The Nominees Are In! Mooks Take Over the 85th Academy Awards



The nominations for the 85th Annual Academy Awards were released this morning and (to no one’s surprise) an astounding 11 book adaptations were nominated for an Oscar this year.  Particularly impressive in the Best Picture division, 5 out of 9 nominees were book adaptations including “Argo,” “Les Miserables,” “The Silver Linings Playbook,” “Life of Pi,” and “Lincoln” which were also all nominated in a variety of other categories.  Predictably the biggest winners out of this bunch will be “Lincoln” and “The Silver Linings Playbook” which is the only mook of the bunch to receive The Big Five (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay.)

The Academy Awards will debut live on ABC Sunday, February 24th at 7PM EST hosted by Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone.  You can read the full list of nominees here.  Who do you predict will be the big winners?

  1. Well, on best picture, I really hope it will be either “Life of Pi”, “Les Miserables”, or “Django Unchained”. I have watched neither of them, but I will try to watch them in the next few weeks.
    For the best actor, I hope it will be Bradley Cooper, and the best actress I hope for Jessica Chastain. Somehow, the nominees for this year’s actresses are not so good I think. A lot of them I have never heard of :D
    For the actor in a supporting role, i hope for Christoph Waltz. He is a great. For the animated feature movie, I hope for Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie”.
    For directing I hope for Ang Lee, and the best cinematography will be hard I guess, so many good movies. Costumes will get Anna Karenina I think.
    For the music, I hope for John Williams (Lincoln) and for the original song i hope for adele.
    For the visual effects, it is also difficult, But it will either be “The hobbit”, “The Avengers”, or “Life of Pi”
    I am really excited!

    • Thanks for letting me know your predictions/hopes! I feel similarly to you in most ways, but I actually think the Best Actress category is quite intense this year as there are so many wonderful actresses!

  3. I loved Les Mis and definitely think that Anne Hathaway deserves the Supporting Actress nod, but for Best Actress I would have to go with Jennifer Lawrence. I hope to see more of the movies this weekend so I can decide my pick for Best Picture!
