The Oscars 2013

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:

Best Actor:

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

Silver Linings Playbook

Best Director

Congratulations to all the nominees in all the categories, and we’ll all eagerly await February! 😀
