The 2011 Academy Award nominees are out today.

With the exception of Inception and Toy Story 3, genre films were pretty much relegated to the technical awards.

For the second year, we have 10 nominees for Best Picture and we get to speculate if genre films would even make the cut of five like there used to be.

One thing that did surprise me was Tron: Legacy not getting a nomination for Visual Effects. I was kind of hoping they could win one, just right the wrong of the first film being snubbed because “they used computers, and that’s cheating.”

So, what are your takes on the nominees and what genre films do you think will walk away with a statue?
