BAFTA, the British Academy for Film and Television Arts, has released a list of nominees in advance of its February 12th awards ceremony. Nothing all too surprising here, with plenty of love being shown for THE ARTIST, HUGO, and TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY. Though DRIVE received nominations for both Best Film and Best Director, which is pretty damn cool considering how it has been more or less ignored by awards organizations thus far.

I have two questions upon seeing this list, however: 1) Where is Rooney Mara, and 2) with THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN being nominated for both Best Animated Feature Film and Special Visual Effects, where do we draw the line between the two? Do we even need to?

Extra Tidbit: Seriously, Rooney Mara should be collecting awards everywhere she goes. What's not clicking out there in the minds of voters?

Strange. For months I heard Warner is pushing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows P2. for a Best Picture Nomination at the Oscars.
If Harry's homeland award doesn't favour him I don't think the Oscars would.

The Help is The Blind Side of this year. A movie that made cash, connected with the general audience, but that isn't worthy of best picture nomination. (Better than The Blind Side though)

The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo should have been nominated in the editing category.

Extra tidbit: No!
