    Every year when the AMPAS announces their Academy Award nominees in their annual tradition, another annual tradition takes place. Almost instantly the entire internet is flooded with movie fans listing the snubs and surprises the Academy gives to us in very generous doses.

    Let’s predict what will make up those lists, come Thursday. List them and I will put them underneath the headings below

    Snubs
    Joaquin Phoenix (The Master) missing out in a competitive category
    Emmanuelle Riva (Amour) being dropped out of a very weak field

    Surprises
    Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained) making it into Supporting Actor
    Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) appearing in Lead Actor

    Lol! I still say Phoenix is IN. The film itself has seen a major dive, but I’m not so sure this will extend to every member of the cast…nor ANY member of the cast..

    Snubs: Kidman
    Surprises: none

    SNUB: 
    Ang Lee for Director
    John Hawkes for Actor
    Amour for Picture

    I wouldn’t bet on it, but I could see Django missing out for Picture

    People like Phoenix, De Niro and Kidman are all 4th-5th-6th place contenders so I don’t think any of them missing or getting in would be a snub or surprise.  

    In terms of real outliers, but still within the realm of possibility, I think the following would be surprising:

    A reduced Best Picture lineup (5-7 nominees) with Les Miserables getting snubbed
    Rachel Weisz getting in for Lead Actress
    Samuel L. Jackson getting in for Supporting Actor
    Samantha Barks getting in for Supporting Actress
    Ang Lee getting snubbed for Director

    So this is a wish list? LOL!

    Argo wins an Emmy, instead of any noms for Oscar
    Doona Bae makes it in for Best Actress. Or is almost every single person in the film Supporting?
    Jack Black gets that nomination

    I have more….
