Oscars 2011 Nominations!

submit to reddit

Surprises: Nolan was overlooked for Directing, Boyle missed a directing nod, Jacki Weaver got a nomination, Mila Kunis missed her nomination, no Waiting for Superman, Inception was passed for editing, Black Swan was snubbed for Another Year in screenplay, Tron got snubbed for visual effects, Alice failed to get a Make-up nod, and what the frak is with the 4-nominees Song category?

Yay for: Michelle Williams! The Illusionist!

Word: Looks like Black Swan just got dropped out of the race, and True Grit got back on.

How we did: I did most horrible in Director, Sound Mixing, Documentary, and Foreign Film. But I got five perfect 5s, including score! Grizzly got all 10 picture nominations. And The Tempest! And The Coen Brothers! Without alternates: Me: 84/105 nominations guessed (that actually materialized - 4 songs category threw me off!) = 80%. Grizzly: 86/105 = 81.9%. With alternates: Me: 94/105 nominations guessed = 89.5%. Grizzly: (without Dark Horse!) 92/105 nominations guessed = 87.6% and (with Dark Horse, a.k.a. cheating!) 99/105 = 94.3%!!

Someone got up early!

I saw Animal Kingdom just the other day and it's really, really overrated. When I saw afterwards that it has 96% on Rotten Tomatoes I nearly spit my milk out.. If I'd had any milk in my mouth, that is. Overrated movie, and Weaver.. Ugh. Overrated. This category didn't need any more psycho moms.

My only consolation is that I don't have any major favourite that missed out for Supporting Actress (that had a chance, anyway) so I can live with it.. Though I haven't seen Black Swan yet.

January 25, 2011 at 10:19 AM

Barbara Hershey must be feeling very sorry for herself now. Black Swan sank! Kinda!

January 25, 2011 at 10:38 AM

You put Jacki Weaver in over Amy Adams, not Mila Kunis.. So maybe that's where you counted differently than me?

Not that it matters, I did well on some ways, you did better in others (getting 5/5 for Score is practically unheard of, it's usually so hard to predict).. And you got more alternates than me.

January 25, 2011 at 11:12 AM


Yay I'm so awesome for Score. Thanks for doing this with me!

Now I can go back to bed!


January 25, 2011 at 11:16 AM

LOL, go back to bed? It's past 8 am.. Don't you have to get up by now and do grown-up stuff? ;)

Anyway, I sent you an email. Short one.

January 25, 2011 at 1:53 PM

Grown up stuff had to wait. I got some sleeping to do. :P
