Jennifer Lawrence? Absolutely not.


Haven't really seen any of these, so I can't add much more input than that, other than I don't understand how "Django Unchained" can even be nominated. It hasn't even been out for a month yet. :wtf:

I'm bummed that Jonny Greenwood didn't get nominated for Original Score (for The Master). I wonder if it was due to an "ineligible technicality" (as was the case with his score for There Will Be Blood), or if he was eligible and they just didn't think it was worthy of nomination.

And widespread release of Zero Dark Thirty doesn't happen until tomorrow. Only had a limited release (of 5 theaters?) last month.



edit: Also I find it interesting that The Master wasn't nominated for Best Film (wtf, there's 9???), considering it has nominations for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress.
