I'm so happy for Johnny, but why did Cate get nominated instead of Angelina?
My heart is broken. Why was Angelina snubbed??? This is sooo sad. Congrats to Cate. I don't think she be nominated for Best Actress, but what are you gonna do??? Congrats to everyone expect Ellen Page. Don't like her at all.

I'm happy to see Johnny and Viggo being nominated. And Greentea1203, I haven't seen "The Assassination of Jesse James", but being a hugh Nick Cave's fan myself, I bet the soundtrack is really great and I trust your judgement. Really, I've watched "The Propostion" and that is one fantastic soundtrack (from the very same Nick Cave and Warren Ellis).

No Country for Old Men--great movie. I'm surprised American Gangster didn't get a "nod" kinda had big awards movie written all over it.

These are who I think and would like. I'm really happy for Ellen Page she is one of my Fav actress but I'm not sure I want her to win for Juno. I think I would like to see her in a more serious role that challenges her this role was great and she did well but I would like to push her more. Good Luck to everyone

I saw all five and my favorites were Michael Clayton and Atonement. I read that the score for There Will Be Blood did not qualify because it was not completely written specifically for the movie. Some of it was previously written.

I think James McAvoy got robbed. He should have been part of the best actor nominee list. I'm also shocked that Joe Wright wasn't nominated for directing Atonement. It was so beautifully done and I tend to believe that movies with Best Picture Noms should also get Best Director Noms. Loved 'Juno' but don't think that any of the acting was Oscar-worthy. Ellen Page is cute though and has a bright future ahead of her.

Hahah justin I'm just happy there is no sign of the magnificent one known as AJ. tHere was so much fuss about her elctric performance and she was on the Oscar Roundtable and Justjared was all up in her grill and her fans were so haunted by her perfrmance and then.......nothing. Must be embarrassing for all those publicists and media machines who over hype actors when they ddon't get nods but sucks for Denzel man.

I think they will work out a deal. Since the producers worked out a deal with DGA the other day, they can be held to the same expectations for WGA. I don't know why the Producers didn't suggest these terms in their recent dealings with WGA...must be a pride thing. The producers NEED the Oscars to make money on these films.

I saw There Will Be Blood this weekend, and I am still haunted by it. Very interesting movie. I suspect Johnny Greenwood was snubbed because his score is so untraditional. I thought it worked well with this movie, but purists say that it was too intrusive, and that you shouldn't notice a movie's score, it should blend in. I think Julie Christie has a lock on Best Actress. She has won so many awards already that share a voting pool with the academy. Plus, they sent out screeners for that might take more of an effort for people to see Marion's film. I am very happy for Casey Affleck. I wish Ben would have gotten more recognition for his directing in GBG, but I guess when it is your first film the want to make you wait for it.

Well well well after all the hype and bruhaha A Mighty Heart is nowhere to be seen and neither is American Gangster. I feel like this year's crop of nominees really sucks big time like BIG TIME!!!!

I can't believe Keira got snubbed! Honestly... I'm happy for Ellen Page, though. I doubt she'll get the win, but it's great to see her nominated.

Honestly my guess is that they will cancel the Oscars at the last minute. Because Hollywood supports the writers and they won't go against the writers, becasue with no writers there would be no actors. GET IT TOGETHER PRODUCERS! SOLVE THE WRITERS STRIKE ISSUES!
