    I agree with the common opinion that the biggest mistake is Chris Nolan snubbed for best director.

    I'm surprised Andrew Garfield wasn't nominated for Supporting Actor. I didn't think he'd win, but definitely thought he'd get a nomination.

    I'll really be disappointed if The Social Network wins Best Picture.

    I wasn't really concerned with who was nominated for the acting categories...because if they get it right, Firth, Portman, Bale, and Leo will be walking away with those awards regardless.

    All I have to say is The Social Network BETTER NOT win Best Picture. It's good, yes, but nowhere near as good as The King's Speech or Inception. Period. I don't care if Facebook is a "popular trend" right now, that doesn't make Social Network the best film.

    Nolan got snubbed for Best Director, again. What does this man have to do to get an Oscar?

    Yes he really did get snubbed for Best Director, but he can still win an Oscar with the screenplay, even though I don't think he will win.

    I'm rooting for Jesse Eisenberg, a home town family acquaintance.

    Re: 83rd Annual Academy Awards

    Sadly I don't get to the movies enough so the Academy Awards are more of a netflix preview for me rather than a contest were I am pulling for a favorite.

    That said, the best movie I have seen in the last year was easily Inception and it is unfortunate that Nolan did not get a best director nod.
