I love Oscar Stats.
- Meryl Streep breaking her own record for nominations with 18.
- That we might have to utter the words “Oscar Winner” and add “The Lone Ranger” after it.
- 49th (!) Oscar nomination for John Williams (Soundtrack to The Book Thief) and he is still 10 shy of Walt Disney.
- Cinematographer Roger Deakins looking to avoid going 0 for 11.
- Jennifer Lawrence has her 3rd nomination at age 23 – the youngest to do so. (Teresa Wright was 24).
- Gravity is only the 5th film to be nominated for all 7 technical awards. Titanic swept all 7. Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, Hugo, and Life of Pi did not.
