entry arrow12:25 AM | ... And Oscar Makes the Cut



What? No Dreamgirls for Best Picture or Best Director? No Volver in the Foreign Language Film category? (Our very own The Blossoming of Maximo Olivero was already shut out from the short list of ten last week.) No Borat's Sacha Baron Cohen for Best Actor? No 51 Birch Street or This Film is Not Rated for Best Documentary? No Devil Wears Prada's Emily Blunt or For Your Consideration's Catherine O'Hara (the perfect comic, ironic choice) for Best Supporting Actress? No The Queen's Michael Sheen or Babel's Brad Pitt or The Departed's Jack Nicholson for Best Supporting Actor? This year, Oscar opted for a lot of surprises. There was no way anyone could have predicted anything.

And, oh my, dear old funky crotch-grabbing Marky Mark is now an Oscar nominee. Eddie Murphy, too. Call that an evolution.

The complete list of Academy Award nominees can be accessed here. Read the story here, and the shocked or happy responses here.
