    Your Sister's Sister only got 1 nom - for Rosemarie in SUPPORTING! I'm sorry, but she is LEAD! I'm happy 4 her but Rosemarie deserves a LEAD nomination, and i think both Mark & Emily deserve supporting noms too :'(

    Was hoping to see more nominations for Your Sister's Sister. Thought it also at least deserved Supporting Actor and Screenplay. Very happy to see the nominees for Seven Psychopaths. Silver Linings Playbook is the best film of the year and will probably win a lot of these awards. I hope Bradley Cooper will also get an Oscar nomination. Actress is a hard decision. I think I love Lawrence, Winstead, and Wallis all equally. I guess I need to see Keep the Lights On.

    loool the best film of the year the master is not getting a nominee

  • YEMIKUAPUR | November 27, 2012 8:32 PM

    The Master should be nominated and PTA should be nominated for Best Director. Tom Hooper and his broken nose can sit this one out!

  • Oliver Lyttelton | November 27, 2012 2:12 PM

    The Master's too expensive for qualification.

  • Kiko | November 27, 2012 1:55 PMReply

    Why no Master? Isn't it "indie" if Moonrise Kingdom is? I mean it's even more independently funded than some films nominated...

  • KIKO | November 27, 2012 2:24 PM

    Oh, I didn't know that "economy of means" part. Though it states 20m as the limit and yes, Silver Linings was a bit more.

  • froz | November 27, 2012 2:19 PM

    i didnt know that thx oliver

  • cory everett | November 27, 2012 2:11 PM

    Budget cutoff is supposedly $20m according to guidelines, (though Silver Linings Playbook does go over that).
