    I didn’t nominate it for picture or director. It’s not the Oscars it’s my favorites. Not everything need be high brow or something the academy might consider even.

    Thats right it’s what we consider our favorites Best in the year and honestly comedic performances are always overlooked

    Sorry, guys. I’m new to the site and sometimes forget about stuff like that. Anyways, my pick for that last spot would be Sam Rockwell for Conviction. I see a lot of people tend to forget how good he was in that movie. It would have been cool to see a great character actor like Rockwell in that category instead of a bland pick like Ruffalo.

    Some comments:
    – I’m going to start ranking the Best Picture “nominees”.

    – 2010 was another strong year for lead actress. Many performances didn’t make the cut: Jennifer Lawrence in “Winter’s Bone” (IMO her best performance ever), Natalie Portman in “Black Swan”, Greta Gerwig in “Greenberg”, Isabelle Huppert in “White Material” and Carey Mulligan in “Never Let Me Go”. Tilda Swinton didn’t win despite speaking italian with russian accent (!) perfectly, as Giovanna Mezzogiorno takes the prize for her turn as Mussolini lover in “Vincere”.

    – I’m not a big fan of David O. Russell, but Christian Bale is amazing in “The Fighter”.

    – Chloë Grace Moretz was #6 in supporting actress for “Kick-Ass”.

    – I added a sixth slot in supporting actress of 2009. I forgot Imelda Staunton for “Taking Woodstock” (an underrated Ang Lee movie, to be honest).
