TGIAS… or Thank God It’s Awards Season. I’m not going to deny it, I love awards season. And the highlight is The Oscars. The most prestigious and biased film awards ceremony. Today, was an important day though, as the nominations for the 85th Annual Academy Awards were released!
In a perfect world, I would’ve liked to see Mr. Bardem given a best supporting actor nod for his performance in Skyfall. Tarantino would have at least been nominated for Django, and Tom Hardy in Lawless was phenomenal, but he goes unchecked too. I was surprised to see Ben Affleck without a nom for best director, and Tom Hooper too, for Argo and Les Mis respectively. Other than that, I was expecting Argo, Silver Linings, Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty to get a fair few nods each.
Regardless of this, I will be glued to Twitter once February 24th rolls around to find out who does get the honour of a statuette.
So here are the big noms:
Bradley Cooper – Silver Linings Playbook
Daniel Day-Lewis – Lincoln
Hugh Jackman – Les Misérables
Joaquin Phoenix – The Master
Denzel Washington – Flight
Jessica Chastain – Zero Dark Thirty
Jennifer Lawrence – Silver Linings Playbook
Emmanuelle Riva – Amour
Quvenzhané Wallis – Beasts of the Southern Wild
Naomi Watts – The Impossible
Beasts of the Southern Wild
Life of Pi
Silver Linings Playbook
Zero Dark Thirty
Michael Haneke – Amour
Benh Zeitlin – Beasts of the Southern Wild
Ang Lee – Life of Pi
Steven Spielberg – Lincoln
David O. Russell – Silver Linings Playbook
Congratulations to all the nominees in all the categories, and we’ll all eagerly await February! 😀
