Notes:

-WOW! DGA only lined up with Oscar 2/5! Ben Affleck and Kathryn Bigelow missed on director! I don’t think I’ve ever been this shocked by an Academy snub before. I thought those two were stone cold LOCKS. Goes to show that you can never truly be certain how the Academy is going to vote, especially when a pair of films as emotionally resonant as Amour and Beasts of the Southern Wild get their hooks in Academy voters.

-Emmanuelle Riva becomes the oldest best actress nominee in history, while nine year-old Quvenzhane Wallis is the youngest.

-Lincoln leads with twelve nominations, and the fact that it hit every major category (Director, Editing, Screenplay, acting) means that, barring a Kings Speech or Crash-like surge, the race is more or less over. But the Academy has been known to surprise before. Driving Miss Daisy won Best Picture in 1989 without a directing nomination, the last film to have done so. So there’s still hope for Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, Django Unchained, and even Les Miserables. Just not much. Although Life of Pi and Silver Linings Playbook still have a real shot.

-Academy Award nominee Adele!

-This doesn’t have much to do with anything, but I kind of hated how the nominations were announced. One huge video screen each showing one nominee at a time = hand cramps from having to type it all out in one manic rush. Also, save the lame presenter jokes for the ceremony, Seth. Just give us the quick-and-dirty. Emma can stay though. That said, the presenter banter gave me an opportunity to catch up on the typing, having lagged behind as a result of the shock from the Academy actually having the good taste to nominate Amour.

-Bradley Cooper on The Today Show: “I just want to say, Ben Affleck was robbed.”

@Mikhail XO I am absolutely FLOORED that Affleck and Bigelow missed out on director.

But I'm not upset, believe it or not, since I loved Amour and Beasts of the Southern Wild. Still, I don't think I've ever been this shocked by a snub before.

I think I'm going with Lincoln for Best Picture, for now. Twelve nominations, plus it hit all the major categories.
