Cloud Atlas and The Dark Knight Rises get zero?

  • JW Dant | January 10, 2013 8:40 AMReply
