My Thoughts on the Oscar Nominations

I’m going to say this right now, these are the WORST Oscar nominations since 2005. Kick-Ass and Scott Pilgrim didn’t get a single nomination, Alice in Wonderland got 3 nominations and Christopher Nolan didn’t get nominated for Best Director, still I am going to say what I think Will Win and Should Win at these awards, and what is missing.
