Oscar Nominations 2011

So the nominations for the 2011 Academy Awards have been announced.
To my surprise, Christopher Nolan did not receive a nomination for Best Directing (for his film "Inception").

What are some of the films and filmmakers you would have liked to see nominated this year?

The Official List:
ooh.. interesting.. thanks for sharing....gonna take a peak at the link now Laughing
The deed is done! The winners have been announced, and I couldn't be more surprised with the results.

Best Picture: King's Speech
Best Director: Tom Hooper for King's Speech
Best Lead Actor: Colin Firth for King's Speech
Best Lead Actress: Natalie Portman for Black Swan
Best Original Screenplay: King's Speech
Best Cinematography: Wally Pfister for Inception

King's Speech won a handful of awards. I didn't expect it to win anything.
What are your thoughts and rants?
I've seen it happening many times. One movie raking in all the awards. I would have preferred that they make a more evenly distribution of the different categories of awards among all of the movies. Does King's Speech really deserve all of the awards? I did think Colin Firth was great in the movie, but whether the movie deserved all of the other awards is questionable. Natalie Portman is a great actress, but I thought Anette Bening was better. But then perhaps they have rewarded Natalie Portman because it was a very exacting role she had to play. I think they did that with Hillary Swank as well a few years ago in Clint Eastwood's movie "Million Dollar Baby", but then Hillary Swank in my mind was better in that movie, compared with Natalie Portman in "Black Swan".
