Okay, has everyone calmed down yet?  I ask because today the Oscar nominations were announced and there is one big snub that everyone is talking/tweeting/writing about.  Like, epic fail not nominated kinda thing.  That's right world kids, Cher did not get nominated for 'Burlesque'.  I mean, what the hell were you thinking Academy members?!?

Oh, and Christopher Nolan wasn't nominated as Best Director for 'Inception'.

For the full list of Nominees, visit Oscars.org.

While most of the writing that's happened today has been about the non-nomination of Christopher Nolan in the Directing category, there are other things I noticed.  

No nominations for Leonardo DiCaprio for 'Inception', and no Supporting Actress Nominations for Chloe Moretz in 'Kick-Ass'.  

Missing from the Original Score and Visual Effects categories is 'TRON:Legacy'.  I have heard from some readers that they feel it will be nominated next year.  My thought process is that it was released on December 17, 2010.  That makes it a 2010 movie.  While the movie may have played into 2011, that shouldn't make it eligible for 2011 nominations.

What say you?  Who else was left out that should have been nominated?
