Best Art Direction has this year been renamed to Best Production Design. And Best Makeup is officially Best Makeup and Hairstyling.
Jan 10th, 2013 at 13:54 GMT
For the acting & directing I think you should have to name the person instead of getting credit for the movie. Hathaway is misspelled.
Jan 10th, 2013 at 16:07 GMT
Why is Anne Hathaway misspelled AND replacing "Suddenly?"
Jan 10th, 2013 at 16:10 GMT
Good format but you'll need to do a little clean up. In supporting actor, you've misspelled the first name of the second nominee. In original song, either the 2nd entry has the wrong title or that film is a lot more meta than I'd expect.

Every year on this day, there is a race to be the first to post the nominee quiz. Once they're all off of the "most recent" page, it'll become impossible to tell who was first, because they'll all show as having been created on January 10, 2013. But congratulations on winning this year's race, just beating out Moise, TheCoolerKing and zutluvip.

Sorry guys, didn't fully check for errors when releasing and then went to sleep for a few hours (finished it around 3am, my time). Typos and factual errors have been fixed but let me know if there are any other errors, acceptance issues or suggestions.
@zalkon2004: I get this comment every year (this is the fourth year in a row I've made a quiz like this) and while valid, I personally prefer to focus just on the movies, hence the leniency in this series (it also helps you get the answer when I make basic, silly errors in a person's name!)
@moviegoer74: Thanks! There was some pretty furious typing as the nominations were read out.
Jan 10th, 2013 at 20:36 GMT
Damn, Ben Affleck got snubbed for Best Director. I was certain he would take home the oscar in the end!
Jan 10th, 2013 at 20:53 GMT
@kyll: I was going say the same thing about Richard Gere not getting nominated for Arbitrage. Upon reading your second sentence, I'm glad I didn't.
Jan 11th, 2013 at 04:16 GMT
No Django Unchained for Best Original Song or Argo for Best Director? And no mention of Looper or The Dark Knight Rises anywhere?
Jan 11th, 2013 at 17:55 GMT
Not one mention of the Dark Knight Rises. /me shakes fist at Oscars!
Jan 23rd, 2013 at 19:38 GMT
I like how you just do the movie. It's fun to see how many nominations the movie got when you type in the film. Actor's names names would work for a quiz just focused on them. Also, why do we only recognize the names of the actors, but not sound designers, cinematographers, etc. Everyone is on the same field. Love it!
Jan 23rd, 2013 at 20:15 GMT
Oh and you should go back and do more years!
Jan 25th, 2013 at 18:49 GMT
No Cloud Atlas either...at the very least, that was the best makeup and costumes I've seen in a very long time.
Jan 27th, 2013 at 20:37 GMT
Just a suggestion: I would personally not group the acting and directing performances under its movie, but rather make the user type in each actor's and director's names individually. I understand that barely anyone knows the writers, cinematographers, etc. But I think it's fair to make people guess which actors and directors got the nods. Great quiz, otherwise.
Jan 27th, 2013 at 20:42 GMT
Rant about nominations: No Cloud Atlas for best makeup, score, visual effects, or editing? No Dark Knight Rises for best cinematography, and possibly visual effects, sound editing, and sound mixing? No Marion Cotillard for best actress? No John Hawkes for best actor? No Ben Affleck, Katherine Bigelow, Quentin Tarantino, or Tom Hooper for best director? No Looper for best original screenplay? I understand that there are only so many actors/directors/producers/editors/writers that can be nominated, but I think the academy snubbed a few people this year. Pretty good job overall, but as always, some deserving people missed out. IMO, of course.

great quiz! i can't believe there's no tom hooper or ben affleck for director.
Feb 24th, 2013 at 15:39 GMT
It isn't accepting just "Arkin".

Shame on the Academy for not having Perks of Being a Wallflower nominated for Best Picture
Feb 24th, 2013 at 17:16 GMT
I have a feeling that Life of Pi is going to be like Hugo and win alot of the technical awards.
Feb 24th, 2013 at 18:52 GMT
Feb 24th, 2013 at 19:19 GMT
Jessica Chastain isn't accepted
Feb 24th, 2013 at 20:15 GMT
I got Snow White and the Huntsman only because I remember being so shocked seeing it on the list of nominations. wtf academy?
Feb 24th, 2013 at 21:12 GMT
It did have good costumes.
Feb 24th, 2013 at 21:43 GMT
I don't know why people get so worked up over these award shows. Great films get remembered. Lesser films don't. Shawshank Redemption didn't win anything. E.T. only won technical awards. And the kicker: Shakespeare In Love beat Saving Private Ryan for best picture. Good film will get the recognition they deserve in time.
Feb 25th, 2013 at 14:50 GMT
It's a shame that no one felt it was necessary to include the two documentary categories, or the two short-film categories to make this a complete quiz. Surely they are just as impressive as something like sound mixing or hairstyling?
