No love for "Stealth"?

The Oscar nominations were announced this morning and I'm underwhelmed (although far from surprised). Not much appealing to me this year - seems like a lot of This Is How You Should Think movies, rather than films that have artistic merit AND are, oh, say, entertaining. And Walk the Line getting snubbed for Best Picture? Criminal. Matt Dillion gets a nom?! I guess he was okay in Herbie: Fully Loaded. Probably the only movie nominated in a major category that I haven't seen, but probably will before the ceremony is Capote. Maybe.

Do I even need to start a pool in the Year of Brokeback?

Regardless, I'll be watching like I do every year, if only to replicate last year's Oscar night post (232 comments!).

Keira Knightley got a nod, so I'm satisfied.

Yeah, I was kind of surprised to see that. Cute chick. Body of a 12 year old boy. But, cute chick.

I forgot that I won last year. This year I'm betting on Humpback Mountain.

good night was a pretty good movie. and i'm glad i caught it (at an 'art house' that had trailers for Transamerica, Brokeback and maybe six other such 'daring' homosexual movies) but oscar-worthy?

i liked crash, but same.

do want to see munich.

and the animated movies seem like an oasis in the desert of crappy nominations.

not watching. it'll just pi** me off.

Interesting that my comment from last night wouldn't show up.
