The Oscar Nominations

The Oscar nominations have been announced, and we've already kicked off the speculation. The Best Avtor award looks interesting, though I can't see past Jamie Foxx.

ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE

Don Cheadle - HOTEL RWANDA
Johnny Depp - FINDING NEVERLAND
Leonardo DiCaprio - THE AVIATOR
Clint Eastwood - MILLION DOLLAR BABY
Jamie Foxx - RAY

Jamie Foxx also nabs a best supporting actor nomination. The last person to do this was Al Pacino in 1992 for Scent of a Woman and Glengarry Glenn Ross.

Kate Winslet is nominated for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Charlie Kaufman gets an original screenplay nomination for same.

Nice to see Laura Linney be nominated again although the interesting on in the Best Supporting Actress category is Sophie Okenodo for Hotel Rwanda.

Scorsese and Eastwood go head to head for Best Director. Be nice to see Marty get one, but if Goodfellas couldn't beat Dances With Wolves...

I'm pleased to see Super Size Me pick up a nomination in the Best Documentary category. My McDonald's ban has been well worth it.

Finally for fun fact fans today being Burns Night in the Best Adapted Screenplay category for Million Dollar Baby is one Paul Haggis.
