2010 Oscar Nomination Predictions UPDATED

So here you have it, one of, probably, the least shocking Oscar nomination announcements of recent memory. I guess the biggest shock would probably be The Blind Side being a Best Picture nominee, but the more one thinks about it the more it makes sense... it's a feel good movie that plays well on DVD, made gobs of cash, and it has a winning performance from one of America's favorite actresses. It had everything going for it that something like Star Trek didn't. Did we really think there would be room for 3 best picture nominees with aliens? I think not. What The Hangover didn't get nominated? How could that happen? Oh wait, THIS ISN'T THE MTV MOVIE AWARDS. I'm a tad disappointed that 500 Days of Summer failed to get a Screenplay nod, but it's a small film that I'm sure was a little ways off the Academy's radar. At least James Cameron didn't get one either. Up is now the 2nd animated film to be nominated for Best Picture. And Up in the Air's chances of winning best picture is zero to none now that it didnt score that all-important Best Editing nod. Avatar and The Hurt Locker tied with 9 nominations a piece. It's definitely between them, and I'd have to give the edge to The Hurt Locker. I mean it was nominated for Best Score for pete's sake. The Basterds are nipping at their heels with 8 nominations, Hans Landa is ready to exterminate any film that gets in his way, so watch out. See you March 7th. see all the nominees here:

(from Monday) So here we have it, Oscar nominations are finally making themselves known on February 2nd. Anyone who’s anyone just simply can’t wait to hear the Academy announce their first list of ten Best Picture nominees since 1943. Will it be filled with Blockbusters (ie “Star Trek”)? Will it be filled with little movies no one’s seen (“The Messenger”)? No one knows how this is going to work out including me. How many shocks can we expect on nomination day? Can Zoe Saldana become the first CGI performance capture performance to get Oscar recognition? Will something like The Blind Side actually be nominated for Best Picture? Heck, will the “Star Trek” reboot actually compete for the top prize? Will “Up” be the first animated feature to be nominated since “Beauty & the Beast,” or will it be relegated back to the cartoon animated feature ghetto? And what’s with no one predicting “Ponyo” as a best animated feature nominee? I think the categories I’m most anxious to see (besides best picture) are the supporting acting races. How many surprises will we see? Anthony Mackie and no Stanley Tucci? How about neither? Will Penelope Cruz overcome “Nine’s” critical and box office drubbing and actually breakthrough? Will one of the female Basterds get recognition? Will the “King of the World” knock out 500 Days of Summer in the Original Screenplay category? Only time will tell. Here are my fearless predictions. See you Tuesday.
