This morning, Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone announced this year’s Oscar nominees, and as usual, there were met or exceeded expectations, dashed hopes, glaring omissions, and pleasant and unpleasant surprises. We have the standard contradictions: How can “Zero Dark Thirty” achieve “Best Picture”-level greatness without a nod for its director, Kathryn Bigelow? Increasingly, I suspect that the expansion of the “Best Picture” category to up to 10 nominees is so that Academy does not have to constantly explain itself on this front. That said, they only nominated nine films this year, and “Moonrise Kingdom” is not one of them. It’s not just an occasion for being bummed out — it’s a travesty. And furthermore, Anderson’s work on that film is the most obvious example of a director’s impact being felt and seen in the final work. But no nomination. He and Roman Coppola received the “Pulp Fiction” memorial nomination for “Best Original Screenplay.”

Sigh.
