83rd Annual Academy Award Nominations

Just in: Nominations for this year’s Oscar nominations. And my accuracy rate comes in at:82%, down 6% from last year. Mind you, I did forget to include ten nominees for best pic. All 9 of my picks were correct though. Didn’t see Mila Kunis not getting nomed, as well the True Grit love for screenwriting, directing and actor for Bridges. Also didn’t see the John Hawkes or Michelle Williams love, although they were my alternates. Javier Bardem was a great example of star power influence, with a few famous actors having member screenings to enchant votes.

Anywho, here are the nominees:
