    WaPo planned ahead to be able to throw this up on Twitter so fast after the announcement. Great job in that regard.

    Tom Hanks not nominated, nor was Robert Redford. I guess the voters went for Bruce Dern over Redford in the lifetime achievement category.

    Meryl Streep over Emma Thompson is a bit of an upset as well. And no James Gandolfini in Supporting Actor surprises me.

    Inside Lllewyn Davis also snubbed (they only used 9 slots for Best Picture), as was Paul Greengrass for director.

    Full list:

    Hard to say anyone was "snubbed" - just a lot of quality films out this year.

    Is Blanchett the biggest lock?

    I dunno. Leto has an outside shot for making a "Brave Acting Choice."(TM)

    Leto was fabulous. There's no way the Oscar people give him this. He's not part of the fraternity.

    She was great, but Amy Adams was also great.
    Sally Hawkins very deserving in supporting role in 'Blue Jasmine.'

    If not Leto, Fassbender? Playing a brutal slave owner? Hill? Playing a coked-up hound? The Somali pirate? Cooper?

    I think Leto is going to win.
    Normally, I would agree, but the Academy loves when a straight actor throws himself into a role like that. I think Leto will win.

    I think Best Actor and Supporting Actress are the toughest categories.

    I read somewhere that Robert Redford refused to participate in any award promotion for "All is Lost" which I kind of rspect, but I can't help but wonder if it cost him a nomination.

    One of my buddies saw an early screening of Nebraska and got 75 to 1 odds on June Squibb winning best supporting actress. I havn't seen the movie, but I've seen her listed as someone who could surprise in a few stories.

    I liked American Hustle, but it doesn't seem like a Best Picture winner.
