As a movie buff, I love to follow the Oscars each year.  This year’s nominations were announced and I’m overall happy with who made it.  It was great to see “Man Or Muppet” get nominated for Best Original Song.  I think my favorite movie this year was ‘The Descendants’ so it was nice to see some nominations for George Clooney and director Alexander Payne.  However, I think Shailene Woodley should have been nominated for Best Supporting Actress.  Here are the nominations, what was your favorite movie over the past year?


Nominees were announced by Jennifer Lawrence and Tom Sherak, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Martin Scorsese’s 3D ode to movies, Hugo, leads the field with 11 nominations with silent film The Artist following with 10. With a new voting procedure implemented and the nominees in the best picture category not revealed in alphabetical order, nine films were named, including War Horse, The Tree of Life and The Descendants.

Below are the nominees in the 24 motion picture categories:
