The Oscars

The nominations turned out better than I could have expected. Dreamgirls was not nominated for best picture or best director (though it led with eight nominations, mostly technical). Little Miss Sunshine, though unfortunately unnominated for best director, was nominated for best picture, best original screenplay, best supporting actress for Abigail Breslin, and best supporting actor for Alan Arkin. And The Departed got a full slate of nominations: best picture, best director, best adapted screenplay, best film editing, and best supporting actor (Mark Wahlberg). Very, very well done, Academy.
P.S. Dana Stevens – that Volver wasn’t nominated for best foreign film is a feature, not a bug. Sorry, Pedro, but ripping off the entire premise of Chinatown is just tacky.
