An OTFer's flatmate's Dad has just been nominated, though I'm not certain for what.

In possibly related news, though, that unbearable cunt Glen Hansard is going to be even more unbearable and cuntish now.

Good to see No End In Sight nominated: it's fantastic. And it's on More4 tonight.

Bit surprised that Michael Clayton got nominated for Best Picture. I think some were thinking that Ratatouille had a shot at that, and not just "settling" for Best Animated Film.

I was hoping that "Knocked Up" would get a best screenplay nod--since there are two categories, films that aren't contenders for the big awards sometimes have a shot at a nomination there.

I haven't seen Michael Clayton, or the Diving Bell one.

I'm disappointed that Into the Wild was largely overlooked and I agree that Ratatouille should have been nominated for Best Picture.

Why do they only nominate three films in the animation category? There are more than that that deserve a mention, I think.

Ryan Gosling deserved a nomination for Lars And The Real Girl.

Michael Clayton, although pretty, is a very dull film. Surprised it got so many nominations.

I don't think Ratatouille deserves a best film nomination. I enjoyed it but it's not a patch on, for example, No Country...

Agreed - Michael Clayton only just about kept my attention from wandering, and I thought Clooney was ill-suited to his role. Tom Wilkinson was pretty good in it though.

Bit of a shocker that 4 months, 3 weeks, 2 days didn't get nominated in the foreign language category. It won pretty much every other award this year, and while it didn't in a Golden Globe it did get nominated.

How the fuck is Javier Bardem classed as a supporting actor? He's in every other scene! He's on screen longer than anybody else in the movie, apart from Josh Brolin (and there wouldn't be too much in it).

I thought Clooney was pretty good in Michael Clayton. Played it coolly, but I thought it worked well for the picture.

Surprised I've actually seen 3 of the 5 nominations for best picture this year. Must be doing better keeping up with Hollywood.

I finally got to see Michael Clayton last night. I thought it was excellent. It was a bit more standard potboiler than I expected, but the acting and the characters were very well done. It also reaffirmed my decision not to go to law school, which is nice.
