  1. If you go look at the full list, it's an interesting collection...

  2. Pretty all inclusive...Other than missing 500 days of summer and where the wild things are, they pretty much got all of my favorites of the year.

  3. Those just didn't appeal to them, I suppose...

  4. It's pretty much what I would have expected from the BAFTA long list. I'm surprised that Bright Star, A Prophet and Fish Tank missed on a Best Picture Long List nomination.

    On the acting front, the big snubs appear to be Michael Stuhlbarg for A Serious Man and Daniel Day Lewis for Nine, both of whom I would have thought would make the list.

  5. More or less. I'll be seeing Fish Tank soon, I'm anxious to see what it's like...
