Boo. No Avengers or DKR for best picture
Spielberg's director award is waiting for him, maybe. Skyfall deserves this. Snow White does not.

There were enough major names in the best director race that you figured a couple of them were going to be snubbed, but the consensus was that Spielberg/Affleck/Bigelow were the three locks in the category. To have TWO of those so-called locks get omitted is just stunning.

I'd say it clears the way for Lincoln to win Best Picture and it's still got to be the favourite, yet you wonder if Life Of Pi/Silver Linings Playbook/Amour are now possible dark horses given how much support they seem to have across the board in the nominations.

Unfortunate that John Hawkes didn't get nominated for his tremendous performance in The Sessions.

Apparently, the commercials for Zero Dark Thirty aren't what they seem. The movie looked to me to be a run of the mill Raw-Raw USA capitalize on a current event and make a quick buck war movie, but I have heard nothing but good things about it and have gone from being totally uninterested in it to being intrigued enough to see it.

I don't like the Tarantino snub, but it doesn't totally shock me because of the subject matter and content. I am however surprised by the Affleck snub. I expected a good movie out of Tarantino, but saw a great movie. I wasn't sure what I'd get out of Affleck, but he took a tough subject and made it really compelling and suspenseful to watch.

The best movies I saw this year were Django, Argo and Lincoln. I'm glad to see them all represented in some way, but I do need to see more of these.

I'm putting together a statistics thing right now, but I want to point out that Riva and Wallis are, respectively, the oldest and youngest actresses ever to be nominated for Best Lead Actress. Riva is 85; Wallis is 9.

They mentioned that during the nominations broadcast.

I don't know how Christoph is in the supporting category when he dominated Django, but having him not go up against Daniel Day Lewis increases bid chances of winning.

Affleck not getting recognized for Argo is a slap in the face. I can see snubbing QT, because as great as he is his movies don't fit nicely in the voters minds.

Also surprised Moonlight Kingdom didn't get the tenth best picture nod.

That list of acting stats is nuts. I didn't realize that so many of the nominees were previously nominees (and mostly winners) before. It's got to be weird that only four of 20 nominees are first-timers.

It's also kinda surprising that it's De Niro's first nomination in 21 years. (At least until you think about most of the movies he's made in the last 21 years, I guess.)

I had the same reaction.

I thought it was interesting that Christoph Waltz and Helen Hunt were undefeated in the Oscars, but then I saw Sally Field! Two wins, and no other nominations until now.

As I was compiling it and got to Sally Field, I actually grimaced a little bit, thinking of all the typing I'd no doubt have to do. I was as surprised as you were that it's been only three nominations thus far for her.

Another one who blew my mind was Alan Arkin. First nomination: 1966. First win: 2006.

One of my fellow posters on The Straight Dope Message Board, where I also posted the list (Dopers, we call ourselves) pointed out that DDR also got nominated for Gangs of New York; the list has been edited to correct the omission.

No fewer than five films and no more than ten films can be nominated.

My understanding is that it is based on how many nominations each film gets. There is a certain minimum (percentage I think) that a film has to get to be included in the nominees. If only four films reach the minimum percentage than they include the film with the most nominations that didn't meet the threshold as the 5th nominee.

In this case, my guess would be only 9 films reached the threshold.

(I could be totally wrong btw, but that is my recollection. I tried to Google an explanation and couldn't find a quick confirmation.)

After seeing Lincoln, it deserves to win everything. Daniel and Tommy Lee are amazing.

I hated it, mainly because, even with the alien plot (which I didn't care for but was willing to accept if it was done well- it wasn't), I could see a good Indiana Jones movie just beneath the surface trying to get out.
