Excerpt: "The lead cast is impeccable, with British actor Richard Armitage (“Captain America: The First Avenger”) capturing the grimly determined countenance of Thorin Oakenshield perfectly. Armitage has made a name for himself playing solemn, brooding characters in both film and television.

The Hobbit:An Unexpected Journey received Oscar nominations in:
-- Makeup and Hairstyling
-- Production Design
-- Visual Effects
