  1. 1

    Wierd ones to me.

    – No Bigelow for director.
    – Les Mis for best picture. It was fine, but no where near the quality of some of the snubbed films.
    – Salley Field for Lincoln? Looking back there isn’t actually a ton of memorable supporting performances this year. I’d personally put in place performances from unlikely Oscar choices like Looper or Cabin in the Woods over Field in this film though.
    – Moonrise Kingdom snubbed everywhere.
    – The Master snubbed everywhere as well.
    – Leonardo DiCaprio for Django. Get rid of Arkin or Tommy Lee Jones. Preferably Arkin.
