Oscar Nominations

Pleasant surprises ...

Melissa Leo
Frozen River
Michael Shannon
Viola Davis
Robert Downey Jr
Encounters at the End of the World
Happy Go Lucky

Disappointments cause they're missing ...

Mike Leigh
Sally Hawkins
The Fall

All I know is that Slumdog Millionaire is gonna kick Benjamin Button's ass.

Nice you haven't even SEEN Benjamin Button's ass to know if it should be kicked or not!

Oscars suck for ignoring Hawkins and Eddie Marsan of Happy-Go-Lucky.

John Malkovich also deserved a nom for Burn After Reading, but since that movie came out before November, Academy voters probably don't even know what it is.

I can't believe The Fall didn't get any technical noms. I had totally forgotten about that until reading this.

I have no desire to see Ben Buttons either! And I usually like Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchette, as far as Hollywood stars go. I really want to see Revolutionary Road though. Oh, and I'm disappointed about the Fall as well, although not surprised.
