Good morning 2013 Oscar host Seth MacFarlane and Gangster Squad’s Emma Stone!
It’s 550 am Thursday 10th Jan 2013 here in Los Angeles and yes, Flick Chick is actually awake ( thanks to jetlag!) to bring you… FILM FANS, the full list of noms! EXCITEMENT!
Beasts Of The Southern Wild
Life Of Pi
Silver Linings Playbook
Zero Dark Thirty
Flick Chick is SUPER HAPPY with this list.. except for Les Miz (go read my review!)
ESPECIALLY delighted that they recognised Amour, Silver Linings and Beasts of the Southern Wild ( which I got to watch on my Singapore Airlines flight from Singapore to L.A. and cried my eyes out! It’s soooooo good!)
Snubs: No Skyfall??? No Dark Knight Rises??? Where’s the love for Christopher Nolan?
Best supporting actor
Alan Arkin – Argo
Robert De Niro – Silver Linings Playbook
Tommy Lee Jones – Lincoln
Christoph Waltz – Django Unchained
Philip Seymour Hoffman – The Master
Flick Chick thinks they got this category perfectly right! PERFECT LIST!
Best supporting actress
Amy Adams – The Master
Sally Field – Lincoln
Anne Hathaway – Les Miserables
Helen Hunt – The Sessions
Jacki Weaver – Silver Linings Playbook
Flick Chick thinks this one is for Anne Hathaway to lose! She is possibly THE ONLY THING I LIKED in Les Miz. She was excellent. Though many agree that Helen Hunt was fantastic in The Sessions
Jessica Chastain – Zero Dark Thirty
Jennifer Lawrence – Silver Linings Playbook
Emmanuelle Riva – Amour
Quvenzhane Wallis – Beasts of the Southern Wild
Naomi Watts – The Impossible
Flick Chick loves how Emmanuelle Riva is the oldest Best Actress nominee in Oscar history at 85 years old and Quvenzhane Wallis is the youngest at 9 years. Both made me cry buckets.. and are BEYOND excellent! Jennifer Lawrence is no slouch either…love her!
Daniel Day Lewis – Lincoln
Bradley Cooper – Silver Linings Playbook
Hugh Jackman – Les Miserables
Joaquin Phoenix – The Master
Denzel Washington – Flight
Jackman?? Really? Seriously? Flick Chick says, “DANIEL DAY LEWIS FOR THE WIN!!” Like Hathaway.. it’s his to lose.
Michael Haneke – Amour
Ang Lee – Life of Pi
David O Russell – Silver Linings Playbook
Steven Spielberg – Lincoln
Benh Zeitlin – Beasts of the Southern Wild
This is another ALMOST perfect list! WELL DONE ACADEMY! You got it right.. except maybe you should have included BEN AFFLECK? Or CHRISTOPHER NOLAN? Snub alert!
But can I just say? I’m soooooo glad that Tom Hooper didn’t get nominated! Didn’t deserve the win for The King’s Speech… and totally killed Les Miz for me.
The nominations are selected by a ballot of 6,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Nominations for this year’s awards are being announced two weeks earlier than usual.The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said the move would “provide members and the public a longer period of time to see the nominated films”.
The OSCARS will take place at the Dolby Theatre on 24 February 2013!
Can you wait, film fans? I can’t!
Let me hear your thoughts on the nominees!!!
Your Flick Chick
