My first question is where is Kathryn Bigelow‘s nod for the amazing Zero Dark Thirty. This should have been her second win – the first was a triumph when she bested ex-hubby James Cameron when she won for The Hurt Locker. No one seems to do terror quite like this woman. Shame on the academy for not nominating her. And speaking of directors, where is Ben Affleck‘s nomination for the sharp drama Argo? How did Argo and Zero Dark Thirty make it to best picture without taking along their directors? I also wish John Hawkes had garnered a Best Actor nod. I’m looking forward to the show and am already sharpening my number two pencil to mark up my official Academy Awards ballot!
