    Great poll! Just one critique, it would really help to know what some of these stars were in and what movie their performance was nominated for. I don’t recognize some of these actors. Maybe it’s just me though.

    The story behind the making of Beasts of the Southern Wild is really interesting, it was supposed to just be a small indie movie but it turned out to be really big and symbolic! And the little girl, so cute! Don’t know if she will win best actress but she definitely deserves the nomination. She was actually amazing.

    This is so exciting! I love Oscar season. We just did a poll like this in APUSH. I can’t wait to see the results.

    So beyond happy that Christoph Waltz won for Best Supporting Actor. His performance in Django Unchained was certainly one of my favorites. He is always chilling and Tarantino’s latest hit highlighted his talents. Also happy Jennifer Lawrence won. She was fantastic in Silver Linings Playbook!

    I always knew our readership was incredibly intelligent, but this obliterates any inklings of doubt in my mind. Our readership is likely the most intelligent in the nation. And yes, that includes Paly’s.
