The 2012 Oscar Nomination are out. Some highlights and interesting bits:
- There were 11 nominations for Hugo (more technical noms) and 10 for The Artist (more for acting noms). Both are up for Best Picture and Director.
- Warhorse and Moneyball took 6 nominations each, while The Decsendents and The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo took 5 nominations each.
- Pixar does NOT have a movie up for Animation Feature Film this year while DreamWorks has been nominated for two: Kung Fu Panda 2 and Puss in Boots.
- The Muppets are likely a shoo-in for Original Song with “Man or Muppet.”
- The producers for The Tree of Life are “to be determined.” Are they in hiding someplace? They SHOULD be.
The carnage all happens on Sunday, February 26th, 2012 on ABC (and then we get on with our lives).
