I'm not sure if that's true. There should be five nominees, not three.

There's also the matter of the song's placement in the film. I think songs that play over the end credits are considered ineligible, or less merited, or something.

I don't think that's the case, is it? Didn't THTBA play over the end credits of Gangs Of New York for instance?

Miley Cirus is one thing but no Bruce? That is OUTRAGEOUS!

I don't think that song from Wall-E was played during the actual movie, I'm pretty sure it was the first song played in the credits. And I also could've sworn that there are always 5 song nominees. Bruce is going to be angry and he'll probably write a scathing anti-Oscar song about this snubbing.

Not even Gran Torino getting its just non-nominations make up for The Dark Knight, everyone else from Rachel Getting Married, and Springsteen getting fucked, man. I haven't seen The Reader yet, but it looks like it's filling the "WWII/Holocaust Drama" slot that should belong to either The Dark Knight or, hell, even Wall-E.

Fucking old people, mang.

And RDJ? Should I bite the bullet and see Tropic Thunder now? I thought it looked terrible.
Amy Adams is flat-out laughable throughout, too. She's so-ooo earnest, omg!

You really should see it, imps.

Wow, Bruce did indeed get fucked.

Why only three songs?

And I don't see anything on wiki about a recent rule where the song playing over the credits isn't eligible. If I recall, the song from Wall-E was played over the credits, too.

I don't laugh when it comes to Amy Adams. I'm too busy suffering from excruciating erections.

I'll try to see almost all these films in the coming weeks. Right now my priority list is as follows:

Synecdoche (Despite no noms)
Rachel Getting Married
Been Jammin' Buttons
Doubt
Frost/Nixon
The Wrestler


And fuck, there are probably more.

Slumdog is so fucking overrated.

The Holocaust is just backstory in the Reader. It focuses more on post-war guilt of those living in Germany, rather than just the trial like the trailer makes it seem. That kid did a great job, even in speaking English which he had to learn to play the role.

A predictably disappointing nomination list
