Congrats to all the nominees...except Idris Elba...Why is he nominated for Obsessed? Same goes for Black Dynamite. That movie was hideous! You've got to be kidding me. Super excited about Paula Patton's nomination (finally!) and Sophie Okenedo's, as well as American Violet's nod (but its star Nicole Beharie was snubbed?!). Oh, and Lenny Kravitz, you shouldn't be here you're not an actor (though you look good trying). Same goes for Mariah Carey (I've been begging for her not to be in any more movies and here she goes again--and being nominated at that!). Her performance was not a standout (maybe for her it was), and will NEVER win next to Mo'Nique. Lastly, who doesn't belong--Sandra Bullock? Kinda sticks out like a sore thumb here... It's hard enough to believe they're billing her as an Oscar frontrunner (whodathunk the woman from Speed and All About Steve?). Share your thoughts!

Why nominate Elba if you're not going to nominate Beyonce? And yes, I would Beyonce over Bullock THAT's how much I hate The Blind Side.
