The nominations have thrown a few curve-balls into what most expected would happen. No Best Supporting Actor nod for John Hawkes, no Director nod for Zero Dark Thirty‘s Kathryn Bigelow. But both  Quvenzhane Wallis, 9 + Emmanuelle Riva, 85 were nominated, making them the youngest and oldest nominees in Oscar history.

So, in the “sexy six” categories:

Best Picture

  1. Was hoping for Dred 3D to be in ‘best picture’ list because it was my favourite of 2012

  2. Ah well, seems like the Oscars snubbed so many this year, might as well throw Dredd 3D in there too! ;)
