And the nominees are....

The nominees for the 81st Annual Academy Awards have been announced. Time to start beefing up on all of the pertinent films in preparation of filling out your ballot on Oscar night! It's no surprise to see Heath Ledger's name on the list-- he did a phenomenal job, and I'b be absolutely shocked if he didn't win for Best Supporting Actor. But I have mixed feelings about the number of nominations that "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" received. Granted, it was nominated despite lacking an R rating. And visually, it was very interesting to watch. But I felt that they could have done more with it. It was good, it just wasn't that good. However, it follows the formula for success, so what do I know?

That is hilARious. I agree with you. I think a lot of the acclaim must be prompted by the visual effects, which are exquisitely done. Otherwise, yep! We've seen it before.

Oh this it too funny. I haven't yet seen Benjamin Button...unless you count the many times I've seen Forrest Gump. I'll probably see it on Netflix later on.

This is funny. I had to hold in my laughter.

Well I guess I don't need to see it now... :)
