Oscar nominations: what we learned

All indications coming into today's announcement of nominations for the 85th Annual Academy Awards were that things were going to be unpredictable. To say that this came to fruition could be argued either way. I personally say yes. Several nominations were surprises. At least one entire category is a full list of surprises. The omissions of some names from select nominations, and some films from even a single nomination is something I can't say I saw coming (Sorry, fellow Batman fans). There is plenty to be noted from what we heard today.
