I figured Bardem was going to get the nom, but someone had to call me out about it in another thread

It's a tough call between Social Network and King's Speech in terms of who will take the top prize. IMO, Social Network is a better made, more in depth, and more entertaining movie. King's Speech has 3 excellent performances (especially Rush and Firth) and is a more traditional movie.

Glad Restrepo got a nom

Well, I hope Tron wins for Sound Editing. It's a travesty that it wasn't nominated for Score.

Why is Toy Story 3 nominated for Adapted Screenplay?

Because it's a sequel (the characters aren't original).

I'm guessing it has something to do with being based on characters that have been in prior films.

That doesn't make it an adaptation of anything.

"Adapted" is just a catch-all term for "not original".

Re: Oscar nominations for 2010 (Ceremony 2/27/2011)

Kind of a weak year in terms of performances and films.

Julianne Moore got the short end of the stick (meaning, she did a lot of heavy lifting in "TKAAR" and probably just missed out on a best supporting actress nomination. But that's the more competitive acting category, as I would be very surprised if Colin Firth, Natalie Portman, and Christian Bale did not win their categories.

The main contest will be between "The Social Network" and "The King's Speech" for best picture, though I really hope Fincher gets the Directing oscar (not sure if Aronofsky has a shot this year, but I can't really see Hooper taking prize).

I think Sorkin is a shoo-in for his adapted screenplay for "The Social Network", while the race is closer for original screenplay between "The King's Speech" and "The Kids are All Right".

I'll be curious to see if Cinematography goes to Matthew Labatique for "Black Swan", or if Pfister or Deakins walks away with the oscar.

Editing is a toss-up between "Black Swan" and "The Social Network". But "The King's Speech" could sneak in there.

While I think "Toy Story 3" gets best animated feature, "How to Train Your Dragon" was a better time at the movies for me.

I cleaned up my original post so it's easier to read.

Surprises: Winter's Bone in Best Picture, Javier Bardem, John Hawkes, Jeremy Renner, No Waiting for Superman doc nom, No Inception in Editing.

Super pissed off about: No Directing nomination for Christopher Nolan. WTF?

I was hoping Another Year would get more nominations.

Any speculation on what the best picture nominations would have been if there were still only 5?

Yeah... Too bad a disco score, with a smattering of traditional themes stealing frequently from John Carpenter/Alan Haworth, didn't get nominated.

Come on guys...

The Fighter

Unbelievable that Nolan and Inception's editing got screwed. Is there something going on between Nolan and the Academy?

The academy likes character pieces, which is something Nolan doesn't aim for.

Comparing say Being John Malkovich to Inception - BJM was about characters and then they get introduced to this weird portal, Inception was about setting up rules and playing the game.
