Re: 2012 Academy Award Nominations
It's a shame they didn't put Deathly Hallows on there as a lot of folks anticipated a Best Picture nomination in honor of the series (but there's still a chance of a special Oscar).
The BP list is interesting this year because it's really a two horse race - Hugo vs. The Artist. Which also means 3-D vs. Silent Movies. That alone makes this worth following. It would have been nice to say I'd seen both, but I wasn't able to find a 2-D theatre playing Hugo and The Artist to my knowledge either never played here at all or if it did it only played for a week. I'm assuming they'll be fast-tracking the Blu-rays for both so I'll be able to see them soon enough.
