2010 Academy Award Nominations

The Academy Award Nominations were announced at 6:30 this morning (from LA, where it was 5:30). I was almost late for work, 'cause I'm really into all the movies this year. Plus I wanted to compare the Golden Globe nominations to the Oscars. Interesting. None of the five that were nominated in the Golden Globe Best Comedy/Musical category were nominated (so that excludes (500) Days of Summer, The Hangover, It's Complicated, Julie and Julia, and Nine. But since there are TEN Best Movie nominations this year, those five were replaced by four dramas and an animated film.

In the male lead actor and supporting actor there was only one change - Robert Downey, Jr. (who WON the Golden Globes) was replaced by Jeremy Fenner of Hurt Locker. And there one change in the supporting Actress category, addition of Maggie Gyllenhal (yay!) of Crazy Heart. At least I think that's it..... Now I have until March 7 to see as many more as I can! So here's the movie list:

"Hurt Locker" and "A Single Man" are both really good.
