    I'm really disappointed that Blackfish didn't make the documentary cut. Its message needs to keep spreading. The Act of Killing is just an unbelievable, unprecedented film though, I hope it wins.

    Yeah, as much as I loved it, it was not a "summer" movie. Still, I thought that it had enough buzz to carry through the rest of the year.

    I have to agree about Blackfish. I hope everyone sees it and stops supporting SeaWorld! Immediately!

    I get annoyed with all the talk about snubs. I mean, there are only five spots and that's just the way it works. Of course there will be people who don't get nominations. It's a non-story to me. The only exception was last year and Ben Affleck. That just seemed very deliberate for some reason and I understand the controversy there.

    Brie Larson - Short Term 12

    I had read a whole lot about her performance and people really expected her to be a surprising but very deserving nomination.

    And People Magazine is busy blowing smoke up Ms. Winfrey's ass . . .

    The Biggest Name Missing from Oscar Nomination Morning: Oprah!

    By Nate Jones

    01/16/2014 at 10:00 AM EST


    Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker in The Butler
    Anne Marie FOX/The Weinstein Company

    For the entire run-up to this year's Oscar nominations, Oprah Winfrey seemed a lock for a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role in Lee Daniels' The Butler. Playing the wife of Forest Whitaker's eponymous butler, Winfrey looked to be everything the Academy dreamed of in a nominee: a very famous person playing a serious role in a historical drama that audiences loved. She had already scored both SAG and BAFTA nominations, signposts pointing towards the TV host receiving her first Oscar nomination in 28 years.

    And yet, when the nominations were announced Thursday morning, Oprah's name was nowhere to be found. Neither was anyone else's from The Butler – the film was shut out entirely.

    In a year full of surprises, Winfrey's absence in the nominations comes as the biggest shock, for a few reasons.

    • The film seemed to have everything going for it. The Butler is a decades-spanning travelogue through all the milestones of America's Civil Rights history. It's the kind of feel-good middlebrow entertainment that the Academy has always loved. (Remember The Help?) And, to top it off, it was a surprise box-office smash.

    • Oprah's role was perfect Oscar bait. In The Butler, Oprah plays Gloria Gaines, the long-suffering wife of a good man who makes mistakes. According to our math, 99% of all Best Supporting Actress slates have had a character who falls into this category.

    • And she's great in it. Gloria Gaines is a big, showy role, and Oprah gives it her all. "Oprah's performance was the opposite of subtle," wrote Stephanie Zacharek at Slate. "I just cannot forget that moment when, seething with resentment … she rises from the couple's marital bed, goes to the mirror, and – in a moment of feral femininity – meticulously applies a coat of lipstick."

    • She's come close to Oscar gold before. The Academy loves to reward its favorites, and Oprah is among them. She was nominated as Best Supporting Actress for The Color Purple (losing to Dianne Wiest of Hannah and Her Sisters) and received a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award just two years ago.

    • She's Oprah. Again, she's Oprah. Everyone loves her.

    Still, we aren't feeling too sorry for Ms. Winfrey. We're sure she'll find something in that $7 million palace in the sky to console her.

    I must quibble with the part about everyone loving her. Everyone most certainly does not.

    Oprah should just go ahead and buy the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and then give herself every award in every category.

    The Emma Thompson snub is the biggest surprise to me. Did Streep really need ANOTHER nom, at Emma's expense no less? And for a movie that wasn't all that well received? IDGAF about Redford's snub--I haven't seen the movie but I bet I could tell you everything you need to know about his perf: wooden and narcissistic.

    Leo DiCaprio has mastered playing Leo DiCaprio in every movie he's ever in.

    I'm surprised American Hustle has got so many noms. It's the only film I've seen of these (I'm poor and my friend paid for me to see AH), and I wasn't blown away. I love me some Bale as you all know, and the performances were definitely solid, but I don't think Oscar worthy. Though the Oscars are utter bullcrap anyway.
