Fun trivia fact. Kenneth Branaugh is nominated for Best Supporting Actor, playing a Best Supporting Actor nominee, the first time that's ever happened.

I'm stinking up the joint thus far. Shoulda banked on Hugo.

My big beef about this years oscars is the two movies about the movie industry get the most nominations and awards. The jury is hugely biased, being 100% comprised of the movie industry.

I am not saying the movies were bad, but neither was good enough for best picture. Up Close and Extremely loud was a much better film. And the kid from Up Close delivered the best actor performance, but he didn't even get a nomination because he is not a know A-list star ;(

Ps. While I *loved* Jean Dujardin in the OSS 117 movies (if you haven't seen them, do it, they're hilarious) -- his performance in the Artist was merely good, nothing notable about it at all.

I got 10 right. That sucks.

@Mark Carey

Not only is it a big fat biased circle jerk, but it's boring.

Never heard of OSS 117... but will look into it.
