Our four favorite surprises from today’s Oscar nominations

  • one The amazing silent film “The Artist” didn’t top the nomination list — “Hugo” had one more, despite the fact it was shut out of the acting categories.
  • two “The Tree of Life” must’ve confused the Academy: A strange message, “Nominees to be determined,” accompanies its Best Picture nomination.
  • three Maybe not a huge surprise, but Pixar’s “Cars 2” is the first Pixar flick that didn’t get a single nomination for an Oscar. Perhaps it’s because it sucked? Yeah, probably.
  • four And a surprise going the other way: Melissa McCarthy got an acting nomination for “Bridesmaids,” her breakout role. The question is, will she win? source

    No “Pariah” though. As you can imagine, there is Internet outrage.
  6. notexactly said: I was shocked by the nominations for Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, since that was a critically drubbed film.

  8. the-wolfbats said: It’ll be a nice surprise to see which Animated Film wins for best this year - having Pixar in the category each year didn’t make it suspenseful at all.
