Very interesting choices this year and that there is a lot riding on these.
On these nominations and joining us now with some thoughts on all of this and the buzz.
From Hollywood we have -- we -- music entertainment report coming up.
I'm -- He's a fifth -- as well as Terry Todd was with foxnews.com as a contributor and have nobody here.
So -- written -- with what's your what's your take on this were you excited by the choice is -- a lot of surprises on his list look pretty.
What I thought I didn't article for Fox's outcome would make predictions and I think I -- better than almost every -- -- out there -- literally if you read my piece -- boxes dot com the place to go you've got a pretty good preview.
And today we -- a great -- for the King's Speech twelve nominations.
Including best picture director actor supporting actress says supporting actor still done very well the record for nominations is fourteen held by All About -- -- of the King's Speech came very close.
A right now we see a really tight race between -- King's -- in the social network.
We became speech strong showing to date is still there were only eight nominations I think we can think -- -- but we still have a ways to -- -- exciting race to watch in the coming weeks.
-- -- if you let me just put out there who the nominees are for best actress we've got the listed here we have Michelle Williams from blue Valentine.
Nicole Kidman -- rabbit -- Natalie Portman for her role in the Black -- Annette -- for the kids are all right and Jennifer Lawrence for.
Winter's bone what there are your thoughts about.
These these ladies and do you feel like there's a -- about it for best actress at this point and your overall reaction to the entire list that was presented this morning.
We'll -- -- -- -- that I didn't fail I thought that they were held back predictable and all of that well I do is add that I do you think that best actress will come down to -- -- in and and then -- I think -- -- Natalee probably has the edge and -- net.
I say I will be very surprised at Natalie does why they feel bad when -- and sent him why he's feeling yeah.
I'm but then -- a -- job acting wise.
But I love and get it comes Atlantic -- just get nominations -- a lot and gets taken into consideration.
-- -- Darren being something as small as.
As an up as a speech for the golf England Natalie really want to add to the audience with has fate she had.
Career -- my she had not she she really got it and next in previous he would and -- they -- as she tends to fall a little bit flat in that area.
And while -- did look cussing at -- that is something that they do take into consideration.
Is the overall package and what they can provide.
On the whole as a as an entertainer and as someone that we we got Iranians detained industry and I just I think that Natalie just has.
Has that extra little push that may be and that just doesn't plan hasn't recently I went.
-- I -- -- I think carried a lot of you would think -- your being judge specifically for your work in the film as opposed to the overall package in the persona that you all right.
Nobody using everything counts everything counts as -- he's in his speech -- the Golden -- it does make a difference in their record was better than a net by all accounts.
Also to hear -- Annette Bening in the kids or -- she's fantastic.
But it's pretty much an ensemble film wears a Black Swan Natalie -- -- -- -- scene in the film.
I had great command performance -- sort of victimized and tortured onscreen constable whose loved that.
The damsel in distress -- always works well.
I -- -- in -- Johnny Belinda Jane -- include that Jodie Foster the accused you navy -- screen you often win an Oscar.
Natalie Portman as she goes through it all here so I think she has the -- a small kids that the pulled out but -- -- Kelly's right to Natalie Portman could ever speak ready.
Very interesting artistic political list for best actor of the nominees are.
Can't berth for the King's Speech does CI Eisenberg -- social network.
James Franco for 127 hours.
Javier Bardem for the beautiful and Jeff Bridges for true grit not what was interesting on the list was James Franco for 127 hours I think.
And that was a nomination that made people perhaps were surprised by.
Oh yeah I think he was viewed as a sure thing only for the -- will he get we released this.
This performance in nominated for the Golden Globe a Screen Actors Guild award if it weren't for -- he might have a real chance of winning the intensity and it's still.
The film didn't quite as most people -- Intel windows well write it I admit I you know the fact that they didn't get a lot of buzz that's right there even -- see this as a dark -- -- a -- -- -- either had a chance to win let's face -- conference is going to win but I expected it's not only probably stated as well is that is that right from mr.
You -- get in their correct.
Yeah and -- -- and and I think it's sad and it doesn't quite nice he may the highest of the elegance as well too long and be up four or when they made -- made a lot of the eight innings that I kind of as a little bit that next -- plan silhouette with today think is nice but I agree that I think that.
Colin will be taking -- -- golden statue.
The best acts.
That's a great there has been that the great role for him and and in the movie certainly amazing how -- casting that's right act -- right -- -- -- indeed exactly -- culprit.
He's the one I think absolutely love this -- is no chance he can -- -- in the -- in this category -- -- including mr.
Franco but this -- conference awards so.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Among others I mean what do you what do you -- -- yes you know it's funny about a week ago everybody was saying that the race was over the social network which had been the awards juggernaut the entire -- season.
A best -- from virtually every critic's group in the US when the critics' choice award the gold -- best motion picture drama it seem like a done deal.
But that last weekend the King's Speech was the surprise winner of three Producers Guild of America work for best picture which is often an Oscar Bellwether.
-- -- can speak it extraordinary will twelve nominations ahead of the social network which had eight.
I think this can speak to win the ensemble award at this -- -- -- award this coming weekend I don't know I think King's Speech is is ahead right now.
A lot of people still seeing social networks -- with its public battle between those two films again my million King's Speech but a very very tight race.
A -- are there any other any.
Haven't anything that you would note in terms people that you thought would make the list but just didn't.
Well can't isn't one that I was really hoping when I believe that if I did have my -- and I was typing that she would get a nod for best supporting actress.
I just thought she was wonderful in the back blacks want to.
I mean I'm very -- that was my favorite media the F I would love to say that take best takes I die I think it will.
But Sam I'm I'm happy it was just nominated.
Miller unfortunately missed out on the nomination and I thought she was brilliant so I was a little bit sad -- has now -- that that was my biggest disappointment of -- -- Of the nominations they -- out.
What -- writer yes -- very well it's an issue we actually wrote down thoughts as a comment today little piece about the biggest snubs the date.
And I include -- new -- for best supporting actress in Black -- she was a nominee for Golden Globes.
Into the screen actors guild -- this coming weekend so it's human -- -- very good chance but she probably just missed a list.
I've looked at the academy -- probably thought the performance wasn't quite strong enough.
And turner from this one back into it definitely got -- -- by any means I just very talented so.
-- she couldn't have been an Oscar nomination -- a couple of -- so -- -- don't give up just yet to Mila -- says -- -- a -- -- -- -- what about people or other and look at upset about the haven't gotten off work Mark -- didn't Arnold answers Friday did not -- -- gets elected or nominated this right ears who one might print preview piece -- boxes up in my written that he might get knocked out of the -- best -- boxing -- because -- the -- was so competitive this year we look you have -- -- Jeff Bridges in true grit Colin -- King's Speech James Franco.
127 hours Javier Bardem -- -- for -- for beautiful.
As a very competitive category and remember any high ranking votes to get nominated and Mark -- is does he was he called it was a lot of balance but number 345.
He didn't have quite -- number one votes to get it it's -- real misfortune because he was fantastic until my seven nominations did very well.
He's lived on the cold that it's really not fair but he was terrific gonna be deserving Hollywood -- I.
Right -- but not and and male Lara -- then they -- in this stunning Obama's is but.
The reasoning is that it does what they quite a big enough to concert from the normal then normal -- -- -- almost self I think that.
They needed it it wasn't they're acting it wasn't all of the Raleigh and then they just they went they went that different to out of things that they normally played and I think that that.
That didn't have the chance summation factor and that's probably what stop them from getting nominated.
One of the note here is true grit received so many -- in combination yeah that's okay that's a remake.
A exactly what they originally Jon -- right so that's me is fascinating to know that this particular movie of the -- nation get so many nominations.
Because the original was is is it always -- -- popular favorite pants and one that.
You know people might in business and the actors themselves were a little bit.
Concerned about stepping into issues that -- -- you -- -- -- His -- true grit 1969 when John Wayne his only Oscar for best actor the only Oscar.
I won by that film and of course down more than forty years later that there was a -- done yet and in the room reviews have been fantastic the audience reaction just terrific person -- -- the box office ten nominations today.
I know we can do quite this woman its second.
In terms of their nominations behind the -- easy sale attest to the story itself because a new generation really want me a story of true -- my movie well I think it's moving -- -- this -- is good I think it's really more about the -- -- -- their loved by Hollywood to previous winners for best director.
For No Country for Old Men three years ago Hollywood love with it in this film the coveted a fantastic job the performances by Jeff Bridges in nominee at least until for best supporting actress.
Fantastic -- very different take on the original movie of this and more people of the book and Hollywood loved it ten nominations today is still a very strong showing.
You know hi Jeff Bridges is riding high recently I mean he's been you know out there in the public spotlight entirely.
-- many people thought you know it was all over for a.
-- land that I mean I loved Jeff Bridges and he is the -- of -- Nellie days seem out.
Unread continents and events he has all the time in the -- to talk to you.
-- -- I can say for a lot of the young -- today and and he's just a great great guy and I'm so happy that -- -- how many popular right now -- in a rat he's getting so he's getting some.
Terrific roles it over the last couple of years and how do you account for that he's finally Betty -- -- -- -- come back latest Korea -- from -- NN yeah yes -- first nominee at the Astros came for best supporting -- 1971.
-- The Last Picture Show you -- -- Ben Johnson and last year almost forty years later he finally won an Academy Award for best -- crazier.
A this year with with that true -- and -- is that a great -- -- suddenly hot again I really -- -- to see that you can make a comeback like this that it's not always the hot young stars and it'll be tensions so.
I think Wheldon and mr.
bridges and I have to see lots more from him at the Oscars are very in the in the future and overall from directing how do you see it I was about one because that's going to have a difficult that's right decisions for you -- -- -- -- Out of the cast of.
Players who are least likely nominee is very repetitive I think the social network David Fincher he was a previous nominee for -- 2008 said The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
I think he has the edge here he's won all the critics awards I think he's going to win the Directors Guild of America ward and even -- the King's -- wins wins this picture.
There will be split this year of the social network woman would win this directors -- -- -- to lose -- King's Speech really sweet and comfort to get in but I think the interest -- and they -- -- directing -- I don't have the last word but I know you guys are going to be watching very closely to -- lots of buzz about the Oscars between now and next month.
About a month from now as big night so we'll all be watching of course and what -- watching just seen who the winners are plus slowly watching.
To see what they're wearing thank you very much it's great to have you on -- thank you could take here.
