So happy for the movie The Artist!
Honestly, I didn't LOVE it. I think it's a good movie but since it is a French movie we'll be rooting for it 200% … 100% from me and 100% from Alek 😉 I mean, when was the last time a French movie got 10 nominations at the Oscars!? Plus I do LOVE Jean Dujardin and I was so happy for his Golden Globe. As for the rest of the nominations …
Martin Scorsese's Hugo … I think it was beautiful to look at, but when was Paris ugly to look at!? I found the movie to be average and I could not stand the young actor. But I get why people enjoyed it.
Michael Fassbender got no love for showing his peen … what a shame!
Biggest questionmark. Where is Ryan Gosling and his toothpick for Drive!?
The Oscar is such a boring ceremony to endure so if you don't nominate a great actor like Ryan Gosling who had an amazing year (Drive, The Ides of March …) why would you niminate George Clooney and his snooze fest drama The Descendants, seriously!?
But let's go back to the positive thinking, I am happy for The Tree of Life (one of my top movies of 2011) and wish The Artist all the best for next month's ceremony! Check out the full list of nominations here.
