Analyzing the 85th Academy Award Nominations

Oscar nominations morning has come and gone, and no more are we left with what can and what might be, only what is and what will.

What we’re left with is what are, and what will be, our Oscar nominations for the year in film that is 2012. Of course there are surprises and omissions, as there usually are, but looking at this list, I’m struck by one thing – this was pretty fun. I haven’t even looked at anything past the nominations list until now (how I did, how much stuff came out of left field), since that’s what this article is for, but I can say – all of this was quite fun. There’s definitely something to be said for them pushing up the nominations. On the other hand, I can’t help but wonder what these would have looked like with another week.

But, whatever. These are our Oscar nominees, and now, the best we can do was see how we did in guessing what they’d be, and what the categories are gonna look like going forward.

Here’s my analysis of the 85th Academy Award nominations: (more…)
