    A very nice mix of things here…

      agreed

  • Dennis Arthur

    Love that Brie Larson is gaining momentum. I would wish for her to be nominated for an oscar but that’s not going to happen. But I’m glad she’s getting recognition.

      I wouldn’t count her out just yet….Surprises do happen nomination morning..

  • Dennis Arthur

    Also, David O. Russell instead of Steve McQueen? Lot of question marks on that one…

    somewhere Lee Daniels is realizing that his film wasn’t as great as he thought it was.
    Granted he might get some Golden Globe love, but I’m so glad most of the Critics’ Awards have excluded the film.

  • Matthew Woods

    Tucci for Catching Fire? REALLY?? Love Tucci but…

  • Genadijus Lesiuk

    Leo entering to the race for Best Actor verey strongly and can take that spot from one of the veterans or from Tom Hanks…

  • Anthony Moseley

    Surprised to see a Dern and Blanchett snubbed. I’m sure it won’t hurt their Oscar chances, but still….

  • Robert MacFarlane

    They’re totally trolling us with the Tucci nod. For some reason, I’m okay with this.
