Thoughts:  I think the biggest shock here is Blanchett missing, even though they have the film listed in Best Ensemble.  It's weird to me, but it's not like I haven't given nominations to a film in Best Picture and snubbed their Lead, regardless of the reviews, and this year is VERY tight, but Streep over Blanchett?  No McQueen?  That is also really strange to me.  More love for Johansson and a double up for McConaughey...and Tucci?  I haven't seen the film, but I have seen 'The Hunger Games' and he isn't anything special in that so...

  1. Ok, all of these are starting to blur in my mind. :) Happy for DiCaprio, Franco, ScarJo, and Lake Bell, among others.
