That was to be expected though, and at least audiences liked that movie, unlike this (and to some degree, The Reader) which was all campaigning and Oscar bullshit.

Yeah, not to say that Gump was completely deserving, or even a great film, but it was definitely beloved, and it had some cultural impact and some memorable characters/moments.

There are certainly worse Best Picture nominees than Forrest Gump.

Though, to be fair, it actually won, which adds fuel to the fire.

Powerhour, A Serious Man and The Blind Side only had 1 nom in addition to BP. Having a list that can go to 10 will allow that kind of thing to happen.

Grand Hotel actually won BP with no other nominations.

Because Hugo got a few tech nome that The Artist didn't, it was able to cancel out the latter's acting noms, and add another to lead the field in total noms.

Conceivably we have the possibility of Hugo winning more Oscars than the actual BP winner. I think it's a likely winner in Art Direction and Costumes, possibly editing, one or both sound categories, and even special effects. And then there's Marty who might win his second in the same BP/BD split fashion that Oliver Stone and Spielberg did.

Even if The Artist takes Direction over Marty, it's an underdog in both acting categories and screenplay. I think score is a good bet, cinematography and editing are questionable.

The Artist winning Cinematography would be hilarious (ly misguided). Same for editing really.

they have the People's Choice Awards and MTV Awards for beloved or popular movies

I just have very little respect for blatant pandering to sentimentality.

9 Best pics noms is kind of a funny number (for some people)

was Dragon or Melancholia, denied their spot? *





* 5% threshold required

No noms at all for Melancholia is ridiculous.

A shame when superior efforts in black and white have been nominated in the last decade but lost (The Man Who Wasn't There, Good Night And Good Luck).

The "smaller" or mellower frontrunner tends not to win Editing (Million Dollar Baby, The King's Speech). They gave it to The Social Network last year, so a win for Hugo or Dragon Tattoo is more likely IMO. Yes, The hurt Locker beat Avatar in this category, but the former had a lot of tense scenes which would give it an upper hand, and it was still a hybrid action movie. The Artist has some fun montages, but nothing else that really attracts attention. Crash would seem like an exception but it had a bunch of different storylines which some idiots mistake for equalling great editing.

A few months back I mentioned that a friend of mine won best new documentary at the Palm Springs short film festival. He just found out this week that he got nominated for a Genie Award too... I realize the Genies are to the Oscars what the Butt-Fuck, Idaho Highschool Football Championship is to the Superbowl, but cool for him none the less

I'll remind you (sadly) that Gangs of New York was up for 10 and took home none.

My money would be on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for editing, but will they really give it to the same team two years in a row?

Well right, but there was a huge backlash that year because of Weinstein and because of that phony, pro-Scorsese letter Robert Wise signed his name to that appeared in Variety.

I'm guessing without that controversy, it would have at least won for Art Direction, Costumes, Cinematography, Editing, Day-Lewis, and probably Scorsese. Despite the late surge of The Pianist.

More importantly, Hugo doesn't seem to be as divisive. There's no way it's not winning anything.

If Gustavo Santolalla can (undeservingly) win two years in a row, then yeah. I don't even know if the editors names are even printed on the ballot, and regardless people aren't even paying attention to that.

The only other one I could see winning Editing is Hugo. If The Artist wins that or Art Direction, a major, major sweep is happening.
