Interesting. I probably only recognized the titles of two of the movies. My guess because this is an award ceremony by actors for actors that anything to do with “The Help” will win an Oscar.
I used to love watching, but that was in the old days when these people still liked being Americans. When the bashing started I stopped watching.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close for best picture?
Stupid title, unbelievable plot.
Even Rotten Tomatoes only gives it a 48%.

Guess they forgot to add Rosy O’Donnel as a security guard searching for Dick Cheney and his satchel charges.

Christopher Plummer is a lock: an actor with a long distinguished career whom has never won before, and to top it off, he’s playing a character who comes out as gay. A mortal lock!

Best Actor is between Clooney and Pitt. I don’t think any of the other nominees have a chance but we’ll see.

Best Actress is between Streep and Williams. Maybe the voters are tired of Streep and will go with Williams.

As for the rest..... who knows?

I’m rooting for “Hugo.” I’m surprised Ben Kingsley wasn’t nominated for at least Best Supporting Actor.

I got Moneyball in my cue @ home maybe I’ll watch it with some buddies this weekend. Midnight in Paris is @ Redbox think I’ll go check that out as well. Usually I don’t give two craps about the oscars I just got to see what got nominated.

I'm banking on Clooney and Pitt splitting the nominally talented actor vote and Oldman emerging triumphant.

Only four of the awards go to actors. The Help doesn’t even lead in the amount of nominations.

HUGO was good....

MONEYBALL was good, although the book is much much better.

THE TREE OF LIFE was visually great, and pretty ambitious. Yes it had Sean Penn in it, but I don't think he had a word of dialogue other than some voice-over.

As for the rest haven't seen any of them.

Bridesmaids got snubbed for Best Picture. Figures. Few expected it to get a nod. Shame, really. Hollywood's job is to entertain us and the films that do this should get recognized. Bridesmaids was one of the biggest surprise hits of the year.

If this is truly the best Hollywood had to offer in 2011, then Hollywood is finished.

Melissa McCarthy, Bridesmaids as Best Supporting Actress??? Seriously? She was funny, as was the picture, but no more so than Tom Hanks in Bachelor Party, or Sean Penn in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and I don't think the Academy put them up for awards for those roles.

And the script gets a nod too? Bridesmaids is a funny movie, but Oscar-worthy? Is it just because of the female angle? I don’t get it.

I hope War Horse wins best movie. The two Actress’ from the Help should win those two awards. The guy from Living Loudly not close (or whatever it is called) should win supporting and Brad Pitt should win best actor in Moneyball. Four great wholesome movies. I hope that horrible actor George Clooney in that boring “The Decendents” does not win. I thought that movie was the worst I have seen and I have seen my share of stinkers.

I’ve seen one of these movies: Bridesmaids - I liked. I saw the European version of “The girl with the dragon tattoo,” which I’m sure was better than a lazy ass Hollywood remake.

Hollywood has no imagination anymore. Being Human, Shameless, The Office, Men Behaving Badly, multiple movies - all been there done that in Europe.....lazy slugs with no imagination.

I have seen most of the films nominated.

I have no idea why Bridesmaids and The Descendants are even on the list. Bridesmaids wasn’t that good. The Descendants wasn’t too bad and nothing special.

Best Picture: The Artist. Second choice- Hugo.
Best Director: Martin Scorsese, Hugo.
Best Actor: Gary Oldman, Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy.
Best Actress: Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady. Second Choice- Michelle Williams, My Week with Marilyn.

Actually, I’d consider the poster of this thread to be the one looking to be noticed posting an article about Hollyweird on a conservative/political forum.

You wanna read about whats going on in Hollywood? Fine, read TMZ!
