2012 Oscar Nominations
When it gets closer to the actual award ceremony, I will do my 3rd Annual Chrisfilm Awards (1st Annual found here 2nd Annual found here). But for now I want to briefly (and I mean very briefly) give my thoughts on this year’s nominations:
Congrats to The Tree of Life for getting a nomination here! I was really sure this would get overlooked but I’m glad it didn’t because I haven’t seen any of the others. Should make for a fun 3rd Annual Chrisfilm Awards since I have a completely different list than the Academy.
Michelle Williams for My Week with Marilyn is an obvious choice but I’m still glad to see it. She’s the best actress working today. And though I’m not surprised, the Tilda Swinton snub is annoying (though I haven’t seen We Need to Talk About Kevin yet, so I guess I should reserve judgement).
Best Supporting Actor:
Albert Brooks was snubbed for his performance in Drive (which only received a pity nod in sound editing; nice work Academy).
Best Supporting Actress:
Don’t know much about these nominations
The last of the The Tree of Life nods. Can it pull off the win? I honestly think it might. *fingers crossed*
