Pretty good nominees (I’m glad Maguire took Renner’s place in actor). I overestimated The Lovely Bones big time (figured it’d be something they love) and underestimated The Hurt Locker badly. Oh well. And I’m also very surprised at the big snubbing both Bright Star and An Education are getting now.
