Best Motion Picture of the Year
The Oscar nominations are in. Best Picture nominees are Babel, The Departed, Letters From Iwo Jima, Little Miss Sunshine, and The Queen. I haven't seen any of them, but personally I hope either Letters or The Queen win.
And yes! Will Smith did get nominated for The Pursuit of Happyness. Although, I'm perfectly happy with all the nominees for Best Actor. I would like Peter O'Toole to win because he's lost all those other times. Same with Martin Scorsese for Best Director, just give it to already! And we all know Helen Mirren will win for The Queen, although I wish Kate Winslet could win an Oscar for once. (She should have won for Eternal Sunshine, cough)
And Curse of the Golden Flower got nominated for Costumes. Unfortunatley my favorite movie of 2006, Casino Royale, got completely shut out. Why no love for Best Song? Dreamgirls gets 3??? But I guess that's to make up for the fact they didn't get nominated for Best Picture or Director.
Ahh have I mentioned this is the most wonderful time of the year?
