Reaction shots are the (occasionally unintended) visual punchlines of award shows. For every tongue-in-cheek Martin Freeman reaction, there's a stone-faced Frances McDormand smash-cut for Twitter to crow over.

Anne Hathaway: What's She Doing in Gucci Cleaning Gutters?

Originally posted 02/07/2013 06:55PM

It's hard to look glamorous while cleaning leaves out of a rain gutter, but Les Misérables star Anne Hathaway, draped in a Gucci gown at PEOPLE's photo portfolio of Oscar nominees, shows us she's truly a woman of many talents.

And while in real life she may dress down a whole lot more for dirty chores, the Academy Award frontrunner says that at home, she's truly just like everyone else.

"I'm on the winning end of an award," Hathaway, who picked up a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for best supporting actress, tells PEOPLE. "That's very surreal and unusual. But then today I have a load of laundry to do!"

Oscar Nominations: PEOPLE Critic's Take

Originally posted 01/24/2012 02:00PM

Nominations are out for the 84th Academy Awards. Here is PEOPLE Magazine critic Alynda Wheat's take on what went down at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Hugo?! Fine, Hugo.
Leading the pack with 11 nominations is Martin Scorsese's kids movie that's not actually for kids. I confess that I still don't get it. Technically, Hugo is a triumph (you'll notice that the vast majority of its nominations are for technical awards), and Scorsese's nod for Best Director is certainly justified. But as a movie-going experience I still think it's remarkably cold (lectures about film history don't really move me). For my money, it's still a race between the French silent film The Artist and The Descendants, starring George Clooney, who did get nominated and Shailene Woodley, who missed the cut. Which brings me to my next point:

Snubs? What snubs?
Okay, sure, Golden Globe nominee Woodley might be a tad disappointed, as might Albert Brooks (Drive), Michael Fassbender (Shame), Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin) and even Steven Spielberg, whose amazing animated The Adventures of Tintin didn't rate a Best Animated Film nod, and who wasn't on the Best Directors list, in spite of the fact that his War Horse is a Best Picture nominee. But are these omissions actually snubs? Not really.
