80th Annual Academy Award Nominations

It's a sad commentary on the current state of Hollywood that of all the films nominated for Best Picture, Direction, and Acting, there is only one I have any interest in seeing: JUNO.

Well, I suppose I might amend that and catch CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR sometime, just for Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts, knowing full well that its history and politics are inaccurate.

On a happier note, RATATOUILLE was nominated for Best Animated Feature, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Score, while three songs from ENCHANTED were nominated. (Does that mean they'll cancel each other out?)

Sadly but not unexpectedly, no recognition for Amy Adams' delightful performance in ENCHANTED, probably because it's a Disney film which is as close to G as a PG movie can get.

Previously: 78th Annual Academy Award Nominations, 79th Annual Academy Award Nominations.
