No Affleck, Bigelow or Tarantino in director. Replaced with Benh Zeitlin and Michael Haneke. No original screenplay nom for PTA. Riva and Wallis in actress over Mirren and Cotillard. John Hawkes missing out. Jacki Weaver getting in. No DiCaprio. Batman shut out of the tech categories.

Seems to be between Lincoln and Silver Linings Playbook for best picture.
Out of all you have mentioned I only regret they have overlooked Leo DiCaprio once again. I am wondering what more could he do as an actor to receive an Oscar. He has amazing, very interesting characters in his filmography and he portrayed them perfectly.
Hope Skyfall wins in Best Song and in Cinematography. That's about the only categories I have a fav and care about.

I have no problem with Lewis or Danes winning but Homeland went off the rails in the second half of Season 2.

Affleck wins again. Everyone must be pretty angry with the director branch of the Academy Liked his shout out to PTA

It was difficult for Homeland to follow S1 but I felt they did a good job though even though there were a few questionable plot lines.

How did Damian Lewis not win the Golden Globe for 2011?!

2012 turned out to be a great year for movies. The 3 movies that made the most money were great movies and many many of the award season movies are outstanding.

How could the Academy snub Affleck for director? I hope he wins at the DGA. Argo has everything going for it. Glad the BAFTAs acknowledged him.

Life of Pi is still my favorite movie of the year, but should Argo win BP, I would not be offended.

Everything that happened after Nazir arrived in the US pretty much. Not to mention the side plot of Dana and the VPs son killing a woman.

Or Brody managing to be alone forever in the VPs office in order to get the pacemaker number. The complete lack of development for Roya.

A lot of small contrivances, coupled with some hard to swallow twists basically.

I like Damien Lewis but I would like to see the show shift focus from Brody. Never going to happen though.

Some other things:

Nazir capturing Carrie in broad daylight in a car crash with no witnesses.

Nazir turning into some ninja to evade these specially trained SWAT officers numerous times in an abandon building.

Brody sending that text message from I assume a secure room in Washington D.C. to save Nazir in Beirut.

The CIA not following Brody when he went to meet the VP especially when they know he had planned to kill him.

Yup. Some terribly lazy writing.

And it's a shame because the show is willing to take risks. Since season one things happen when you just don't expect them to. The reveal of Brody's tape at the end of the second episode was a great example of this. Yet by willing to make reveals like this way ahead of the expected time, they seemed to be left in a position of needing to constantly top themselves, and the only way to get away from that is to start fresh with a new case.

Very true, revealing Brody as a terrorist early was good in a sense they didn't drag it out what we all knew but it did leave them open to pushing themselves to create new stories as you said.

Someone joked that S3 will be a version of this: Quinn and Saul v Brody

Not nominating Bigelow is such a travesty.

If you love Stanley Tucci, you should watch Murder One if you have not already.

Also, if you are fond of Star Trek TNG and Jean-Luc Picard, have a look at this:
