2005 Oscar Nominations

Tuesday, January 31, 2006
The Oscar Nominations are in. I'm sure in the coming days and weeks I'll come up with something to say about the major categories (which means that this is the last time you'll see most of these categories listed or discussed here). I haven't seen nearly as many movies this past year as I have in most years so a lot will be flat out conjecture.

That said, I'm happy for Amy Adams picking up that nomination for Junebug. Local girl makes good. I'm very happy that Crash was nominated for Best Picture and even grabbed an acting nod. An excellent movie. Go Philip Seymour Hoffman, great actor getting a lead role.

Keira Knightly was great in Pride and Prejudice, but she's not going to win best actress. My money is on Felicity Huffman, although I have to admit my own bias towards Reese and keira. I really want Joaquin to take best actor, but I think brokeback mountain is going to win it all. *shrug*
