But as a disappointment I have three bets that didn't make it to the nomination.  On the Actor for a supporting role category, I'm really looking forward for Andrew Garfield to be nominated.  His performance in the Social Network is magnificent and even considered as the heart of the film.  If Jesse Eisenberg is nominated then Garfield should also be on that list.  Another one that is a big bummer is Nolan being the director of Inception, which is primarily one of the best film of 2010 is also not nominated.  And finally in the Visual Effects category, Tron Legacy also didn't make it to the final cut.

Though the three won't really make that big difference since everyone on the list are also quite good and probably they could even lose the race but that's beyond the point.   What really matters here is being nominated is already a big achievement to these people.  Being nominated is being recognized on the job you did well and in my opinion these three deserves to be on that list.

I'm looking forward to hear some explanations why these three are not included.  Very very disappointed right now.
