Oscar Nominations are Here!!!


Yay! It's Oscar season again! So thrilled that 'True Grit' got 10 nominations including best picture-which in my opinion it deserves. Not sure what was wrong wit the HFPA that they ignored it completely, but am so happy today that it is getting the recognition it deserves. Yes the Coen Brothers seem to always have films up, but they are brilliant.

I am still confused about Black Swan-but to each his own, I just wasn't a fan. I know all over Twitter today people are outraged by Chris Nolan getting snubbed, but I don't know. I think Inception was great, but not best picture great. That's just me. The Social Network was a great film, even if not entirely true to Zuck's real life to multi-billionaire status-it is a solid film.

My prediction is that Social Network and True Grit will dominate-but it is anyone's game at this point!
