Its an Honor Just to be...

Academy Awards nominations are out today. The Departed is the only best picture nominee I've seen and its the best film I've saw all year, so good pick folks.

Dreamgirls has 3 of the 5 best song nominees. But can they top Its Hard Out Here for a Pimp? I don't think so.

Oh and An Inconvenient Truth got a nomination for best documentary, so there will be a nice political angle to the ceremony this year. And you know how I love that.

Not to burst your bubble, but didn't Jesus Camp also get nominated?

I have seen "Little Miss Sunshine" and "The Queen". "The Queen" was shockingly touching. I say shocking because what American thinks they are going to go all mushy over the Queen of England? "Little Miss Sunshine" was one of the best films I've seen in a long time. I laughed so hard I cried and I left the theater with a more positive view of humanity. I don't think either will win, I have a feeling that "The Departed" will sweep, but I highly suggest "Little Miss Sunshine" for everyone and "The Queen" for closet royalists.
