  • John M. says:

    what's so hard about getting a complete list?

  • So... it is okay for Skyfall to use music cues in their score from the entire franchise, but a few years ago Johnny Greenwood was robbed for There Will Be Blood because he just so happened to feature a pre-existing song? Besides just feeling like Greenwood (and a lot of interesting scores) were robbed, that just annoyed me, speaking I don't feel like anyone is even talking about that Skyfall score like they are, even Beasts of the Southern Wild, which I am surprise didn't get a score nomination just because it seemed to get heaps of praise in everything else.

  • jeff says:

    I would like to see Jaoquin win!!!...Jennifer Lawerance,Sally Field & Tommy Lee Jones!!!!

  • Al says:

    How in the world are Affleck for Argo & Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty not nominated for Best Director? That is insane. All credibility is shot for this category as it is now obvious who will win! (Hint Hint: Somewhere in this galaxy ET is jumping for joy!)

  • Linda Rose says:

    I am shocked that Hohn Hawkes is not nominated for best actor.
    Silver Linings Playbook was a nothing film
