Here Are Your 2013 Academy Award Nominees!

"Beasts Of The Southern Wild"
This film is a MUST SEE. Read More »

The nominees for the Academy Awards were announced this morning and I thought they were all sorts of WTF. While there were some awesome surprises (Quvenzhané Wallis is the youngest nominee ever for “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and there was a lot of love shown for the foreign language film “Amour”), there were many snubs that left me scratching my head. For starters, Kathryn Bigelow (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Ben Affleck (“Argo”) and Quentin Tarantino (“Django Unchained”) were all snubbed in the Best Director category, despite being considered shoe-ins. Hugh Jackman and Bradley Cooper landed Best Actor nominations but John Hawkes, who was beyond brilliant in “The Sessions,” was overlooked. At least my beloved Joaquin Phoenix was nominated for “The Master.” I’m sure he’s surly about it.

And, I mean, where were the nominations for “Magic Mike”?! I kid. Sort of. Other observations: the Academy clearly has a major boner for “Silver Linings Playbook,” “The Master” received a lot of recognition in the acting categories but won’t win anything, and no matter what, Anne Hathaway is walking away with Best Supporting Actress, as much as I wish Amy Adams’ handjob had a shot. Check out the list of nominees for the acting, directing and picture categories after the jump, and the full list of nominees at the link. [Oscars]
