Tom Wilkinson and Tilda Swinton are both deserving in the supporting categories but I doubt they'll win. They'd get my votes, though.

I never saw the Elizabeth sequel, I loved the original and didn't want to ruin that after I read the reviews. But out of the movies I've seen I would have picked Amy Adams in Enchanted, she is perfect in that part and it's mighty tough to make that believable.

I'm overall very pleased with the nominations. Yay, Oscar season!
True, but Pixar didn't win last year. Happy Feet beat out Cars!!

Also, I can't decide between Daniel Day-Lewis (whom I love and gave a great performance again) and Viggo. Johnny Depp was good but not as brilliant as Daniel or Viggo.

While I'm not a fan of Paul Haggis, I thought In The Valley of Elah was a good film and that Jones was actually better in it than he was in No Country For Old Men, even if he was thematically the main character in the latter (and more resonant) film.

And I love, Lance, how you still managed to exclude Sean Penn from your "directors that deserved a nom over Jason Reitman".

I wasn't as crazy about Into the Wild as most people but I do find Sean Penn's absence from a directorial nom to be odd. I do think he's deserving of a nomination.

I think Angelina Jolie is also deserving of a nomination. I'm not even a fan but she was fantastic in A Mighty Heart.

Is anyone else surprised that Cate got a nom for best actress? Wasn't Elizabeth II: Electric Boogaloo widely panned? And doesn't the Academy snub good performances in crappy movies?

So widely panned I didn't see it (and I see everything I can). The Academy loves Cate but I was really surprised by the nomination. Maybe the reviews were all wrong?

I'm still not sure what I thought about There Will Be Blood although I'm still thinking about it so that's a good sign. I didn't think about No Country for a second after I left the theatre. There Will Be Blood is such an eccentric film, for lack of a better word, that it has really stayed with me. It's big, it's epic, it's slow, it takes its time, I laughed outloud a number of times which I didn't expect, Jonny Greenwood's music against that vast, open landscape was mesmerizing, Daniel Day-Lewis' character was complicated and the actor is a bit of a genius. Yeah, I guess it was all kind of amazing.

Maybe Blanchett had a great performance in an otherwise shitty movie?

I don't know, I don't agree with the Academy's voting methods / Oscar hype machine.

Anyway, as long as the No Country/TWBB tandem gets some wins, I'll be psyched.

Right, but I thought they tended to overlook great performances in shitty movies. Considering she was nominated for supporting actress (which I think she'll win), why not give this slot to someone else? Like Angelina Jolie?

It makes as much sense as 3 Best Songs coming from the same movie, but I digress.

Heh.

I haven't checked out the full nom list yet, so I don't know what was nommed ... but did hear Eddie Vedder and Mr. Radiohead were not.
