The Oscars have announced their nominees, and now it's time for Gold Derby users to have their say on the best films of 2012.

Voting is now open till Feb. 4 for the 11th Annual Gold Derby Film Awards. Nominees will be announced Feb. 8. 

If you're already registered at Gold Derby, cast your ballot by going to your home page and clicking on Gold Derby Film Awards Nominations 2012 under the heading Vote: Gold Derby Awards in the left-hand column beneath your photo.

Over their first decade, the Gold Derby Film Award for Best Picture has matched the Oscars six times, including last year's winner, "The Artist." Best Director has lined up five times, while 12 out of 20 lead acting winners were the same. Click here for a complete history of these kudos. 

Daniel Day-Lewis competes for his third Oscar this year for his performance as America's 16th president in "Lincoln," and he could be in the running for his fourth Gold Derby Award: he previously won Best Actor for "Gangs of New York" (2002) and "There Will Be Blood" (2007), and was honored again as Best Actor of the Decade for "Blood."

A fourth win would tie him with all-time acting champ Meryl Streep, who won Best Supporting Actress for "Adaptation" (2002) and Best Actress in three of the last four years, for "Doubt" (2008), "Julie & Julia" (2009), and "The Iron Lady" (2011).

Peter Jackson is a two-time Best Director winner, with consecutive victories for "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" (2002) and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" (2003). He could return to the race for his "Rings" prequel "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey." 2005 champ Ang Lee ("Brokeback Mountain") could contend again for "Life of Pi," as could 2009 winner Kathryn Bigelow ("The Hurt Locker"), who was snubbed by the Oscars but could be resurrected by our users for helming "Zero Dark Thirty."

Christopher Nolan, never nominated for a directing Oscar, won our award in 2008 for "The Dark Knight." Does he deserve a return trip to the winner's circle this year for "The Dark Knight Rises"? Or should he perhaps step aside in favor of other acclaimed action blockbusters like "The Avengers" or "Skyfall"?

You decide: Should Gold Derby fall in line with the Oscars this year, or instead correct their mistakes?
