Think you should remove the link from the first category. Lincoln, the yet to be release bio-pic of Abraham Lincoln's life is definitely not the same as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as the link would suggest.

As an aside, 'Flight' for which Denzel has been nominated and Zero Dark Thirty are definitely not as good as Skyfall or TDKR. Seems that some of these films were just nominated by overly patriotic Americans.

It would have been nice to have some commentary with this list instead of just a copy and paste job and a google image search accompaniment.

I disagree. It's good to just see the nominations, plain and clear. Plenty of time and film specific sites for commentary.
