    Steve Jobs snubbed for The End of the Tour after The Social Network won and Moneyball was nominated.  Feeling good about my prediction that Sorkin and Carol miss Oscar too.

    “Axis Mundi”, based on the novel by Tom Perrotta

    You keep telling yourself that.

    ^ The Scripter Awards also nominated What Maisie Knew and The Spectacular Now over The Wolf of Wall Street. Do they have any influence on the Oscars?

    LOVE the End of the Tour nomination!! I hope that can surprise. It looks like it’s fighting Steve Jobs for a place in the Final Five.

    I don’t think the “Steve Jobs” omission is telling. The “Carol” absence is, however. It has a few mentions with critics’ groups (but it missed the Critics’ Choice) and it made the watered down WGA line-up, but I think “Carol” is the one that gets left out come Oscar nominations morning.
