2011 Oscar Noms!

Recommended Posts



There's no real bystander this year. Should be a close race for best picture. It'll either go to The King's Speech (which it should) or The Social Network... which it shouldn't.


Anyway, I'm rooting for The King's Speech, Inception, True Grit, Black Swan, and 127 Hours. All fantastic movies, all deserve awards.


I think James Franco definitley deserves best actor though.

I was glad to see James Franco nominated as best lead actor!

lets hope that the social network is not gonna win in every category again. that movie is good, but not that good.


I couldnt agree more! I soooo hope Franco gets it, he was brilliant in 127hrs!


And you're so right about The Social Network!

Same for Colin Firth!!!!


I hope they both win (even if I wouldn't mind a James Franco's victory...haven't seen the movie yet, have to wait the french release, I want to see it in theaters).

Sorry, but no. The King's Speech was nice and well-acted and uplifting and such, but fairly corny and not really very groundbreaking. (It definitely is good though!) It's gonna be between Inception and The Social Network, and The Social Network should win, but I'm thinking Inception is more Oscar-flavored than TSN.


I'm seriously seriously hoping TSN will win like everything. I'm in love with that movie.


btw, I haven't yet seen Black Swan, though I definitely intend to. Mostly cuz I'm not old enough to go with anyone really besides my dad and I hear that there's lots of masturbation and stuff in it which would just be awkward with family members, my dad especially, haha. Also, True Grit should win something, unsure what, though. Maybe best supporting actor or something? They'll almost certainly get best director. And if Hailee Steinfeld got Best Supporting Actress I would be really happy, because she did a genuinely good job.

Yeah he was, he did a really good job.


Also, I say this every year, but I'm really annoyed how in each category the nominees are basically "Inception, Black Swan, The King's Speech, The Social Network, Winter's Bone", etc. (Plus some of "The Fighter thrown in for shits and gigs" :P) I haven't seen all of them but I guess they're just the only actually good movies this year, but that makes me sad cuz they have to just nominate one movie for like everything each year...
