At this point in the race, very little can be achieved ruminating over who was and who was not nominated, though. Each group has its own preferences, and one ought never to expect the Academy to follow suit, no matter how likely it may seem. So what if Kenneth Branagh isn't here. So what if neither The Help nor War Horse scored a single nomination? So what if that Best Editing line-up is terrific - can you imagine what people would think if you said any of this aloud? Very little of this matters unless it results in Oscar nominations, and very much of it will not. They may be respected in their own right, but the OFCS is just a drop in the water of a very big pond.
