    And the list of Oscar nominees reads: Oscar Wilde Oscar Isaac Oscar De Lahoya Oscar Pistorius Oscar ...

  • Paul - 2012-01-24 16:14

    Not really the most exciting list of movies, although I would like to see Hugo. Where are the likes of Inception and Avatar of 2011?

  • Utopian - 2012-01-24 16:44

    A rather insipid list. Not only is South Africa's art performance declining (as opposed to developing like one would expect after 1994), the rest of the world is not doing a lot better either. I have to say that Tintin's animation (even though it's performance animation) should've been there too. It is a subjective snub. The fact that the Oscar list ALWAYS is a concerted effort at subjective snubbing of meritorous candidates, could be some consolation for Tintin and, for example, Charlise Theron.
