Oscar Nominees

The Oscar nominations were announced this morning. Rather than make a LOOOONG post of all of them, go to this link for a list.

I am really surprised over a few things.

#1-- Dreamgirls was not nominated for Best Picture. Whether or not it is the best picture, it won at the Golden Globes. I can't believe it wasn't nominated. Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy got nominations, and a ridiculous THREE songs from the film were nominated (while the best original song from the globes wasn't nominated at all), but no best picture.

#2-- Volver wasn't nominated for best foreign language film.

#3-- Abigail Breslin was nominated for best supporting actress. I'm thrilled! She was amazing in Little Miss Sunshine, and now ties with Tatum O'Neil for the youngest actor/actress to get a nomination at 10 years old.

I have at least 3, but preferably 5, movies to see before Feb. 25th. Notes on a Scandal, Little Children, Letters From Iwo Jima, Pan's Labyrinth, and Blood Diamond.

That's all for now.
