Oscar Nominations Are Out!

This morning the Oscar nominations were announced. Here are my thoughts on who will and who was snubbed!

Actor in a Leading Role:
    * Javier Bardem in “Biutiful”
    * Jeff Bridges in “True Grit”
    * Jesse Eisenberg in “The Social Network”
    * Colin Firth in “The King's Speech”
    * James Franco in “127 Hours”
WTF?! That isn't the film I would nominate James Franco for and what about Mark Wahlberg?! I say this one goes to Colin Firth.

Actor in a Supporting Role:
    * Christian Bale in “The Fighter”
    * John Hawkes in “Winter's Bone”
    * Jeremy Renner in “The Town”
    * Mark Ruffalo in “The Kids Are All Right”
    * Geoffrey Rush in “The King's Speech”
John Hawkes? I didn't hear good reviews about "Winter's Bone" so I'm surprised. Christian Bale won the Globes for his Supporting role (so why isn't Mark nominated?!) so I'm guessing he gets the Oscar as well. He goes through amazing transformations for his roles.

Actress in a Leading Role:
    * Annette Bening in “The Kids Are All Right”
    * Nicole Kidman in “Rabbit Hole”
    * Jennifer Lawrence in “Winter's Bone”
    * Natalie Portman in “Black Swan”
    * Michelle Williams in “Blue Valentine”
I say give the Oscar to Natalie Portman! She was AMAZING in "Black Swan." She also went through a dark transformation for this role.

Actress in a Supporting Role:
    * Amy Adams in “The Fighter”
    * Helena Bonham Carter in “The King's Speech”
    * Melissa Leo in “The Fighter”
    * Hailee Steinfeld in “True Grit”
    * Jacki Weaver in “Animal Kingdom”
Since Melissa Leo won the Globes, I say this goes to HBC! And can she wear something fabulous? I don't think this is a very strong category though.

Best Picture:
    * “Black Swan”
    * “The Fighter”
    * “Inception”
    * “The Kids Are All Right”
    * “The King's Speech”
    * “127 Hours”
    * “The Social Network”
    * “Toy Story 3”
    * “True Grit”
    * “Winter's Bone"
I'm not a fan of 10 nominees for this category. "Social Network" swept at the Globes so perhaps it will go for the Oscar. I love Jesse Eisenberg so I'm bias in wanting him to win some award for this role!

So Michelle Williams gets nominated for "Blue Valentine" but Ryan Gosling doesn't. Jesse Eisenberg gets nominated but no supporting nominations his " Social Network" costars? Looking at these noms, 2010 seems like a bad year for movies.

What are your Oscar predictions? Who got snubbed?
