Nominations!

Oscar nominations are up (or will be, give 'em a few moments).

Oh, wow, Cate Blanchett did get two nominations--I was not terribly impressed with The Golden Age in any objective sense. I mean, hell, I will be there on DVD release day with bells on, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a total melodrama. Yay for Tilda Swinton, even if I totally don't get the fuss over Michael Clayton! No nomination for Keira Knightley--Ellen Page got her slot. Best Actor was fun--Johnny Depp! Viggo Mortensen! Surprise nomination for Tommy Lee Jones! Even though they could totally just give it to Daniel Day-Lewis right now and cut an hour off the show that may or may not happen! Best Sarah Polley for Best Adapted Screenplay! Atonement snuck in for Best Picture after people thought it was out, but Sweeney Todd didn't make it in; the other two were Juno and Michael Clayton, because No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood were kind of obvious. (You know, it's terrible of me to say this, but I was kind of hoping that one of The Big Undeniable Nominations would get left out just to hear people shriek about it. Am I a terrible person?)

I can't find a full list of nominations up yet--I'm dying to know who got costumes. Hurry up and post, people!


ETA: FINALLY. Sweeney Todd, The Golden Age and Atonement for costume! Sweeney Todd and Golden Compass for Art Direction! Pirates and Golden Compass for Visual Effects! Michael Giacchino, he of the Monster Opera, for Best Score (for Ratatouille, that is)! Three Best Song nominations for Enchanted!
