The Oscar nominations are out for this year, and there aren’t a whole lot of surprises, at least not for me. And I’m happy to say that there’s no possibility of musical winning best picture this time around. There are always movies that you saw that don’t get any nominations, yet you think they were fantastic. I saw a fair numbers of movies this year, thanks in no small part to Bittorrent. I really liked Buffalo Soldiers, but it’s not much of an Academy movie. There was also American Splendor, which managed to pick up a screenplay nom. And City of God, which managed to do quite well for itself. I don’t know about Sea Biscuit for best picture, I just found it a bit cheesy. Johnny Depp got a best actor nom, that’s good news.
