A friend of mine is one of the producers of "Freeheld!" GO FREEHELD!!

Jolara said...

That's cool ice angel, good luck to your friend!

Woo Hoo! Go Johnny Depp!!!
Ah Ha, Pitt got stepped over while Casey got a nod. :0) (sorry, he annoys me)

Awesome set of Actors chosen for lead. Should be interesting!

Kat said...

The best actor category is really exciting to me. I think every one of them are amazing in their own way so I'll be happy no matter what.

Go, Ellen Page!

Quick story-Last year, an old lady was in my store and she mentioned that her granddaughter had written and directed her own film. I said something like 'that's great', thinking it was some sort of school project or something. Then she told me that her granddaughter was Sarah Polley, and the movie was 'Away From Her'. I am kind of teary-eyed for the success of the film, and feel happy for grandma who was clearly proud of her grandchild! Good luck, Sarah!

Kory said...

Wow, the leading actor category has never been hotter with Clooney and Mortensen.

The yellow with gray text is very difficult to read.

Kara said...

Hope Oscar steps up his game for the 80th Partay. This could be a good one. I heard Jon Stewart's been wetting his pants with worry.

I like a lot of the nominees especially fellow Canadian gals Ellen Page and Sarah Polley.

Anonymous said...

I'm with kory, ent - bad font choice. It's ok, we only care about the movies not what they're nominated for. ;)

My #1 happiest happy that got a nominee is Tilda Swinton. She's amazing in everything, and she better win, dangit.

Second happiest nominee: Hal Holbrook. He was so heartbreaking in Into the Wild, I'm so happy.

Something I feel odd about: Ruby Dee is the only African American nominee in a performance category -- and I thought it was a bad performance in a boring movie.

something else I feel odd about: Cate Blanchett is a goddess, but Elizabeth: The Boring Age was horrible and she wasn't so hot in it either.

jlb said...

That's a long way from Avonlea Sarah - way to go!!!

I find it hilarious that people around Brangelina got a nod - even her ex freaking husband - and not them. Karma does work on occasion.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Please let this be Johnny Depp's year. I always felt like he was robbed the year Sean Penn won for "Mystic River"

Nicola said...

I haven't seen American Gangster, but Ruby Dee is a legend. She started her film career in the 1930s. I think her nomination is more about honouring her contribution to American Film, than anything else. I rather see a nomination (and even an award) go to someone like her, than some upstart we'll never or barely see again (eg. Jennifer Hudson, Mira Sorvino, hell even Marisa Tomei).

Alice.W said...

jlb - totally agree with you about Karma working.

Also great news about Sarah Polley, living proof a child actress can be sucessful.

mngddess said...

I just hope that Daniel Day Lewis doesn't win. He's a good actor, but his performance is typical of his usual work. I am rooting for Johnny D. His performance was incredible. If not him, then Viggo. Gotta love Viggo.

And does anyone else feel that, although Cate Blanchett's performance as Bob Dylan was unusual, it was also a tad creepy?
That Marion Cotillard is gonna win anyway.

Oh, and I hope Casey Affleck wins. That would be cool.

Kat said...

Just saw 'La Vie En Rose' and I have to say that Marion Cotillard was absolutely incredible. She really nailed that performance in every way, and the makeup nomination is totally warranted. It was a transformation.

Which ex of Angelina was nominated? She only has two, and I know it wasn't Jonny Lee Miller, right? Either I'm blind or I'm missing something.

It is sad how much excitement the Oscars bring me. I'm already trying to figure out what junk food I'll be eating and what pajamas I'll wear when they're on.

Umm...if they're on.

knm2003 said...

hey i dont remember from timmy/shimmy but has anyone even won the best actress and supporting actress in the same year cause i see cate was nominated for both

jlb said...

Angie's ex - LOL Sorry, I was thinking Billy Bob when I read Tommy Lee! My bad. LOL

Twisted Sister said...

Cyn, mega CREEPY! You can't sit through that without thinking, "This is a woman, playing a man". It's distracting. And as disturbing as Eastern Promises is, Viggo, with the accent and the way he's a bad guy with a heart. You can't beat that. If you're a Viggo lover and you haven't seen him in Hidalgo, I highly recommend it.

Twisted Sister said...

Cate is the new Meryl Streep. She's a great actress, but doesn't deserve to be nominated every time.

Anonymous said...

nicola - I agree with your position re: ruby. It's a shame it can't be like Hal Holbrook where it was a fantastic performance, too.

knm: no one has ever won both supporting and lead actress in the same year. But concurrent nominations have happened before. Here's a list of all the interesting trivia about this year's nominations.

twist - I think you're right. Cate is the new Meryl. But Cate's better at comedic roles than Meryl.

Judi said...

Teams Cotillard and Depp!! But it'll probably be Day-Lewis and Christie. I think Blanchett will get the Supporting award, though I adore Swinton, a favorite since Orlando. Hoping Diablo Cody gets Original Screenplay.

Twisted Sister said...

DN, AMEN to that!

Mooshki said...

mngddess, Casey doesn't stand a chance, even though he did a great job. They might as well just hand the Oscar to Javier right now, and deservedly.

kellysirkus said...

no Angelina? wow!

Johnny Depp for the win!!!

kellysirkus said...

no Angelina? wow!

Johnny Depp for the win!!!

budford said...

Ooh Johnny Depp

budford said...

Ooh Johnny Depp

SarahT said...

I'm surprised Angelina Jolie & Keira Knightley weren't nominated for Best Actress or Amy Adams for Enchanted but i'm so glad Ellen Page is for Juno, i love her.

And Javier Bardem for Best Supporting Actor too!

Mia said...

team viggo all the way.
