    I never seen Les Mis and I didn't know that Anne Hathaway's part was supporting. I had no idea she was working so hard for a supporting actress nomination. By all the articles it seemed like Anne was going for Best Actress. Jennifer Lawrence, I read one article from and I haven't seen her movie either, and she's up for a Best Actress in a lead. (I don't watch recent movies so much, if you can't tell)

    I am pleased for Bradley Cooper's Oscar nomination, he doesn't have a shot at winning though however getting nominated is huge for his career. Also, pleased for Robert DeNiro & Jackie Weaver too, they were terrific as Pat's parents. I loved the entire cast in SLP. I haven't seen many of the movies besides SLP although I really want to see Django Unchained & The Impossible. x

    Anne Hathaway's push for a nod was shameful to me. I was kinda hoping she wouldn't get nominated. I've been a long time fan of Phoenix and would love to see him win. My biggest excitement will be the Bond franchise tribute. I'm hoping Sean Connery will make an appearance.

    meh, it's the Oscars, I expect them to be this way. I liked Lincoln, but I wanted to see it for the historical aspects of it and I get giddy about that time period. And yes, there were plenty of mistakes, but again...meh. I would have been infinitely happier with without any of the Spielberg hokiness, but it is what it is. The performances were much better than the movie. I see what Olivia was saying about how Tarantino is just as well off without an Oscar nod. If I were him and got a nomination, I'd start to wonder what I did wrong. Some kind of rebirth within the Academy would be nice, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

    I don't have a problem with Anne Hathaway being nominated, she' s a great actress. I also don't have a problem with her push for a nomination, it's just that it was kind of sad and transparent to watch.

    One of the best actress nominees is 9.

    I was hoping Anne wouldn't get nominated too , she tried to hard and it just reeked of desperation and made me like her even less .

    Meh, Anne didn't do anything out of the ordinary. Campaigning for an Oscar is the rule, rather than the exception. Movies are a business, and the Oscar crap is all a part of that business. The ad in the trades, lavish receptions, the courting of the academy members, that's just all part of the business of movies. The real heavy campaigning will start now that noms have been given.

    Exactly and the movie companies push just as hard. I hope Anne wins. It was a great performance.

    Hey, Ann shaved her damn head and cried ugly! On any given year, that's worth AT LEAST a nomination.

    I think the all-time record for groveling for an Oscar vote is still Margaret Avery -- by a country mile -- when she was up for "The Color Purple". See actual ad below:

    Sandra Bullock's campaign for Blind Side was infinitely worse and she WON.

    One of the reasons I loved Christopher Guest's "For Your Consideration" mockumentary so much.

    I absolutely agree, they all do it.

    As far as Anne goes, her behavior seemed so unsubtle it pained me, I was kind of embarrassed for her, to the point I felt like saying, "geez tone it down a little, we already know you want it!" I guess being obvious is better than when actors lie and say they don't want it, and get secretly backstabby about it. I never buy the "who me?" act from anyone else either, not even Jennifer Lawrence who I do like a lot. Anyway, I wouldn't begrudge her the Oscar, and I have a feeling she rightly deserves the nomination as much or more as the other actresses.
