2013 Oscar nominations: Who got snubbed?

With only nine films nominated for best picture, some critics and fans were left wondering why "Skyfall" didn't make the cut. Critic Tom Charity praised the flick, which was touted by many as the best "Bond" film to date. "It's been a long time since I enjoyed a Bond movie so much," <a href='http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/09/showbiz/movies/skyfall-movie-review-charity/index.html?iref=allsearch' target='_blank'>Charity wrote on CNN.com</a>. "By taking a good hard look at itself and going back to first principles, 'Skyfall' pulls off something quite special. This is Bond resurrected, redeemed and reinvigorated, ready to face a new half-century."
