I am SO HAPPY with Hal Holbrook's nomination for supporting actor. He was so moving in Into the Wild. I really, really hope he wins.

I'm overall very pleased with the nominations. Yay, Oscar season!

The animated category always makes me laugh... Why don't they just give the award to Pixar every year?

Don't get me wrong, I know there are better animated films out there but the academy continues to ignore them...

Japanese animators especially (Miyazaki being the exception) seem to get the shaft...

But seriously, Reitman's directing nom is completely bogus. They couldn't find another greater "achievement in directing" this year?

Not
Joe Wright
Sidney Lumet
Andrew Dominik
Ang Lee
Todd Haynes
David Cronenberg
Ben Affleck
David Fincher
?

Bogus.

How Emile Hirsch didn't get a Best Actor nod for "Into the Wild" is beyond me.

5 better performances?

They just picked the wrong ones though. Should have been:

Daniel Day-Lewis
Viggo Mortensen
Philip Seymour Hoffman
Brad Pitt
George Clooney/Tony Leung/Tommy Lee Jones (for No Country)

Even though it was really the supporting role, that's not how the studio has been promoting it. But yes, he was that good.

I think Best Actor is the strongest category this year. It would be hard for anyone to slip in there.

Happy to see Laura Linney get a Best Actress nod, instead of Angelina Jolie!

Very happy for Hal Holbrook, but Javier Bardem has this one pretty much wrapped up.

Haven't seen Juno, and i'm sure Ellen Page is charming, but is it really Best Actress calibur?

I'm sad about Eddie Vedder too. I would have loved to see him perform Guaranteed live. Oh well.

How many Elizabeth's has Cate Blanchett been in? It is like Helen Mirren's Elizabeth's.....you could be whoopi goldberg, star in Elizabeth and be nominated for an Oscar...there are plenty of other actors to consider in other roles IMO

^^LOL at the Elizabeth thing. I've wondered the same thing.
Cate Blanchett is a great actress though, so i'm glad she got the nomination instead of someone like Keira Knightley, who does the same damn performance in movie after movie.

On that note, what is the big deal with this Atonement movie? Is it really that good?

I enjoyed Atonement, thought it was a beautifully made film. It's just the kind of movie that Oscar loves.
