———————————————————–

Yes, I’m showing support for the blockbuster. I think the Academy has to give “Hunger Games” the love it deserves somewhere. I’m also giving Mark Ruffalo a Supporting Actor Nom for ‘The Avengers’, because i think his performance is good enough for it. As for Dark Knight Rises, the original got a buttload of noms, so why shouldn’t the sequel? I also realize that Anne Hathaway has a role in Les Miserables, and has oscar potential with that part, but I think she has more to work with in Dark Knight. Updates on these predictions will come as the season begins to unravel.
