Lincoln gets 12 noms? It must have been MUCH better than it looked in the previews.

Some quick observations.

Django got Best Pic Nod but not director. Same for Argo. Foxx and Leo didn't get a nom but Christoph Waltz did.

All the Supporting Nominated actors have won before.

Since the Oscars has more noms I think they spread out the awards this year to make everybody happy.

I have not seen Silver Linings yet but this makes me want to see it more. I like David Russell's style and he got best director nom.

My early predictions:

Best Actor- Joquain Phoenix- he is due and will be rewarded.

Actress-Jessica Chastain

Sup Actor- totally stacked. I will say Hoffman because it was more layered but I think it goes to Deniro.

Sup Actress-also tough but a slight lean to Ann Hathaway.

Director- toss up between Russell and Anderson. Both have been close.

Picture- said this early on and will stick with it. Argo.

for some reason, when I picture lincoln, I don't picture him with a whiny, high pitched voice. That's just me, though.

Silver Linings caught me off guard. Guess I need to check it out. Kind of weird swing Bradley Cooper as an Oscar nominee too. Guess he'll take on more serious roles.

Cooper is a clasically trained actor actually. He has done a very good job moving up the lists.
