    Wow The Artist over Drive. Can this mean something in the Academy idol competition?

  • Demian Bichir should’ve been there instead of Pitt, I would’ve personally traded Streep for Liana Liberato in Trust (It’s a pity no one saw it), Viggo Mortensen and Keira Knightley should’ve been there for supporting actor and actress instead of Rickman and Chastain. Ashgar Farhadi should’ve been there for best director and original screenplay instead of The Artist in both categories. Help could’ve been replaced by The Ides of March or A Dangerous Method.

    But there’s a lot right about this list. Way more accurate than the other award ceremonies this year. Nice to see Fincher, Refn, Gosling, Woodley. Great choice for Cinematography, Score, Sound, Editing athough I believe Jeff Cronenweth for Dragon Tattoo deserved a spot over Harry Potter.

  • Joey Magidson

    Interesting choices…

    The wealth was really spread around this year, with only three films winning multiple awards. I was also not expecting The Artist to win here, I thought Drive had this in a walk. This community can always find ways to surprise you. And that Harry Potter win in visual effects over Rise of the Planet of the Apes is one more thing that makes me think that the Oscar for that film may not be as locked as it once was.

  • Holden

    Awesome winners. The only category I really have any qualms on is Ensemble. I think that Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy would have made a good winner, but other than that, I would have had most of the same nominees even.

    Very nice.

    To add to the fun, here’s what my ballot was:

    Best Picture: Drive
    Best Director: Nicolas Winding Refn
    Best Actor: Michael Fassbender
    Best Actress: Tilda Swinton
    Best Supporting Actor: Albert Brooks

    I realize Drive showed up on my ballot more than I initially wanted to, but it took the place of a lot of personal winners who were not nominated.

  • Joey Magidson

    Good to know!

  • GL

    Wow, what an amazing selection. The fact that Fassbender won. And we had a split between picture and director. Also Editing and Picture and even Ensemble. My favorite part though is that “The Artist” tied with “Benjamin Button” with the most nominations ever, but their outcome was so much different. Amazing!
