    The Artist.

    We knew it'd win. It was orinal. It kissed Hollywood's arse. And... well, that's about all the susbtance it had outside of Dujardin's charisma.

    Without the dog in that movie, audiences would have fallen asleep- I'm certain.

    Never heard of it. I see Moneyball, Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill got nominated for best picture, actor and supporting actor, not that it wasn't a good movie and they didn't do a good job of acting, but Oscar worthy? Must be a pretty weak year then... and I thought 2010 was bad.

    Oh well, glad to see Nick Nolte get recognition for Warrior. Tom Hardy should have gotten one for Warrior as well if Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill got nominations.

    I think Jonah Hill got the "I always play myself in comedies, so when I finally get a drama role, I automatically get an Oscar nominee" treatment. Happened with Eddie Murphy in Dreamgirls. Look for Seth Rogen next year.

    I simply would not have the patience to sit through a silent movie... especially one that's 100 minutes long.

    The Artist meh. Original my arse. They were making silent movies a 100 years ago.

    Of those nominated Clooney should have won for the Descendants. Great script, great performance.

    Okay. I'm not a movie guy, so I haven't watched Moneyball. I did, however, read the book a few years ago.

    How in the heck did they turn an organization pouring over on base percentage and errors and overdrafting guys by several rounds to avoid paying bonuses into a mainstream movie?

    I'll never understand why people lend so much credence to the Oscars and Grammys
    It's the industry honchos, full of pomp and pretext congratulating themselves for a "job well done".. That's equivalent to The Titans awarding themselves a Championship trophy though they only went 8-8.

    The Grammys are the absolute worst.. The industry "chooses" who is gonna be popular for the next year, they ignore every other entity completely then award themselves after the fact.

    Completely rigged - top to bottom.

    I've become quite jaded to Hollywood as they are constantly patting themselves on the back (how many award shows..3-4?) while contributing nothing of substance to the society that made them famous.
