Given the announcement of this year’s Oscar nominations last Thursday, and the Golden Globe winners on Sunday, today we want to know what you think of the 2013 award season?
Do you have a favourite nominee who (you think) deserves the accolades? Do you even care? Are the various awards bodies on target this year, or are they on a completely different track from the movie-going public? Let us know.

I still like the Academy even though they always mess up some nominations. Hoping for Lincoln to win stuff (just for Spielberg’s sake) but I haven’t seen all the nominated movies in the Best Category list to really say. But that is what the next couple of weeks are for.
(But my early noms would be for Phoenix and Hoffman for The Master. They aced it.)

I don’t get why The Dark Knight Rises was totally snubbed. Yes it was a disappointment in terms of its script, but technically all involved did an outstanding job.
Hans Zimmer was nominated for the gloomy and dull Inception score, but not his outstanding stand-alone effort here? I mean, who didn’t leave the theatre without the League of Shadows’ chanting stuck in their head? Heck, even Hathaway and Hardy are excellent in their roles, in fact they are more enjoyable with each viewing. The props and effects are outstanding as well; “The Bat” is really well done!
So without a single nod, something feels strange. Maybe it was the Aurora shootings that gave the Academy an uneasy feeling about this?
