Thoughts on Oscar nominations
Okay, why the HELL did The Blind Side get a nomination? Well, this makes Bullock the frontrunner, not because that nominees from Best Picture nominees win often, but because it shows strong support for her movie, which will give her enough momentum to edge out Streep. So happy that Maggie Gyllenhalll got a nomination! Haven't seen Crazy Heart yet, but what a great surprise! Also pleased that Precious and Up In The Air got six nominations, but I'm surprised that 500 Days Of Summer didn't a Best Original Screenplay nomination. Well, I didn't like it that much, so I can't say I'm sad. Best Actor looks like Jeff Bridges and Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress are both locks for Christopher Waltz and Monique. Oh, and I finished all of the 50's and 60's Best Actress winners! I'll make a post on how I'd rank the winners each decade soon. So, I'll be taking a break from seeing the winners. But I might a Best Actress profile though and it'll be either for 1940,1962,1967, 1988, or 2006. Which ones out of those years do you want me to do?
