Honestly, I have no clue why Silver Linings Playbook has so many nominations...it's confusing...I'll have to check it out, I guess, but it didn't look like Oscar material from the previews or anything I had read about it beforehand.

Also surprised at the absolute snub of Cloud Atlas.  I still haven't seen it, but I have listened to the score and there is no way that it shouldn't have at least been nominated for Best Original Score.

Not so surprisingly, Leo is once again snubbed...I expect he wouldn't have been if Gatsby had been released in December, as originally planned, so he'll at least be in the running next year, and hopefully gets it...even if someone else is phenomenal, he's been great so many times and deserves some recognition...

Pleasantly surprised Skyfall got a nomination for cinematography. 

Surprised Bigelow and Tarantino aren't in the running for Director.

I'd definitely pick Christopher Waltz for Best Supporting Actor. That acting was amazing.

Leo was pretty phenomenal in Django, too, though. I guess it's just the nature of the role that kept him out.

It is weird not to see Cloud Atlas in here. Score yes, but costume design also is where I'd expect to see it.

People have said really good things about Silver Linings Playbook, so I can see that.
I wonder if Bigelow was snubbed because of the political controversy in her film about the torture and whatnot.

Samuel L. Jackson in Django Unchained portrayed the most devious villain I've seen in a long time. I felt that deserved a nod. I loved Waltz's character though; it was hard not too.

I'd say:

Best Picture: Lincoln or Zero Dark Thirty
Best Actor: Daniel Day Lewis
Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz
Animated Feature Film: Wreck-It Ralph
Best Original Song: Skyfall
Best Original Screenplay: Moonrise Kingdom or Zero Dark Thirty

Dunno about the rest.

After seeing Zero Dark Thirty, I can see Jessica Chastain as having a good chance at winning. She was excellent in that.

For anyone who's wondering why Wreck-It Ralph wasn't nominated, it's probably because it was only just released in the UK yesterday. That doesn't explain why The Pirates! got nominated for an Oscar but not a BAFTA, though... Also, apparently animated films don't warrant a full presentation and were reserved for the "other awards" round-up. ¬_¬

Emmanuelle Riva is a surprise.  I guess I hope Jennifer Lawrence still gets the Oscar, though.

Hurray for Christoph.

You should've seen him accepting it. He seemed rather shaky, bless him.
