Just moments ago the 2011 Oscar nominations were indeed announced and from.
In Los Angeles good morning to Dominic.
Good morning how are you guys -- doing just fine we want to get all the latest news so let's talk about the best picture nomination I understand you think it's a nail biter.
Between which two counts.
Well I mean look it looked up until recently like the social network -- the film about the story of the founding of FaceBook.
It looked like they pretty much had a Ronald Reagan style landslide going here they hadn't swept the critics' awards Golden Globes and then the producers guild award happen this weekend and the King's Speech the story of king George the sixth speech impediment his battle to fix it.
That certainly took the big prize now we have a real race.
And also factoring in there would be that the movie the Brian loves the fighter.
While the fighters a great film you're not gonna hear any argument from me and in any other year it would be a total tko but again -- King's Speech and social network.
You really have the best of what the academy and Hollywood can really offer.
Good mainstream films strong stories at a real difference in generation and approach you look at a younger generation and they see the social network is the film of our time and older generation see an inspirational story in the King's Speech that transcends any time.
Right hey let's talk about the -- IE got James Franco who's got to be dominated.
So he he's going to be hoses at mile and a lot isn't it and then halfway.
It's I think it's actually great I think by the academy is moving future forward here.
It's extremely rare the you have I host as a nominee like you have -- Jimmy Franco but that guy can -- anything he can do anything I'd say being hosted the Oscars is the only job that Jimmy hasn't had this year and and she's true Hollywood glamour I mean what more can you ask.
Of course he was in an.
He's in -- 127.
Hours the real life story of the climbers had to cut his own arm off let's talk a little bit about the predictions that you got rights Christian Bale and -- -- Well I mean Christian Bale is to me it it's -- no it's a no no question.
Christian is going to take the best supporting actor.
Win just like his former Dark Knight -- star Heath Ledger did a few years back you know our awards and columnist Steve ponds here at the -- dot com.
Besides a couple of ones that he mess we're really surprise of the Cohen Brothers got best director for.
True grit he pretty much got to clear sweep prediction here so it's looking like a really good and interesting race.
This is a year I think where Hollywood is really gonna show the rest of America the kind of good films that they can make the strong -- they can make.
And this interesting enough these are popular film brought -- -- see a repeat of the Hurt Locker where not a lot of people loved it but very few people sought sure this is a big year.
Yeah and you mentioned -- true grit they wound up with ten nominations the King's Speech leads the pack with a dozen.
But one movie that got snubbed.
You know I mean.
I wonder about this Christopher Nolan one of the great directors of our time.
It was surprising a couple years ago when a film as successful as the Dark Knight returns did not get -- -- nomination or win.
It tells you a little bit more about Hollywood -- perhaps warm comfortable with that -- overlooking these films inception was -- Tremendous success and it was a film of really something of Hollywood showing a different look at film making a forward look good -- good story and yet Christopher didn't get it you know surprising exception itself got a best picture nomination.
But Christopher Nolan that was a mistake on the academy's part -- Dominique -- about supporting actress.
Well I'm really surprised you about I gotta think it's gonna go to Amy Adams for the fighter the fighter might actually clean up in the supporting actor actors nominees categories.
Amy was fantastic.
Absolutely fantastic so is she doesn't take that prize.
I'm gonna demand a recount.
Now write any other big surprises.
Well I mean -- -- I would say here that really the look forward to is look at what happens next tonight is a state of the union and politics -- in the air but nobody -- sharp elbow hard -- politics as much as they do in Hollywood.
The producer King's Speech producer Harvey Weinstein and the producer of the social network Scott Rubin.
These tours -- locked in a death match for their picture to win best picture.
You are definitely gonna see that the numbers go up and we have the director's -- coming on Friday night and then we have the screen actors award on Sunday so you know it's about to get become a tight race fan and -- before you -- who's gonna win the Super Bowl.
You know not my predictions are so perfect look I'm just surprised I wanna see how how President Obama gets through tonight -- let's talk about one battle after another will be celebrating all night we're all going to be watching -- -- baton from the rap.
