Now that the nominees have been given a time to settle in... and we've been able to catch those few final 2011 pictures that we didn't have a chance to see until now two months into 2012... I'd like to take a moment and discuss the baffling "For Your Consideration" contenders who somehow didn't make the cut.
Michael Fassbender - Best Actor
Ryan Gosling - Best Actor
Tom Hardy - Best Supporting Actor
Between the three actors I have just listed, I'm hoping to see a new era in the "Best Actor Race". Like the old days of Pacino, DeNiro, and Hoffman... or Dean and Brando... I think we're in for more than a few treats in the coming years.
Brian Cox - Best Supporting Actor
Carey Mulligan -Best Supporting Actress
Shame - Best Picture, Best Director
Drive - Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography
Warrior - Best Picture
Winnie the Pooh - Best Animated Feature
Ralph Fiennes - Best Director
here. It's too bad some superior work get pushed to the side... but I guess some people in the industry don't think it's all that important to actually go out and see new movies.
That's all I've got right now. But as I finish off those last few films (I'm down to 5 or 6 I think) I may have some more to say on the subject. I am still excited for this years Oscars, but I would be more excited if any of these listed were in contention.
