Yeah, well that's consensus for you. Kind of unavoidable, especially with a film that was inexplicably less widely seen, even in the arthouse world. Then again, I'll never understand the unbelievable praise for Winter's Bone in any circle, solid enough though it was.

It was solid, and wasn't the worst film nommed for Best Picture last year, but appearing on artsy critic's lists? Hell naw.

Lame. I can't believe all these accolades Melancholia is getting.

That entire wedding sequence (like 40% of the film) was practically worthless. Generic handheld camera work.

At least they gave direction to Malick.

If there's a better list of nominations this year, I have yet to see it:

'A Separation,' 'Mysteries of Lisbon' Top International Cinephile Society Nominations | Filmmakers, Film Industry, Film Festivals, Awards & Movie Reviews | Indiewire


Mysteries of Lisbon with NINE.

The Best Picture lineup alone just incredible:


PICTURE
• Certified Copy
• Drive
• Hugo
• Margaret
• Meek's Cutoff
• Melancholia
• Mysteries of Lisbon
• A Separation
• The Tree of Life
• Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
• Weekend

Of those, I still need to see Margaret (getting a week-long run here next week) and Weekend, which I've heard great things about.

If neither Rooney nor Lizzie are nominated tomorrow, I'm burning the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences headquarters building to the fucking ground.

I saw A Separation last week, very good.
Margaret is coming to OC this week, still waiting for Weekend.

I also think that is a very good list.
Most likely better than the one we will get tomorrow.

Uniformly disgusting nominations across the board outside of the occasional glimmer of hope from Malick, Woody, or Tinker Tailor. And I don't think Tree really has much of a chance in winning best picture, so I guess I'm only rooting for Rooney Mara as far as the actual awards. Then pretty much Hugo for everything else since it's kind of the only studio film this year worth two shits that's gotten nominated for anything, generally speaking. Also lol the foreign language category. Once again one worthwhile film among four others nobody has ever fucking heard of.

Actually, I take back one thing. Aside from The Artist the category for cinematography this year isn't actually too off base.
