Joel and Ethan Coen nominated as Best Director is a slight surprise.
Not at all disappointed that The Town was not annointed with either Best Picture or Best Screenplay nominations because it was a better than average crime film, nothing more. People seem to have lowered their standards for Ben Affleck because he's such a subpar actor that if he can write and direct a pretty good movie it must be great.
Right, so this post was written so immediately and without thinking that I didn't even realize Michelle Williams was nominated.
Glad to see Jacki Weaver get a nomination and glad Andrew Garfield did not get a supporting actor nod for The Social Network.
However, Jesse Eisenberg did make the cut which is a slight sham. No Robert Duvall is unfortunate.
The Spanish film También la lluvia did not get a nomination thankfully. Although I would have preferred it over the dreadfully pretentious bullshit of Dogtooth.
