Is there anything on the list that shocked you? Anyone (or any film) you thought should’ve been included? I’m a bit disappointed that Bryce Dallas Howard didn’t get a supporting nod – she was amazing in ‘The Help’ and this final installment of Harry Potter was incredible and deserving a nomination, in my humble opinion. I’m crossing my fingers and toes for Demian Bichir and Viola Davis!
