    Oscars 2013: Snubs and Surprises | Photo Gallery - Yahoo! Movies

    A Yahoo article on the "snubs" and surprises of the Oscar Nominations.

    SNUB: Samuel L. Jackson
    SNUB: "The Dark Knight Rises"
    SNUB: Leonardo DiCaprio

    SURPRISE: "Life of Pi" (I actually might go see this now)

    Discuss! And maybe toss in who you think might win!

    Re: 2013 Oscar Nominees have been announced

    Leo, Samuel L Jackson and Dark Knight Rises are MAJOR snubs. As is Ben Affleck from Argo (from what I hear ... haven't seen that one yet).

    This is a pretty interesting list of movies, I actually have a desire to see all of them except Amour (although I admittedly don't know much about it).

    Interesting fun-fact: Silver Linings Playbook is the first movie to receive acting nominations in each of the 4 categories (Best Actor/Actress - Supporting Actor/Actress) since Reds in 1981.

    Ben was on that Yahoo list to. And I hear that Kevin Smith isn't to happy about Ben being snubbed.
    One of his tweets:
    So... ARGO directed itself?! For what it's worth, @BenAffleck, this ol' movie-maker still thinks you're one of the Best Directors of 2012...

    Now's my favorite time of year at the theaters. Looks like I'll be busy catching up on best picture contenders.

    I hope Bane gets around to breaking everyone's spine who did not vote for The Dark Knight Rises...

    Nah, okay, so I don't. But it is a shame that TDKR wasn't acknowledged for anything.

    I don't mean to stir the waters or just be a nuisance, but I can't see why Dark Knight Rises SHOULD have been given the opportunity at Best picture. I enjoyed the movie, but mass appeal, plot holes, and sensationalism do not necessarily a good movie make.

    Its a perfectly legitimate opinion.

    My beef is not that it didn't get best picture but it got nominated for nothing....

    Out of sheer curiosity and the interest of discussion, what would you have it nominated for?

    If a film like Crash can win an oscar, The Dark Knight Rises should have a chance at being nominated for best picture.

    Even Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close was nominated last year, and reviews on that film were not that great.

    Edit: Oh, and I forgot to mention Avatar being nominated for best picture. C'mon now, AVATAR?! lol.

    Re: 2013 Oscar Nominees have been announced

    Well, I can check one category off ... Best Animated Movie.

    I'd rank them as follows:
    Frankenweenie - Oscar Pick for Best Animated Feature
    Brave - Really strong, enjoyed it much more than I thought I would
    ParaNorman - My dark horse, this could win Best Animated Feature
    Wreck It Ralph - I didn't enjoy this as much as I thought I would, too much hype maybe? I'm sure on repeated viewings on Blu Ray I'll learn to like it.
    Pirates - I thought it was an absolute bore of a movie

    As for Best Picture, I have 5 of the 9 down (Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, Django Unchained, Les Miserables, Beats of the Southern Wild).

    Argo is my pick for Best Picture so far.
