80th Annual Academy Awards

So the nominations has been announced earlier today:


I'm happy for Atonement and Juno's nod, both deserved their places. As much as I love Atonement to win BP, it is highly unlikely, missing the Best Director and Editing noms (that's a real disspointment).

Daniel Day-Lewis have had a clean-sweep so far this year and surely will bag this also. Happy for Viggo to get the nom and Depp again. Also nice to see Tilda got nom as well, I thought she was really great in Michael Clayton - and an unexpected but deservedly for Miss Linney? Lastly, but surely not least, a big Well Done to Miss Ellen Page.

What are your thoughts?

Bit of a shame Atonement wasn't included in the Best Director noms.  I don't think it should have won but the Dunkirk scene deserved the nod at least.

I think the strangest thing about all this is Norbit getting a nomination.

will be inetersting this year..no strong candidate to win BP....great to see Depp nominated (although i think Day-Lewis will win).

Great to see "Katyn" by Andrzej Wajda nominated Happy

I'm actually totally stunned this year. I think this is going to be the bleakest Oscars ever. Not taking into account the whole writers strike possibilities, pretty much everything nominated is the kind of artsy fartsy stuff almost no one enjoys watching. Even I haven't heard of half of the things nominated and I follow movies. Look for super low to ridiculously low ratings.

What ever happened to movies getting nominated that actually drew crowds to the theaters? Not counting Return of the King (which is a whole topic in and of itself) I think the last movie I can think of that really packed em in was Titanic and that was 10 years ago.

First time I heard about the title "There will be blood", I thought it was some sort of sequel to "Saw"
