      You're a year too late complaining about the omission of 'The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans', you know it was released way back in 2009 in the states.

      To be honest, I can agree with you on all of those. The Town, Ryan Gosling, Nicolas Cage and Mark Wahlberg especially. I was genuinely p********f when I watched the nominations live yesterday and they weren't announced. The Academy are full of s**t.

      Yep... Garfield, Gosling and Wahlberg should definitely be nominated and Nolan should be collecting his Oscar next month...not to be even nominated his scandalous... Daft Punk should also be in with a shout. Would have loved to see them sitting with all of the Hollywood actors and actresses in their trademark helmets...to cool for the Academy

      I dont see the point of having a Best Picture win but not its director (or vice versa), What the film crew just played it by ear? Stupid. Ridley Scott was robbed.

      You mentioned Daft Punk for Original Score, but how on earth has TRON been overlooked on Visual Effects?!? Say what you like about the acting or the story, but the effects on TRON were pretty special. Compare that to the cardboard cutout 3D of the nominated Alice in Wonderland!

      There's a reason Noomi didn't get nominated. The movie was long, rambling, and frankly quite boring. Her performance was okay, but I don't see what all of the fuss is about. The fact that they chose not to nominate her shows that Hollywood isn't completely pretentious. Just 95% pretentious :-)

      It's a solid list, but there are a few things I want to comment on. First off, Best Supporting Actor. I would have LOVED to have seen Andrew Garfield nominated, hell I was pulling for him. If you look at all of the performances that were chosen over him, it's easy to determine that they're all just as deserving. I can understand people not knowing who John Hawkes is, but watch Winter's Bone, and you'll see that his performance is phenomenal and deserves some recognition. So I can't argue with the Academy over that one. As for Daft Punk, that score to me is the best all year. Unfortunately, my theory is that it's too modern/techno-y for the Academy, who are always looking for these traditional scores for the most part, which is where it at least makes me happy they acknowledged Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for The Social Network. As far as Best Actor, Gosling deserves to be there as well as Mark Wahlberg.. But I'm not going to be the one who argues against Javier Bardem for his wonderful performance in Biutiful. The movie may be long and it may be somewhat tedious to sit through, but Bardem's performance is brilliant and tragic. As far as Best Director goes, if Chris Nolan was snubbed, then no one else really matters. I loved True Grit, but Nolan should have been there over The Coen Brothers this time around. I also want to thank you for not putting Mila Kunis on this list. The Best Supporting Actress category is pretty much perfect in my opinion, yet everyone keeps arguing about her and saying she was snubbed. No. She wasn't. Putting Kunis ahead of any of those other actresses would have been outrageous.

      Haven't seen the Fighter yet (can't wait to though) but have heard a lot of great buzz about Mark Wahlberg's performance. Andrew Garfeld and Christopher Nolan not getting a nomination is ridiculous and The Town was one of the best films of the year with Ben Affleck delivering a film almost on a par with his impeccable Gone Baby Gone. The fact he didn't even get a look in is criminal.

      The reason that Christopher Nolan hasn't been nominated is simple, the five directors nominated did a better job with their films than he did. Even if he was nominated, he wouldn't stand a chance against Aronofsky, Fincher or the Coens, all of whom are vastly superior film makers, plus O'Russell and Hooper made better films than Inception. Nolan is a master of structure and makes interesting films but I find his direction to be rather functional and sterile, it seems the Academy feels the same. If anyone should be feeling snubbed for best director, it's Ben Affleck.

      I agree with everyone here, except for Daft Punk. The score for Tron: Legacy was pretty lackluster in comparison with their other work and the electronic brilliance that was The Social Network's score.

      Tangled was definitely snubbed of a best animated feature, in my opinion. The crew worked so hard to make the hair of rapunzel work and I think they did a brilliant job bringing that to life. The movie was charming and the story was really good. I thin they could've snuck Tangled in with the other three nominated animated features.
