Oscar nominations announced!

Oscar nominations came in this morning, and there really weren't any big surprises there. I'm glad to see the underlooked 'Michael Clayton' getting a nod for Best pic and Best Actor, both very well deserved. Congratulations to Cate Blanchett as well for two nominations for Best Actress ("Elizabeth: The Golden Age") and Best Supporting Actress ("I'm Not There"). Look for box office bumps for "Atonement," "Juno" and "There Will Be Blood."

I'm also happy to report that two of the films I worked on last year, "Ratatouille" and "The Golden Compass" landed a few noms, including Best Animated Feature for 'Rat' and Best Visual Effects for 'Golden Compass'.

did Jones get a nod for best supporting? Here's the list I have for that category:

4. Supporting Actor: Casey Affleck, "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford"; Javier Bardem, "No Country for Old Men"; Hal Holbrook, "Into the Wild"; Philip Seymour Hoffman, "Charlie Wilson's War"; Tom Wilkinson, "Michael Clayton."

Hey goldstar, you're absolutely right! The list I pulled from incorrectly states Jones for Best Supporting Actor in 'No Country' as well, but that is not the case. I've corrected it in the post. Thanks for picking up on that one!
