The Social Network

It's no surprise to see The Social Network, The King's Speech,The Fighter and Black Swan getting some recognition, but you'll probably be shocked to see the likes of The Tourist and Alice in Wonderland getting multiple nominations.

In fact, almost the whole 'Best Picture: Comedy or Musical' category comes seems like some kind of elaborate joke...

      DiCaprio should definetley have nominations at least one of Inception or Shutter Island, as should Joseph Gordon-Levitt, if not Tom Hardy for Inception supporting role!

      Bold move giving the Coen's the shaft. P.S. Just because a movie doesn't come out in the fall doesn't mean you can't nominate it. Shutter Island is way better than 80 % of the nominees but just because it came out in the beginning of the year it won't get nominated for anything. What's the rationale?

      cant believe the comedy musical best picture category how awful is it!! Where's The Other guys or Kick a*s hell id even put The A-Team in than Burlesque. And definitely agree on Dicaprio, where's his nominations. I would love to see Inception my favourite of the year but i doubt it will win. And no love for The Town

      Obviously The Fighter with all its nominations must be pretty good... am looking forward to that one... agree with Inception, got to win best movie and Leo should have been up for Shutter Island... thought he was excellent in that... no Monsters at all is a shame..but will surely clean up at the British awards although looks like the Kings Speech will take a lot of awards everywhere... shame as I bet although critically acclaimed and am sure deservedly so... BORING!!
