i want nothing more than for this day to end. it was an absolute bear of a day, one that makes me question the company i work for (which, trust me – does.not.happen.very.often.). honest to god, all i want to do is crawl under my blanket and block out the world.
then to find out that heath ledger died. fuck what a day.
so instead, i’m gonna concentrate on the only good thing that happened today. the oscar nominations came out.
best picture – there is no question on this for me – i’m all about no country for old men.
|no country for old men||x|
|there will be blood|
best actress – hard one for me ’cause i’ve only seen 2 of these films. i loved ellen page in juno, but it’s not her year yet. i’m going sentimental (for me) and giving it to cate in elizabeth 2. yes, the movie sucked, and no she won’t win (see below for the reason), but i love my cate. i hear amazing things about julie cristie & la vie en rose is on my netflix so i might change my mind.
cate blanchett – elizabeth
|julie christie – away from her|
|marioncotillard –la vie en rose|
|laura linney –the savages|
|ellen page – juno|
best actor – no question at all. daniel in there will be blood. brilliant performance,
george clooney –
|daniel day-lewis –there will be blood||x|
|johnny depp –sweeney todd|
|tommy lee jones –in the valley of elah|
|viggo mortensen –eastern promises|
supporting actor – again, no question. javier all the way. (hal holbrook could be a dark horse/sentimental win, but i think it’s javier all the way.
casey affleck –
jesse james/robert ford
|javier bardem – no country for old men||x|
|hal holbrook – into the wild|
|philip seymourhoffman – charlie wilson’s war|
|tom wilkinson – michael clayton|
supporting actress – i’ve not seen gone baby gone or michael clayton, but all signs are pointing to cate(plus the reason she won’t win above is ’cause she’ll win here). i have a glimmer of home for saoirse as well.
|cate blanchett – i’m not there||x|
|ruby dee – american gangster|
|saoirse ronan – atonement|
|amy ryan – gone baby gone|
|tilda swinton – michael clayton|
in the coming weeks i’ll cover off some of the other categories.
but now i’m going to make my self a massivebowl of ice cream then hide under my blanky.
