2012 Oscar nominees

Academy Award Winner

So the Oscar nominations are out…

Hugo leads the field with 11 nominations but I am very pleased to see The Artist is not far behind with 10. I am very much hoping when I turn on Breakfast News on Monday 27th February it is all about the Artist winning. I’d be highly surprised if Meryl Streep doesn’t get Best Actress. As for the remainder of the acting awards, there are clearly front runners including George Clooney for Best Actor but none are as predictable as Streep especially given Dujardin’s Golden Globe and critics choice award. Maybe the BAFTAs will give some indication …
