Oscar Nominations

By admin Published: February 2, 2010

You can find the complete list by category here. If you want to look at nominations by movie, that's here.

From my immediate kneejerk Twitter/FB reaction: "Happy includes: G Sidibe, J Renner, Up in the Air, Up, Mo'Nique, Christoph Waltz, In the Loop. But D9 stole Star Trek's best pic nom." I should also note "The Hurt Locker."

Do I get to pick the winners? No, but I lean toward "The Hurt Locker" as best pic but would be fine with a win by "Up in the Air" (Walter Kirn!) or "Precious." Also, "D9" and "Up" over "Avatar," which I would give a zillion tech awards but not best pic or best director. (Interesting to see it nominated in those categories but not for writing or acting.) Kathryn Bigelow for best director. Actor: I go Renner or Clooney over Bridges. Actress: Can see the appeal of Bullock, but Streep is always brilliant and Sidibe was marvelous. Supporting actor: Waltz, easy. (And what is Matt Damon doing in that category for "Invictus"? Good performance but he's a co-lead.) Supporting actress: Mo'Nique, with Anna Kendrick as the runner-up.
