    Really glad to see Jonah Hill getting a nomination for Moneyball, along with Brad Pitt.
    Was definitely hoping Ryan Gosling would get a nod for either Drive or The Ides of March; pretty gutted that Drive didn’t get a nod in any of the major categories.
    I’m glad that The Tree of Life has quite a few nominations going for it, though. I wasn’t sure it would, with the hype dying down post-Cannes, so that was good to see.
    Would’ve also loved to see Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Yeoh in the Best Actress category; Melancholia and The Lady were both superb.

    All the same, some brilliant films and brilliant choices, and as usual, very much looking forward to the end of next month!
