    Could someone explain to me what qualifies an actor for lead and or supporting consideration?
    I would have guessed to see Hathaway in the lead category? o_O

    I didn't see the movie, but I've heard she's only in it for 15 minutes.

    I think the Academy decides who goes where. I know for the Emmy's the actors decide but I think it's different here.

    I remember when Denzel won for Training Day, he was in the lead category even though Ethan Hawke had more screentime than he did. So in short, it's pretty arbitrary?

    I'd like to see at least 3.

    I see Kathryn Bigelow has not been nominated for Best Director, which seems odd considering all the early plaudits that film got.

    For a solid month I think I heard it was the greatest film of the year and incredible, etc. Then the pro-torture stories started coming out and now that's pretty much all I hear about the film.

    Personally, I'm not sure I could stomach the movie, although it is intriguing and I did like The Hurt Locker.

    Of the Best Picture nominees I've seen Django Unchained, Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty. Of them I enjoyed ZDT the best.

    I've never even heard of Amour or Beasts of the Southern Wild.

    Having seen it I can honestly say that for me it didn't bother me one bit. The waterboarding scene didn't last very long, maybe 20-30 seconds at the most. As long as you tell yourself it's just a movie you'll be fine.

    Hope Django wins Best Picture.

    Surprised at Amour pick..WTF

    Only because it's Haneke of course. Seems to have convinced people he's art darling but only if they saw his older and better work...

    I thought it was presented as truth? In that the torture lead directly to Osama's death?

    I see a Belgian short was nominated:


    Fun thing is that it shares the same lead as the Belgian movie nominated in the foreign film category last year: Matthias Schoenaerts.

    Best motion picture of the year

    I have seen the following movies :


    Argo
    Beasts of the Southern Wild
    Les Misérables
    Silver Linings Playbook

    and I want to see the following movies:

    Lincoln
    Zero Dark Thirty


    This has been a very good year for movies. My two favorites are Argo and Silver Linings Playbook. Highly recommends from screen play, acting,

    Performance by an actor in a leading role
    Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook
    Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln
    Hugh Jackman in Les Misérables
    Joaquin Phoenix in The Master
    Denzel Washington in Flight


    Tough, tough choice. Loved both Bradley Cooper and Hugh Jackman. Need to see Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln. I give the nod to Hugh.

    Performance by an actress in a leading role
    Jessica Chastain in Zero Dark Thirty
    Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook
    Emmanuelle Riva in Amour
    Quvenzhané Wallis in Beasts of the Southern Wild
    Naomi Watts in The Impossible


    Jennifer Lawerance is worthy of the award. However, I haven't seen the others except for Quvenhane. I don't like giving awards to child actors.

    Performance by an actor in a supporting role
    Alan Arkin in Argo
    Robert De Niro in Silver Linings Playbook
    Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Master
    Tommy Lee Jones in Lincoln
    Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained


    Alan Arkin gets my vote, but need to see Tomy Lee Jones.

    I don't get how Christoph Waltz gets nominated over Samuel Jackson or Leonardo Dicaprio in the same movie. I also heard that Sally Field was pretty bad in Lincoln but I haven't seen it. And it seems Helen Hunt got nominated because of showing full frontal a couple of time because I don't think it was that great of a performance. Pretty weak field this year.

    And shouldn't they just mail Daniel Day Lewis his award now?
    You know he doesn't want to show up.

    Forget about Django. If they didn't selection Quentin for a best director nod, they won't be giving Django the top pic award. I loved it but it will win nothing.

    Amour should not be eligible for both best picture and best foreign-language film. What's that all about?

    I'm horrified to say I might not even watch them this year. They look like a snoozefest.

    As Jitty pointed out to me just today, that's pretty much at the heart of the controversy. The fact that the screenplay could be read as a way to legitimize a controversial and unpopular means of intelligence gathering.

    No, it highlights how torture doesn't work well either.

    Gosh, 20 years ago I would have paid money to see this....:thumbsup:

    And yet, here we are in 2012, and I find this almost more compelling. Hunt's older than I am, which means she's pushing 50. Must take some level of courage to go frontal at that age...

    Edit: Here's the article Mark O'Brien wrote about his experiences that lead to The Sessions:
