|Kidman in Paperboy: I can't wait to see which clip they choose.|
Other notable pleasantries are a Best Actress hat tip for Marion Cotillard in Rust & Bone, Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Master Javier Bardem in Skyfall, and Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DeNiro and Bradley Cooper for Silver Linings Playbook. Cooper is a mild surprise, as Joaquin Phoenix didn't make the cut for his highly touted work in The Master, but I think Cooper is completely worthy.
The nominees for Best Ensemble Cast are:
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Silver Linings Playbook
