  1. ah, if you ask me, the awards are getting more and more boring and there is less and less justice about them. They often nominate actors who can't really act, films which are shallow, while leaving out some truly stunning thespians and talents :(

  2. I think The Social network would win for overall.. :O I think Tangled will win for best animated film :D

    hahah..cant say anything though, hv to wait & see.. :)

  3. I hope Tangled will win in its category, and I reckon The Social Network, Black Swan and King's Speech will get most of the awards.

  4. @DEZMOND Yeah it's a little when I see Depp getting nominated for The Tourist. But well, it's the one season that instills the great buzz to get all film lovers together to debate and discuss! Aha. I like that.

    @JEMSEN Yeah it's early to say for now BUT The Social Network is looking at the awards with a real chance of winning. It's the hottest favourite now.

    @Nebular Seems like there's quite a few supporting Tangled, I'm going to catch it soon =S Oh yes, I agree with you on those three, have you watched all 3?

  5. I haven’t seen The Tourist but reviews are mixed to negative, and some how got three major noms. True Grit has got nothing but universal praise and didn’t get a single nod. My guess is that cause it’s a remake and a western, the foreign press automatically dismisses it.

  6. @Jaccstev I agree with you and also Dezmond who has also pointed it out earlier. The HFPA's preference is very involved in their nominations, somehow they don't merit exclusively by performance but partly by appeal.

    The Cohen brothers have always been undermined but they are consistently producing interesting works these years.
