Oscars

This year’s Oscar nominees that came out this morning gave me a mixed reaction. Most of them didn’t surprise me, but I also was’t really enthused by them. On a sad note: I was sad to see that Ryan Gosling was not nominated for anything and that “Harry Potter” couldn’t get a best picture nod. Anyway, below are the nine best picture nominees with how many other nominations they got.The numbers may surprise you.

  1. Hugo: 11
  2. The Artist: 10
  3.  War Horse: 6
  4. The Descendants: 5
  5. Moneyball: 5
  6. The Help: 4
  7. Midnigh in Paris: 4
  8. The Tree of Life: 3
  9. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close: 2

 

1.Hugo: The mistake I made. Clearly, I should’ve seen it. It just didn’t look that appealing at the time. Apparently the Academy feels differently.

This is not the end the end of Oscar talk, but I thought this would be a good breakdown of the top nine movies. Not in the top nine movies, but nominated include “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, “Tinker Tailer Solider Spy” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2”.
