  1. Holy cow!!!!
    TOM HANKS ain’t nominated for Captain Phillips.
    But Alsonso Cauron is perfect for Best director category.
    And of course Dicaprio too.

  2. These awards have credibility…! But they should be language neutral, means every language should be in main nomination list without any foreign language category…!

  3. Slavery-themed films seem to be the flavor at the Oscars, after the success of LINCOLN and DJANGO!
    If Steve McQueen wins the director’s statue, he will become the first Black person, albeit non-American, to win!
    And, if. “l2 years…….” gets the other 1 (best film), it will be “Slave” labor well rewarded for this newcomer on the Hollywood scene!
