Of course, you aren't reading the news on this blog first, but who said being late was a bad thing? I'm still trying to get my best of 2009 ready! So many afterthought, so little time...
Barreling through the nominations I have these conclusions:
Ten Best Picture nominees was a positively horrid and awful awful awful idea. The Blind Side...?
Sandra Bullock...? No thanks. Carey Mulligan? Thank you very much!
Best Actor/Supporting Actor had zero surprises. Boring. Good job Christopher Plummer!
Penelope Cruz over Marion Cotillard? Damn Weinsteins and their stupid campaigning process that tried to get Marion for lead.
Maggie Gyllenhaal, thanks for being a surprise. Anna Kendrick, please try and win this category! It seems rather impossible to beat Mo'Nique though, but we can pray.
No (500) Days of Summer? This sucks.
