The 84th Academy Awards Nominations were announced a week ago, on January 24th. I personally believe that this years' nominations are a little bit peculiar. Some big (and pleasant) surprises, not just for great nominations people weren't expecting, and other ones that never happened and made some people, actors, etc., really upset. The thing is that it is official, and now the race has begun. The 2012 Oscar presentation will take place Sunday, February 26th, 2012.

As promised when I posted the announced nominations, I've chosen my favorite ones for this special event.
