Hopefuls are.....Best Actress nominees Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn) and Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). Best Adapted Screenplay for The Ides of March. Best Supporting Actor Christopher Plummer (The Beginners) and Kenneth Branagh (My Week with Marilyn).  

Come February 26th millions will be tuned into the celebrations and intently watching the red carpet to see who is wearing what!  We know we will be!!!!

A surprise for us was the lack of a nomination for Leonardo Di Caprio (J.Edgar).  Expected to be a shoo-in for a statue, he was 'snubbed' from the Best Actor category along with other expected hopefuls Ryan Gosling (Ides of March) and Michael Fassbender (Shame).  

What is going on!!???

Well we shall see how this glamour-filled evening plays out in a month's time!
