    I don't have time to read the list. How many nominations did Good Luck Chuck get?

    I've actually seen all the best picture nominations this year. My favorite from an entertainment stand point was Michael Clayton. That is just a sweet movie, but I don't think it will win. Daniel Day Lewis will win best actor for There Will Be Blood, but it won't win best movie. Atonement is excellent and is my pick. No Country For Old Men I hated and I will be really pissed if it wins.

    Nothing for 3:10 to Yuma and one for American Gangster. Rough, Denzell Washington should've been nominated for Best Actor for his role in that movie, and the movie itself should've been nominated for Best Picture...
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    I think it suffered from being a similar move to The Departed and not nearly as good.

    3:10 to Yuma is a good movie, but its not an award type movie. It was a really good western, but nothing below the surface really.

    Really? I am not sure I haven't seen a better movie since Children of Men. I thought it was absolutely fantastic. As one of my friends said, "I just didn't want it to end."

    Saw No Country For Old Men last night.

    Great movie for 75%, but the last 25% was frustrating.

    I think may need to read the book to understand the whole point.

    I have heard several really interesting interpretations of No Country for Old Men and all of them seemed very valid. That, to me, is the mark of great art.

    I thought it was a beautifully done film. I was just shocked by the ending, as it left me waiting for more. I don't need happy endings, I was just sort of confused by it.

    It will be one that I'll have to watch again and, like I said, maybe read the book.

    The book is absolutely fantastic, IMO. The character of the sheriff is extremely well written.

    I assume he had a much larger role in the book, right? I guess that's what confused me with the movie. The story is really about him, but you really don't get deep into his character until the end.

    Once again, the cinematic genius which is Larry The Cable guy is denied.

    As usual, I haven't seen a single movie that was nominated. In fact I haven't even heard of the majority of them. But I did get a chuckle out of the fact that Norbit received a nomination.
