I heard a joke once. Man goes to the AMARAs, says he's a sure thing. The guy at the door looks at the smiley pin on his lapel, says that he wasn't invited. Man says that there must be a mistake, he was guaranteed a nomination. The doorman looks at him sadly, as James Gandolfini walks in dressed as a muppet. "Right this way, Mr. Gandolfini, we've been waiting for you," the doorman says. The crestfallen actor breaks into tears. "But doorman," he cries. "Billy Crudup's thong got an AMARA nomination."
Well, it has D9 and the Basterds at least. Still need to see Elly, so who knows there. I kind of despised Prophet, Serious Man and Hurt Locker, but I was young and stupid then. Up is okay.
Edit: From here on out, I'm not gonna be putting five films in a ballot, as I feel that my ballots are too weighted towards certain films since I don't make lineups like everyone else. So FYI for the future. Also, I'm relistening to the Summer Wars overture and DANG I should have put this higher on my ballot. Bad movie, but good music.

nothing for Dogtooth or City of Life and Death, nice going guys. And you nominated Cotillard for the wrong movie (I get that everyone hates Nine but snubbing it for Cotillard, choreography, and costumes is just dishonest)
Still, at least these have been the most left-field picks in a while. Too much Prophet and Moon for my taste but these are mostly fine. I'm glad The Informant at least got a screenplay nod. Best Actor and Actress are pretty solid. Hoping for Inglourious to sweep.
