I would add a few things:
- Shailene Woodley should have received a nomination for best supporting actress because of her excellent work in The Descendants. She stole every scene in the film. Including those that she shared with George Clooney.
- Though I haven't seen either film, I am surprised that Tilda Swinton didn't get a nod for her work in We Need to Talk About Kevin and that the film Young Adult received zero nominations as the buzz around that movie suggests to me that it was worthy of some acclaim.
