Cause of glee
: Laura Linney for The Savages. Having been snubbed at basically every single awards precursor, I had begun to accept that Linney would not be getting her third nomination. But hey, my griping was NOT all for naught! The only tinge of sadness comes from the fact that Angelina Jolie didn't get in for A Mighty Heart, which I loved.
Cause of glum: I know it was a long, long shot that Todd Hayne's would recieve a nomination for I'm Not There, but the slight possibility was always in the back of my mind. Other inevitable lock-outs included Gabriel Byrne for Jindabyne and Kate Bush's original song.
Still fuming: Jonny Greenwood. Argh.
Source of nationalist pride: Ireland's claiming four nominees: the song from Once, Daniel Day Lewis,
cinematographer Séamus McGarvey and, of course, Saoirse Ronan.
Source of nationalist distain: Saoirse Ronan is really not that hard to pronounce. Neither is Marion Cotillard, mind you.
Qu'est ce-que? Three songs from Enchanted? Really? "That's How You Know" is the only one that's been in my head at all since I saw the film. That would have been enough, I think (leaving room for Kate. Voilá!)

I'm officially declaring myself Team Affleck, Linney and Coen. The rest I still have to see/decide on.

Yep, of course, have read these all on Emma's. ;-) I really want Atonement to win Best Film (saw Juno, loved it, but don't think it will win; NCFOM probably will, which I've seen; well done but didn't appeal as much); if not, it most definately should win Adapted Screenply and Cinematography. Hope Juno wins Best Original Screenplay. Haven't seen many others on the list.

Normally I'll have seen some of the movies but this year I haven't seen any of the major ones, though I really want to. Actually the only one I've seen that's in what most people would consider a main category is Sweeney Todd. That kinda makes me sad.

You've been crazy busy though, with college and working and having a life and all. I have no life, so I've seen a good number of them. Excepting the ones that haven't opened here yet, I only missed American Gangster, Atonement, Eastern Promises and Into The Wild.
