Oscar Nominations 2008

Best Motion Picture of the Year
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008): Ceán Chaffin, Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall
Frost/Nixon (2008): Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Eric Fellner
Milk (2008): Bruce Cohen, Dan Jinks
The Reader (2008): Nominees to be determined
Slumdog Millionaire (2008): Christian Colson


Well. Revolutionary Road didn't get nominated. That's good. But The Dark Knight ALSO didn't get nominated. That's bad. And The Reader? I mean, it was good, but not Oscar good.

However, I'm really glad to see Kate Winslet only get nominated for The Reader, and in the Best Actress category, because now if she wins, it'll be for the right film. Also, now I need to see Frozen River.

I'm glad to see Josh Brolin AND Robert Downey Jr. with Oscar noms. Totally well deserved. And Heath Ledger, bless him. I can only hope he wins. The Best Supporting Actor category this year rocks.

And hey, In Bruges got nominated for best original screenplay. Woo.

Best Song- No Bruce Springsteen? Okay....
