The 2011 OSCAR nominations are out! And although there are really no surprises in who has garnered nominations – most well deserved, there are a few snubs – particularly one – noteworthy. But more gripping on that later.
Here are our picks from those chosen for potential honors this year which will be televised on February 27th:
Best Actor nominees: James Franco, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeff Bridges, Colin Firth and Javier Bardem.
Best Actress nominees: Annette Bening (”The Kids Are All Right”), Michelle Williams (”Blue Valentine”), Nicole Kidman (”Rabbit
Hole), Jennifer Lawrence (”Winter’s Bone”), and Natalie Portman (”Black Swan”).
Best Supporting Actress nominees include Amy Adams (”The Fighter”), Helena Bonham Carter (”The King’s Speech”), Melissa Leo (”The Fighter”), Hailee Steinfeld (”True Grit”) and Jacki Weaver (”Animal Kingdom).
Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale (”The Fighter”), John Hawkes (”Winter’s Bone”), Mark Ruffalo (”The Kids Are All Right”), Geoffrey Rush (”The King’s Speech”) and Jeremy Renner (”The Town”).
The Best Picture include: “Black Swan,” “The Fighter,” “Inception,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “The King’s Speech,” “127 Hours,” [but this will likely win:] “The Social Network,” “Toy Story 3,” “True Grit,” and “Winter’s Bone.”
BEST DIRECTOR noms: Darren Aronofsky, David O. Russell, Tom Hooper, David Fincher, Joel & Ethan Coen.
Now back to our gripes!
What is up with overlooking Mila Kunis? She was just as thrilling in Black Swan as Portman – if not more so. That omission is just plain RUDE! And what about Mark Wahlberg in The Fighter? He is the top biller dammit!
It’s horrible when politics takes over what should be solely based on performance. You know why Portman was nominated – we needn’t supply you with a cause…
