“Silver Linings Playbook” Dominates List of 2013 Oscar Nominations

Anne-Hathaway-Fantine-Les-miserablesThe granddaddy of all awards shows is finally nigh, as nominations for the 85th annual Academy Awards were announced this morning.

And if you’re a betting person, Silver Linings Playbook, Les Misérables and Lincoln are leading the pack.

It’s slim pickings for LGBT films and representations, though queer folk did get honors: activist/journalist David France’s seminal AIDS doc How to Survive a Plague  is up for  Best Documentary, out playwright Tony Kushner scored a Best Adapted Screenplay nom for Lincoln, and gay filmmaker Chris Butler’s  ParaNorman, is up for Best Animated Feature.

And, of course, gay-fave Adele might add an Oscar to her mantle with the theme from Skyfall (called it).

      Who selected this pathetic lot? Argo and Life of Pi are the only movies that I enjoyed. I want to see great moviemaking honored. Lincoln? Dear God, save us from sloooow movies that flourish on pretense end schitck.

      I’m so happy to see that Beasts of a Southern Wild was not forgotten! It is a phenomenal piece of film making. It’ll lose to Silver Linings Playbook, but I’m glad it was nominated at least.

      Who writes your headlines? Lincoln received 12 nominations. Life of Pi received 11. Le Miz and Silver Linings Playbook each receive 8 and your headline claims that Silver Linings Playbook “dominates”. Just how does receiving 4 fewer nominations than the leader qualify you to be described as “dominating”?

      This is a solid list, but totally unremarkable.

      And 100 Black Bibles from the Django soundtrack should have gotten a best song nod. That shit is WILD.
