Oscar Nominees: Best Sound

My predictions: 3/5, picking “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and “Super 8” over “Transformers” and “War Horse”
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Hugo, Moneyball, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, War Horse

Without purporting to have much technical knowledge in this field, I’m disappointed that “Super 8” couldn’t crack this category, receiving a grand total of zero nominations. I’m not going to see “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” since I’m sure the sound and visuals are excellent and the rest of the film is terrible. “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” joins three Best Picture nominees here, and I’m fairly certain that the winner will be…

My current bet to win: “Hugo”
