I have no idea how Cloud Atlas missed the cut on this, but as I follow the Oscars for the first time in a serious way, I’m learning that nothing really makes much sense. The list further assures the Academy’s appreciation for Snow White and the Huntsman – a film that might pick up four or five tech nominations. It’s also nice to see Looper included, considering the VFX snub a few weeks ago. My guess now that Cloud Atlas is gone would be: Lincoln, Snow White, and Men in Black 3.
“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”
“Men in Black 3”
“Snow White and the Huntsman”
