Silver Linings Playbook is overrated.

Enjoyed it more than Lincoln.
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 more bothered by PT Anderson's snub.

Day Lewis was unreal, but yeah -- over all ... meh.
I also don't get the Tommy Lee Jones or Sally Fields nominations. Jones was, well, Jones in a wig. And Fields was just there, nothing special.

Man, I loved everything about Looper, even more after watching it a second time.

Hathaway aside, Les Mis is a terrible movie.

This too and Tarantino. I don't think they are ever going to give him one.
So used to it, totally forgot he was snubbed again, haha. His direction was easily better than all the nominees too.

He's 3 for 3 directing, imo, great movies.

And looks like next up is another Dennis Lehane novel (one of my favorite novelists) ... so my expectations are skyhigh.
You hear that WB wanted him for Justice League and to play Batman in it? Have no desire to see a JL movie, but the idea of him directing had to me intrigued. Not sure I'd like him as Batman, though.

I found it to be a challenging and unsettling movie that left me not knowing what to think. But that's just me, I can also see why people would view it as Oscar bait as well.
That first "therapy" scene alone is basically better than every movie nominated.

Yeah, it coming up against Forrest Gump that year was rough.
Every time I see or hear about Forrest Gump I just think about every snub ever. Saving Private Ryan. Shawshank Redemption. David Fincher. Social Network. Ugh.

Weird idea but they should have the Oscars be for movies 5 years prior. Let them sink in, age a little bit, etc. So this year would be for movies in 2008 and so forth.

Social Network will be the movie from that year that we all remember IMO.
Freaking Hooper and King's Speech. My ass.

Tarantino fans, do you think Django will get any other award besides supporting actor? (I'm hoping for more at least)
I wish but highly doubt it.

Same here. I listen to the soundtrack all the time too.

DiCaprio should've been nominated over freaking DeNiro or Arkin. Still pissed about that one.

disagree, DeNiro was great.
That role and performance did absolutely nothing for me. I enjoyed it and it wasn't bad by any means, but certainly not worthy of an Oscar nomination over some other people. Have the same gripe with Tommy Lee Jones and Lincoln.
