I agree, I wouldn't be surprised to see How to Train Your Dragon up for best animated picture. Its "tomatoe meter" is really high, probably the highest wide-release film rating so far this year. Really impressive.

Wow. Impressive. I think you might have hit the Best Actor catagory right on the head. I did notice there are no nominations for two movies I am really looking forward to that I'm sure will get some attention. 1. David Fincher's "Social Network", and Darren Aronofkyie's "Black Swan".

Look again, walktheearth. I do have The Social Network down for Adapted Screenplay. As for Black Swan, maybe an acting nomination or two, but I'm not making that guess just yet.
