I disagree completely, I thought that Eisenberg's performance, undramatic and introverted as it was, had way more complexity to it than just looking sulky and was at the very centre of the film. The whole thing wouldn't have worked anywhere as well without him. Andrew Garfield was very good and yes, very likable and sympathetic (though I also thought that his character in some ways helped dig his own grave), but no way did he carry the film and frankly I didn't think he was better than the rest of the major supporting players.

I'm glad that The Kids Are Alright are getting noms, but not sure why Annette Bening was singled out by everyone instead of Julianne Moore.

Probably because her role is the more sympathetic one.

Yeah, I hate when an acclaimed and popular American film is actually like... good.

Not only that, but there are only four nominees instead of the usual five.

Dislike the film all you want, but don't blindly hate.

It's just that he plays that same roll in almost every other movie he's in to a degree.

And I agree, I would've rather Julianne Moore been nominated.

that is a big leap to hate, you are making.

I have said more than once, that I liked the film. I just don't think it is the best movie of the year. I do expect it to win best picture.

I've only seen him in Zombieland before, and while his character there was nerdy and awkward he was also nothing like Mark Zuckerberg.

Roger Dodger, he is good in that, an overlooked film.

I saw The King's Speech over the weekend and I enjoyed it, it surprised me that I liked it as much as I did. Colin Firth deserves it if he wins, and the acting chemistry he had with Rush was so good. Also Hailee Steinfeld for True Grit-well deserved, I thought she made that movie.

Kids Are All Right-blah, I don't get it. Didn't get the whole she-runs-off-with-the-guy thing and it just wasn't that good of a movie (or performances) for me. I think Hollywood just wants to congratulate itself for making a mainstream movie about a lesbian couple starring mainstream stars. Mark Ruffalo is a good enough actor, but honestly I don't get that nomination.

I'm really rooting for Melissa Leo and Bale and I just love that movie so much. I wouldn't have nominated Wahlberg, but I do think he suffers from the fact that his character is the laid back spoke in the wheel. I think for the good of the movie he had to play it low key and that's authentic to who Micky Ward really is.

I was going to say that by all accounts, Eisenberg portrayed Zuckerberg's personality, particularly in the early days of Facebook, quite accurately.

So you liked it, but you don't think it's worthy of nomination in any category?

Sounds like hate to me. Or hypocrisy. Or just bull-headedness.

Or maybe it's just totally possible to like a movie without thinking it worthy of Academy Award nominations?

TSN is the clear front runner, it has won more 'best' awards than any other film this year. Again, I expect it to win Best Picture and most likely Best Director.

I do not think that it should have not gotten any nominations, I just meant to imply that getting one less nomination, is not such an outrage.

The 10 Best Picture noms are better this year than last year.
District 9 and The Blindside seemed like filler.

If anyone cares, I think TSN is a better movie than Swan, !27 Hours, Winters Bone, and Toy Story 3, that belongs in animation category.
