The nominations are out.
very pleased to see these:
especially schnabel getting a nod for best director.
Juno is said to do very well this year.
I thought "Michael Clayton" was a fantastic film.
George Clooney was great, but Tom Wilkinson was fantastic. Glad to see both of them got nominated.
I would really like to see Ellen Page win, but I have a feeling Cate Blanchett will.
I expect Mr. Depp to finally get what he deserve but he's up against some good actors with great performance this year.
Juno is a great movie.
I guess Transformers is almost as good, since it got only one less nomination than Juno!
I'm very happy about Juno getting nominated for all of those... the rest were pretty expected but it was off the wall enough that I didn't expect if to be nominated for the big ones (best director, best actress, best picture).
The worst part of this is the fact that Eastern Promises only got one nomination. Oh, and the fact that Juno was a best pic movie is shocking. I can deal with Ellen Page for her best actress nomination, but Best Picture is pushing it too far for Juno, even for the Oscars.
Don't leave out Julie Christie. She's a former winner herself, but won hers before Blanchett was born (and when Page's mother was rather young herself, I'm sure). She's a tremendous actress and gave a great performance in Away From Her.
I never thought the guy whose legs I hugged would end up being nominated to an Oscar Award!
Tommy Lee Jones for Elah? Really?
Atonement and ratatouille are really nice films!!
Apple also has the list on their site WITH trailers http://www.apple.com/trailers/awards/
Don't worry. Comedies don't win for Best Picture. "American Beauty" in 1999 was humorous, but not really a comedy. Musicals like Chicago can win, but that's rare. I couldn't think of a comedy that won Best Picture so I looked it up, and I see that "The Apartment" won for 1960. Was that a comedy? Even if it was, that kinda proves my point.
Have you watched "12"?? If not urgently recommend you to watch it!
If someone has already watched, please, share your impressions with us!
So another big storm is hitting LA tonight so the red carpet might be a little soaked.
So the show is officially at 5PM PT; does anyone know when the actual announcements start?
I am watching it! hopping that some of my predilect movies win
Usually the first awards will start right after the opening act. But don't expect to see everything at once. They are gonna drag it out to 4-5 hours.
Ah, right. Never have really sat down to watch the Oscars. Thanks!
There have been people that have said that comedians should get more credit. The Academy seems to frown upon comedy performances even tho a lot of great roles have come from comedians. I would love to see a best comedy category.
Me too. We know there are good actors who do comedies. We see that most clearly when they do dramas. Examples: Dan Aykroyd in Driving Miss Daisy, Whoopie Goldberg in The Color Purple, and Robin Williams in many films.
I think it is harder to be funny on cue than to be dramatic.
I just saw (24 minutes ago) No Country for Old Men, and I'm still shocked by Javier Bardem's acting. I worked with him a few years ago, and couldn't imagine him looking so... cold.
SNL had fun last night making fun of Bardem's character and a few others from the Best Picture nominees.
I really can't stand the glamour side of Hollywood. It's such bull****.
