Want Argo to win BP.

Affleck shoulda been up for director.

Um ... that's all I got.

Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence are both absolute babes.

Literally the only thought I have- does anyone else think Seth MacFarlane could easily be Chris Knight's son?

Just me? ok.

Lincoln was slow. I liked the fucked up love story between Bradley cooper and Jennifer Lawrence (and watching Jennifer Lawrence dance around in a low cut shirt was a nice bonus).

Beasts of the Southern Wild was my favorite movie of the year so I'm supporting all of its nominations tonight. It will have to be a miracle for it to happen, but hey!

Hard to argue with that, haha. Don't get me wrong, Lincoln had some great elements in general, and Day-Lewis is always superb, but overall it was a snoozer.

I don't know why Ben Affleck isn't in the best director category.

I'm a Tarantino fanboy so I want Django to win best picture even though its not his best movie.

I think the majority of films nominated for Best Picture are pretty average to bad. Liked ARGO and DJANGO. As I've been saying for a while, THE MASTER, MAGIC MIKE, and LOOPER should have been nominated over junk like LES MISERABLES, LIFE OF PI, and even LINCOLN.

Not sure why but I'm feeling Amour for best picture. Not my favorite of the bunch (certainly wouldn't watch it again) but it just struck me in a powerful way.

DDL seems like the popular choice for best actor but I haven't seen Lincoln, so no comment.

Hoping for Riva for best actress, Hathaway for supporting actress, and supporting actor is tough but I loved Christoph Waltz in Django.
