    Lots of interesting choices. I was happy with the inclusion of unexpected picks like Naomi Rapace as well as unconventional categories like Best Acting Ensemble and Best Action Film. Spreads the love around a bit

  • Carrie #2

    I got sooooo confused when I went to their site and was reading the nominations, and for Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams they have a picture of Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams instead. XD You know you’re on VH1’s website when…

    • Kat

      That’s hilarious.

    • m1

      WOW that was a fail on VH1’s part.

    • AK

      It’s been fixed. Too bad. That sounds hilarious!

  • alex

    Happy to see so much love for Black Swan & Blue Valentine

  • Victor

    I think it’s great Mila Kunis is nominated for her role in the Black Swan.
    I think she might be the next Michelle Willians….
    I mean she came from a show like that’s 70 show…….actually aside from the red hair girl, and of course Kutcher she is the only one working in films…I hope she gets a lot of succsess.

    • Mr. Holloway

      I just imagined Topher Grace reading your comment and getting really bummed out.

    • Bebe

      I can just imagine a lone tear streaming down Katie Holmes’ zombified face after reading your comment about Michelle Williams!

  • dominic

    I really like a lot of these choices. But I definately think that Michael Douglas should have received a Best Actor nomination for Solitary Man, and Catherine Keener should have received a Best Actress nomination for Please Give. I’m glad to see that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- Part 1 was given some nominations. I can’t wait for the Golden Globe nominations tomorrow!

    • dizzy

      I’m happy for HP’s nominations as well! However, it does have some tough competition.

    • Topher Grace

      I’m bummed out. :(

  • steph

    I think How To Train Your Dragon should have been nominated for best score. Honestly, it’s fantastic.

    • paige

      it should WIN it!

  • JDW

    Jennifer Lawrence in Winter’s Bone deserves Best Actress. She was SEVENTEEN when they were filming and she absolutely KILLED IT!

    • Cora

      Agreed. I recently saw this movie and she was fantastic! I really hope she gets an Oscar nod for best actress, also.

    • m1

      She was phenomenal, just like Carey Mulligan in An Education. It was an amazing film, too.

  • Mr. Holloway

    Great to see Chloe Grace Moretz getting some much-deserved awards love.

  • Ms. Cuntess

    Wow i’m surprised that even with 6 slots, Julianne Moore didn’t get in. Is it time now for a last minute scramble to campaign her for best supporting actress?

  • dizzy

    Good for Mila Kunis! She’s very talented.

  • Cora

    I really hope Inception wins best score. The music is actually part of the plot and really shapes the film. Plus, I just love it. I listen to “Time” and “Dream Is Collasping” constantly.

    • Kevin

      I agree 100 percent. The difference between seeing this in the theater and at home with just a normal sound system is unreal….

    • Hedwig

      yes yes yes. I agree with everything you said. I LOVE the Inception score.

  • Noelle

    So happy to see Portman, Williams, and Gosling nominated.

  • TALLAWAHBOI

    Julianne Moore gets snubbed – again. At least I still have Natalie Portman as the frontrunner for this year’s Best Actress :)

  • J.J.

    Black Swan sucks. Coen Brothers should have all the awards wrapped up. True Grit = instant classic!

    • Mel

      True Grit already WAS an instant classic. There wasn’t a need to redo the film.

      But at least it’s the Coens…

  • megan

    John Hawkes didn’t get a nod for Best Supporting Actor for Winter’s Bone? Unbelievable.
