A big day for -- Hollywood the Academy Award nominations are out and these are the films them that were most coveted.
On the list for best picture -- to -- us.
The best picture nominees for 2012.
He -- the southern wild silver linings playbook.
Zero dark thirty Lincoln -- is there -- life apply a more jango unchained and Argo.
How about Christopher John Farley Wall Street Journal which may not how you do take that tell you -- you out of the cinematic come in here.
What's not on that list is Kathryn Bigelow and zero dark thirty.
The first film ever made about the war on terror -- going nuts over the fact that she was not nominated there right now.
Plus there -- a lot of opinions about why she wasn't nominated a number one it's because the film did have a political content to it.
I mean we have senators.
Who are questioning -- betrayal of waterboarding.
And of torture in the film whether or not it was accurate or not whether -- not -- -- that resulted in.
Information whether or not it glorifies -- practice is -- politics may have played.
A Roland Burris well certainly people out there I think so the other reason that people simply giving out there for her not getting -- nomination Kathryn Bigelow.
Is this category is not necessarily welcoming towards women.
Only four women have been nominated she's the only woman to a and one of the couple hours ago with a great film called the Hurt Locker -- right now the category is all male yet again so that could have played a role -- -- a lot of theories toughest.
What Katherine -- again I don't know there's going to be a lot of debate about the store for them in all likelihood we'll talk about this in five nominations for that film but a lot of them frankly are minor categories.
-- -- Twelve nominations.
Both what did you think.
Stephen Spielberg's masterful director another great job here and well reviewed terrific performance through central role by Daniel Day-Lewis.
-- we also Sally Field -- talked to this picture she Gingrich he gets nominated again Sony have a great director.
Obviously a great subject the result is.
A lot of nomination at the risk of sacrilege.
I thought this film was overrated overrated I thought they -- -- -- but really fully expected to see Washington DC in April of ninety 1865.
-- created in the film did not do that what -- Darren route into this instead of doing a film about the civil war and fighting in the battlefield instead look at the political process.
It was a lot of critics and the public found that opera great topic and I love the dialogue back and forth but this film could have been made -- studio it is that a lot of grand stage not that that's where they cut corners I think Spielberg is just part of put his career he's done the big epic thing he's done the special effects thing.
He took a different route a more interior route and Oscars rewarded on that 13 topic here cargo 1979.
Ben Affleck decent film didn't think it was outstanding but a good film to watch would you think.
Well here's -- thing you know people thought Ben -- was gonna get.
-- needed at this year's Oscar he's not a -- the asking oh acting awards he's not up for best director he got snubbed passed over to know now why would that be well maybe people -- you know Ben -- has that are mean he's he's he's rich she's he's come -- attractive -- -- -- -- And now he's got snubbed its very odd that Ben after the left up this list because of also -- -- -- your movie critic do you think this movie was worthy.
Well did get it got great reviews from a lot of critics -- not the -- built a journal and it came in added there Joseph Morgenstern giving good review article gave the movie good review in.
It's surprising that he got snubbed in both as an actor and it's directed usually.
Oscar lows after directed people -- Robert Redford.
Kevin Costner to get embraced the Oscars didn't happen if I -- -- the best part about -- was when the credits rolled with the hand in the cookie Johnson in 1979.
And how they -- made them in 20112012.
But that is remarkable piece of a film making that aspect of it.
I don't know why every film is two hours and 28 minutes right now -- unfortunate -- no Oscar for best and credit so.
-- African model that is tremendous -- that.
New category today because time Chris Farley Wall Street Journal.
Couldn't I target chip and -- lane is also I got a few more on my list are.
