The King's Speech leads with 13 nominations, but to me, the big news is Christopher Nolan got shafted for a Best Director nod for Inception in favor of The Coen Brothers for True Grit.

What is the Academy's problem with Nolan? The Dark Knight got shafted for the big awards two years ago. Inception is nominated for Best Picture, but that's because there's a field of 10 nominees. And the reason there's 10 nominees for Best Picture instead of five is because of the uproar over The Dark Knight getting shafted for a Best Picture nomination two years ago.

Otherwise, the list is very similar to the Golden Globes, with the very credible exemption of movies like The Tourist.

Nolan got screwed bigtime, but I'd have bumped Hooper or David O. Russell to make way for him.

I haven't seen The Social Network (although it's high up there on my to-watch list), so maybe my thoughts on this subject aren't that relevant, BUT: isn't it crazy that for the rest of his life/career, Jesse Eisenberg will be known as Academy Award nominee Jesse Eisenberg? Good for him though.

I saw John tweet that Nolan got screwed out of a Best Director nom. I then went to my local CBS news site (newyork.cbslocal.com) and saw


    Joining Fincher among best-director picks are Darren Aronofsky for “Black Swan”; Joel and Ethan Coen for “True Grit”; Tom Hooper for “The King’s Speech”; Christopher Nolan for “Inception”; and David O. Russell for “The Fighter.”

I was going to tell John that he didn't know how to read. He would've told me that I didn't know how to count. :-)

If Inception wins for Screenplay, then I'd call it a victory.

It's a hell of a graduation from his old role of "guy you get when Michael Cera says no".

(Oh, and as great as Inception was - and it was - True Grit is probably the best movie of 2010 [or, at least, the best movie of 2010 that's not Scott Pilgrim vs The World and people actually saw] so I have no problem with The Coens getting another well-deserved nomination over Christopher Nolan. And I've seen all of the others nominated in that category except The Fighter - which I've heard nothing but great things about and is the next movie I'm buying a ticket to - and they all absolutely deserve a Best Director nomination too. Don't get me wrong - Christopher Nolan is working on becoming my favorite working director, but I understand him not quite making it this year. Hell, if there wasn't ten nominations for Best Picture, they'd have never nominated a sci-fi movie that came out in the summer either, deserved or not.)

Not sure what the rules are on documentaries so maybe they aren't eligibile, but if they are I am shocked none of the ESPN 30 for 30 movies were nominated as every one I saw was pretty damn good. Again, since they were not released in theaters, but on television they may not be eligible.

Exactly - not only do they have to be theatrical releases, I think there's some by-law that says they can't even be SHOWN on television before the awards (I remember some kind of complication with the Academy Awards preventing Michael Moore from showing Fahrenheit 9/11 on TV before the 2004 election - but that might have just been the excuse he used to save face because I don't see how equal time laws would have allowed that. I thought there was a thread about it, but I can't find it. 'Course the Politics forum in 2004 is a black hole of crazy vitrol so I'm afraid to look too closely.)

That's exactly why they would not be eligible. An eligible documentary has to have a 7-day theatrical run in LA and NYC and can't air on TV until 60 days after that run is complete.

Nolan getting snubbed (again) puts a really sour taste in my mouth. This guy might be the best director of the last decade, and he can't even eke out a nomination? Let's hope Nolan at least can take the screenplay award.

I'm loving the John Hawkes nomination. That guy was so good in Winter's Bone that he almost managed to steal the movie from the (also very deserving) Jennifer Lawrence.

Not sure why/how Annette Bening was nominated and Julianne Moore wasn't. Either nominate them both or nominate neither, since they were equal performances in TKAAR

I remember some people saying that Javier Bardem would be a one-hit wonder after his Oscar a few years ago and that he wouldn't even see a nomination again. Glad to see he got nominated again. He has no chance of winning, but it's nice to see him getting nominated.

No way Toy Story 3 wins, but it's nice to see it nominated.

The King's Speech will deserve everything it gets. Just a fantastic film.

A number of the episodes had screenings (The U in Miami, the Len Bias one in DC) but never a theatrical run.

That's a weird thing to say about someone who had already been nominated for an Oscar prior to No Country.



It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.

    Here is the part where I JV Starfuck Christopher Nolan. . . If you have read any of my fanboy ranting in the past it will be very familiar.

    Otherwise, the list is very similar to the Golden Globes, with the very credible exemption of movies like The Tourist. (notice I took a shot at the tourist to throw you off the JV Starfucking scent but you know the score)
