Lincoln got the most nominations. It was a great, historical biopic, but not the Best Picture of the Year.
- "Beasts of the Southern Wild" - it's next up in my Netflix queue, mostly because the 9-year-old girl (who was nominated for Best Actress!) is supposed to be amazing in it.
- "Silver Linings Playbook" - I've been pushing Mike to see this for weeks; we've GOT to see it this weekend. If there's time, with all the football.
- "Zero Dark Thirty" - winner winner chicken dinner
- "Lincoln" - what I said
- "Les Miserables" - really more about the acting than the film as a whole, but makes sense
- "Life of Pi" - I will never watch a movie about a kid stranded in an ocean with a tiger, I just won't.
- "Amour" - supposed to be good, but it's French. So, you know, no.
- "Django Unchained" - OF COURSE
- "Argo" - OF COURSE
In Best Director news, apparently Django Unchained, Argo, and Zero Dark Thirty - the three best movies I saw this year - directed themselves. Cool.
Other Nominations I'm Happy About
Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz, "Django Unchained"
Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway, "Les Miserables." But Sally Field, "Lincoln"??? No.
Best Actress: Jessica Chastain, "Zero Dark Thirty" and Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook" (no, I haven't seen the second one yet, but I love her so YAY)
