Does a complaint about uncredited art used in “Exit Through the Gift Shop” lend credence to the veracity of the film? [The Carpetbagger]

Dave Karger does the math to figure out what the nod tallies will be of our frontrunners. Probably a bit heavy on “The Social Network,” though. [Inside Movies]

    Dave Karger’s nods look alright to me, but lately I’ve been wondering if Inception could get a costume design nod. Japanese themed outfits, elegant dresses, classy office suits, mountain military sets… It’s quite the wardrobe for each character.

    I think if any contemporary film surprises in the Costume Design category, it’ll be something more feminine and theatre-based, like “Black Swan” or “Burlesque.”

    As for Karger’s predictions, I’d love to read his reasoning for “The Social Network” scoring an Art Direction nod.

    Speaking of which–“Black Swan” did really well with BFCA and the BAFTA longlists. Could it garner a substantial number of nominations?

    “The Social Network: 11 nominations”!?!?!?!?!?

    In reality that number will be closer to 7. Social Network stands a really good chance of having fewer nominations than The King’s Speech, Inception, Black Swan, The Fighter, AND True Grit.

    The Departed “only” had 5 nominations and managed to win. However Babel lead all nominees with just 7 noms followed by The Queen with 6. Point being The Social Network could enter the final stage of the Oscar race looking quite underwhelming. Hell, Toy Story 3 could manage 6 nominations, 1 less than The Social Network.
