Great to see "Beasts of the Southern Wild" get four major nods, including shocker (but deserved) for Best Director. Glad to see Tarantino and Bigelow skipped there--protests obviously had some effect. But Mark Boal got "original screenplay" nod for "Zero Dark Thirty," although should be in adapted screenplay category--adapted from CIA briefings.
