Ecco l’elenco completo delle nomination agli Oscar 2012. Come c’era da aspettarsi, The Artist ha conquistato la maggiori candidature: film, regia, attore protagonista, attrice non protagonista, sceneggiatura oltre a scenografia, colonna sonora, montaggio. Non molte le sorprese a dire il vero, e forse le categorie dedicate agli attori ci offrono qualche spunto di riflessione, come la nomination come migliore attrice non protagonista per Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids, oppure per il grande Max von Sydow in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. Ma Bridesmaids, in Italia Le Amiche della Sposa, ha conquistato anche una nomination come migliore sceneggiatura originale. La gara tra le signore si presenta agguerrita con una ormai onnipresente Meryl Streep, fresca fresca di Golden Globe, che dovrà vedersela con Michelle Williams, Glenn Close, Viola Davis (bravissima) e Rooney Mara. Per i signori invece i giochi sembrano già fatti poichè il francese Jean Dujardin potrebbe lasciare tutti a bocca asciutta, soffiando la statuetta a George Clooney, Demián Bichir, Brad Pitt e persino al bravissimo Gary Oldman. Interessanti invece le nomination per il miglior film, con l’outsider di turno Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, il classico sopravvalutato Allen di Midnight in Paris e i pezzi da novanta come The Artist e The Tree of Life.
