  • 15.7% - The Dark Knight Rises 269
  • 19.8% - The Avengers 341
  • 3.9% - Dredd 3D (and go buy a copy so we can get a sequel) 67
  • 2.4% - Some other movie I’ll mention in the comments. 41
  • 7.2% - I think the Academy made the right call as it stands. 124
  • 35.4% - Hold up, some people SERIOUSLY thought a BATMAN movie deserved to be nominated? HAHAHAHAHA! 609

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Dredd 3D was a great surprise. Probably my second favorite film of the year (after l'hobbit)

Joss Whedon stan reporting for duty. Also, the reaction to an Avengers Best Picture nod would have been super funny.

(For reals, though, Ben Affleck's director omission is 15 levels of bullcrap.)

Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

Cloud Atlas should've gotten 2 or 3 nominations.

Doesn't matter which ones get nominated. They'll pick some crappy film no one has ever seen (or wants to see) for "best" picture.

I haven't seen most of those movies. I saw two movies that actually were released last year, and only one was in the theater. I'm so Generation 3 Ponies.

I'm curious why people think a Batman movie should not receive a nomination. I would hope it's not just because it's a superhero movie.

Full disclosure, I voted for Skyfall.

The Dark Knight Rises was a great movie, I just don't think it topped the Dark Knight. It was such a good movie that I don't think they could have topped it.

It did. For Makeup and Score, I believe.

SAMSARA should've been nominated for Best Doc. It's absurd that it has received no recognition. Everybody go watch it.
