Oscar Nominations & Awards Show
 
You know, when I was younger and more of a fanatic I used to make a point of waking up in time to catch the nominations. Living on the East Coast, or even in Chicago, made this a lot easier. But getting up at 5:30am here in Los Angeles? Fuck that.

On top of it, I have a cold and I was in no state of mind to interrupt my sleep.

Well wouldn't you know it, but I woke up a few times in the middle of the night, and the last time I said to myself "Well, it couldn't hurt to see what time it is."

5:15.

FUCK.

Hopefully I'll be able to get back to sleep after this. It might be hard to if I punch in my television screen in the even that Benjamin Button or Fincher fail to get the big noms.

no to Kung Fu Panda!

(bet it does too!)

:up:

anyhow, I have only ever stayed up twice to watch the Oscars, cause they used to be here at 1am til like 5am so with 2 hours sleep I was like a dead pile the next day.

I have not seen all films to comment. :D:D However this Benjamin one looks interesting.

I have a feeling thou (not seen it yet) Mickey for Best Lead?

lazarus 01-22-2009 07:59 AM

Couple noteworthy things:

Sally Hawkins NOT getting a nom, esp. when the screenplay did.
Melissa Leo and Richard Jenkins (non-stars in indie films) get noms.
Winslet not nominated for Rev Road, but for The Reader, and in LEAD.
The Reader getting Best Picture and Director (although the Academy LOVES their Holocaust films)
Frozen River screenplay nom over Woody Allen.
Pitt getting in over Clint.
And perhaps, not very shocking, The Dark Knight not getting a Best Picture nom.

I'm bummed that Cate Blanchett and Benicio Del Tori aren't up there, but I'm so happy that Gran Torino and Clint got that shaft that I'll live.

I have a feeling that Oscar night will be a good night to be a Slumdog.

elevated_u2_fan 01-22-2009 08:03 AM

Robert Downey Jr?? Fantastic! Not a chance in hell he'll win but still...

mad1 01-22-2009 08:04 AM

I'm just glad I get to see that crazy hotness (I say that in a good way) on the red carpet. :shifty:

impy13 01-22-2009 08:08 AM

I don't know why, to me, these noms were anticlimactic. Anyhow, I've got a lot I need to catch up on. Amazing to see how many acting nods Doubt got. I really need to catch that one.

And RDJ? Should I bite the bullet and see Tropic Thunder now? I thought it looked terrible.

mad1 01-22-2009 08:09 AM

jaysus riding on a circus ball! where is my head at! LOL! thanks Elfa :D:D

anyhow anyhow. no matter what its prob fixed that Ledger wins BSA.

lazarus 01-22-2009 08:13 AM

The list above has been completed.

impy13 01-22-2009 08:14 AM

Well, "Man on Wire" is a lock.

Also...


JAI HO!

mad1 01-22-2009 08:16 AM

some day I want to see Leo DiCaprio back up there in the Leading Noms. :up:

GirlsAloudFan 01-22-2009 08:17 AM

No Bruce or Miley for Original Song? Shameful, Oscar, shameful.

ETA: Yeah, that shit's gotta be incomplete Laz. I always thought there were 5 nominees for Original Song.
