Go True Grit!

Haven't seen it yet (Tomorrow), but still...

Went from zero Golden Globe noms to second-most Oscar noms. Clearly some people like westerns, and some people don't. ;)

The Coen Brothers response to True Grit's 10 noms: "Ten seems an awful lot. We don't want to take anybody else's."

Humble folk, the Coens.

the best film nominations are quite good this time around.

good to see Aussies Geoffrey Rush, Nicole Kidman (i've heard barely nothing of this film she's in!!!!) and Jackie Weaver all nominated.

It's hard to choose who i would like to see win. Many good people/films up for nominations


(and shouldn't this be in the movies section, rather than the tv section? thanks)

Ive now seen 5 of the nominated movies: (True Grit, Toy Story 3, Inception, Black Swan and The Social Network) out of all of them i think True Grit is the easy winner, closely followed by The Social Network and Black Swan. Black Swan was an amazing movie, Natalie Portman will easily win the oscar but i dont think the film itself will win. Toy Story 3 and Inception have no chance im sorry to say, despite both being good movies i doubt either will be named Best Picture.

I still need to see 127 Hours, The Kings Speech and The Kids are All Right, hopefully sometime this week, im told The Kings Speech is a great movie so im looking forward to seeing if it will change my opinion of True Grit deserving Best Picture.

Very boring and predictable results really. Would have LOVED to see some love for Winter's Bone, my favourite film of 2010, as opposed to the three or four films that seemed to take all the awards (Kings Speech/Social Network/Fighter/Inception). Inception took way too many technical awards too- cinematography definitely should have been True Grits one win for the evening. (instead it got ZERO from 10 noms..:shock: )

I'm happy Natalie won- although would have been even happier if Jennifer Lawrence stole it from under her- and that Inside Job won best Doco.
