That’s really all I have to say about the nominations, Ben Affleck got snubbed. Argo was one of the best movies of the year and he didn’t get nominated for directing (although it’s up for Best Picture). Don’t take this year’s nominations seriously; Flight got a nomination for writing.
The 85th Academy Awards will take place on February 24th, check out the nominations below:

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane brings his boundary-pushing brand of humor to the big screen for the first time as writer, director and voice star of Ted. In the live action/CG-animated comedy, he tells the story of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish…and has refused to leave his side ever since.

Here is the first trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s feature directorial debut Ted starring Mark Wahlberg and Macfarlane as the voice of Ted. It’s a pretty great looking trailer showing how much promise this movie has to be as rude and crude as an R-rated comedy can be. The film also stars some Family Guy regulars – Mila Kunis, Joel McHale, Patrick Warburton, and Giovanni Ribisi.

2012 is here and so is another line up of movies, I won’t be the first to say this but, it’s going to be an incredible year for the movie business.
