  1. Fincher and Sorkin both fully warranted their nods. Tough luck for Jennifer Lawrence as she was amazing in Winter’s Bone. Also close one between Firth and Franco in acting. Overall good results but you have to wonder how a film like The Tourist got any nominations at all. Fun, yes, but award worthy…no.
