Everybody knows this is the year of The Artist, but The Academy are in the business of show & this is a line-up to create doubt from certainty. Marty, Woody and Mad Terence in the director's list, Brad & George breathing down Jean Whatisname's stiff-collared neck; Chris Plummer against the equally old Max Von S as supporting actor....................a very interesting year.

Quick word about Fassbender; very good actor, but 100 minutes of silent lustful mouldering followed by a good self-loathing weep at the dock, does not an Oscar winner make; if you want to see an excellent study in sex addiction, look at the brilliant turn of Greg Kinnear in Paul Schrader's 'Auto Focus'.

Yet I bet you are up in arms about Ryan Gosling not being in there?

DISGUSTED!! >:( NO Fassbender??!! Feel like crying, and not nominating him because he's too young (to win) is the stupidest most arbitrary (possible) reason for not nominating someone EVER! :o I'm actually quite depressed now :'(

NO Tintin in animation when they've nominated Godawful Puss in Boots, Kung Fu Panda 2 and A Cat in Paris - ANYONE heard of that?? Are the Academy really that desparate to appease Brad and Angelina???!

It's not shocking, unfortunately.

In accordance with Academy rules, Senna wouldn't be eligible for nomination as it didn't contain any new material. All of it was already filmed and re-used.

Which is a shame.

The lack of Senna on the list for best documentary is shocking.

Good to see Nick Nolte has been nominated for Warrior. Thought he played the part really well and i'm a little disappointed Warrior wasn't nominated for anything else particularly for Tom Hardy's performance.

Pleased and surprised with this year's list. I'm amazed that The Tree of Life has been nominated for Best Picture. Why wasn't Malick in the Best Director category? Also didn't expect to see Hugo get so many nominations, however, after Scorsese's Golden Globes win, it was inevitable really. Nice that Rooney Mara has a nod for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, her performance as Lisbeth Salander was excellent.

I doubt he'll win, but it's very good that Gary Oldman is in the Best Actor category. He'll at least get a BAFTA, his performance in Tinker Tailor is outstanding.

Couldnt care less about the oscars anymore.They have no crediblity anymore.Only worth watching the show to see some of the idiotic acceptance speeches.

I am glad to see Rooney Mara's nod after her brilliant performance in Dragon Tattoo, and Glad for Oldman too for his wonderful turn in Tinker Tailor, while, Clooney, Pitt, Plummer, Spencer we're pretty much no-brainers. But no Gosling for Ides or Drive. And no Albert Brookes for Drive. Drive was film of the year in my view, and there is no questioning that. Very disappointed. But nice to see Jonah Hill in there. But Tintin wins golden globe, but isn't even listed for best animated? Strange.

Just goes to show that the Oscars mean nothing anymore. They have completely lost the prestige that used to be associated with them because they're STILL too cowardly to move with the times. I thought it was bad enough when Forrest Gump won Best Picture against Shawshank AND Pulp Fiction, then they went and gave Crash one. It took them long enough to give Martin Scorsese one as well...
It's a shame the more controversial films are almost never nominated, with them preferring to stick with the reassuring familiarity of Meryl Streep for the 50 millionth time. I haven't seen either of these but I think Michael Fassbender should get an Oscar just for the trailer of Shame and where is Drive? (I'm a 16) I have seen Tinker Tailor though and thought it's a shame it didn't get a Best Picture nom, especially since I've heard that Midnight in Paris is borderline mediocre. Maybe they're just so desperate to kid themselves that Woody Allen is still as good as he used to be.

Dominic Cooper for Devil's Double and Michael Parks for Red State. They we're both very good films. They we're outstanding performances.

Maybe it was overlooked because it was a Christmas film, but it was the best-reviewed animated film of the year. It at least deserved a nomination.

Andy Serkis should've been nominated for his work on Rise of the Planet of the Apes too.

Regardless of how good the year has been in film, there are going to be people that are ticked off with certain nominations and no nominations for great work.

But I guess the academy can't include everything that people like because theres way too much!

. Some of these nominations have surprised me ( no Andy Serkis for one! and no best director for tomas alfredsson?!) but im so happy to see The excellent Gary Oldman FINALLY!!!! getting an oscar nod, about time!

Dont think he'll win it though, my moneys on George Clooney unfortunatly.
