Oscar Nominations

Yesterday was the RAZZIES,  the Golden Raspberry, nominations, but today we have the Oscar nominations, which some would argue are less important, to the world of film, than the RAZZIES.  The Oscars has many categories, but the most important are; best picture, best director, best actor, best actress and best visual effects.

Best Picture
The Kings Speech
The Social Network
Toy Story 3
Inception
True Grit
Black Swan
127 Hours
The Fighter
The Kids Are All Right
Winters Bone

Considering that Toy Story 3 technically shouldn’t even be in this category, because there is a separate category for animated films, I’d say it definitely has a chance of winning.  Although, personally, I would prefer to see Inception get the award.  Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Best Director
Tom Hooper – The Kings Speech
David Fincher – The Social Network
Joel and Ethan Coen – True Grit
Darren Aronofsky – Black Swan
David O. Russell – The Fighter

Disappointing to see that Christopher Nolan did not get nominated, he’s such a great director.  For this category my money is on either David Fincher or Darren Aronofsky.

Best Actor
Colin Firth – The Kings Speech
Jesse Eisenberg – The Social Network
Javier Bardem – Biutiful
Jeff Bridges – True Grit
James Franco – 127 Hours

Colin Firth will probably win, but I’m hoping for Eisenberg.  By doing The Social Network he broke out of being typecast and I love when that happens.  Come on Jack Black break away do something that requires more range.

 Best Actress
Annette Bening – The Kids Are All Right
Nicole Kidman – Rabbit Hole
Jennifer Lawrence – Winters Bone
Natalie Portman – Black Swan
Michelle Williams – Blue Valentine

Portman has this in the bag.  Nothing against the other nominees, I’m sure they all did great and it’s an achievement to be nominated, but the girl broke bones to make Black Swan, that’s commitment and it shows.

 Although we now know who the nominees are, we won’t know the winners until the actual ceremony which will be on February 27th, the day after the RAZZIES.  Who do you think should win?  Let me know by leaving a comment and voting below.
