The Oscar nominations were just announced. Best picture nods go to The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon, Milk, The Reader, and Slumdog Millionaire. More after the jump.
There is less than an hour before the Oscars air. I’ve decided to make some predictions again this year.
Best Original Screenplay:
Diablo Cody – Juno
I loved the writing in Juno—very clever.
Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role:
Cate Blanchett – I’m Not There
Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role:
Julie Christie – Away From Her
Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role:
Javier Bardem – No Country for Old Men
He has creepy down!
Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role:
Daniel Day-Lewis – There Will Be Blood
“I drink your milkshake! I drink it up!” Loved it.
Ethan and Joel Coen – No Country for Old Men
This movie was a bit insane, but some of the subtleties in performances were fantastic.
No Country for Old Men
I would rather see There Will be Blood get it, since I enjoyed it more. The unresolved plot in No Country for Old Men was a bit frustrating but it’s a movie that stays with you and I think it’s a sure thing for the win.
