The Oscar's season is back and this must be the most star packed event of the year. The contender for each category seems to be getting heavier and heavier over time.
Who will bring back the gold man home?
We have some really awesome movie in Oscar 2012 which happens to be a lot of Oscar snubs happening as each category only can fit in 5 or 6 nomination. I always have this assumption that Oscar will only take it serious, mid slow pace and not-so-blockbuster movie. In the Best picture category, I'm shock to see that "Hugo" (Okay, Hugo got nominated for a few category as well.) is one of the nominees this year. "Bridesmaids" and "Drive" were not nominated, which considered as one of the biggest snubs. As for "Bridesmaids", I'm not really impressed by it, I mean it's a okay movie. But, I didn't expect it to be nominated. But I think "Shame" deserves a nomination.
Best Actor category, both Leonardo Dicarpio and Michael Fassbender dropped out of the list. Kinda big snubs for me but the category can't fit this much. However, we found some "justice" after years and years having this legend winning the top biggest snubs title in almost all awards but specifically referring to the Oscar, yes it's the man, Gary Oldman has finally get a nomination! And we have the best buddy Brad Pitt and George Clooney nominated as well. Seems like a tough competition in this category but personally, Gary Oldman should have the little gold man.
Gary Oldman with Jean Dujardin.
Best actress category will surely disappoint a bit without having Tilda Swinton in it. "Harry Potter" seems to give some surprise as well with no nomination in Best picture which it happened to be one of the biggest film last year. The fans is trying to have Alan Rickman got into the best supporting actor list but nay, the panel is not fond with Snape, I guess.
Some add on :
- "Hugo", the most nominated film with 11 nominations.
- No pixar this time. So WEIRD~~~
- My prediction will be Descendants (Best picture), Gary Oldman (Best actor!!!), Might be the Artist (Best original screenplay, this film is a big hit but not my type of movie.), Harry Potter (Visual Effect), Kung Fu Panda 2 (Best animated feature)....
And below here is the list of the nominees for Oscar 2012. Can't wait for the red carpet.
