2 commentaires:

  1. I find it frustrating when films which don't resonate with viewers and/or critics get nominated (Extremely Loud, Tree of Life, War Horse). Those films were widely released and failed to connect with audiences.

    Best Actress looks like the most competitive category. Adapted Screenplay is an interesting group which should have included The Help. I'd like to see Margin Call win for Original Screenplay. It was my favorite movie of 2011.
