And the nominations and winners continue, this time with the Chicago Critics’ nominations (and tomorrow with the SAG nominations). It is a busy time.

Leading the nominees with six is one of the many awards favorites, Jason Reitman’s Up In The Air. But hold on just a moment. It has a co-pilot. Also riding a wave of six nominations is Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are,

Joining both films in the Best Picture race from Chicago are Kathryn Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker, Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds (each with five nominations) and Joel & Ethan Coen’s A Serious Man with 4.

some nice changes and surprises!
check the nominees!

Nominations are in! Just with a quick look, I’ve only seen 60% of the nominees, so I’m excited to see the rest. Looking good for some of those peoples there. Not really big surprises, except for a couple double nominations  and one double nomination in a category… and some new names in the Foreign category.

My scandalous and ironic side says Peruvians will hate Chile even more (for unnecessary issues) – dearest The Milk of Sorrow didn’t make it to the list.

Also! Jumpy claps for Glee!! and Jumpy bloody hands for Dexter!!

More nominations. Are you keeping up?

These nominations seem like a pretty random bunch. Especially considering Nine has had little to no love until now… with 10 nominations (a big WEEEE for Marion!!), and also finally some love true for Inglourious Basterds~

Also, is everything supposed to be American because it’s the AFI?

Say what?

I’m really pissed right now.

The Annie Awards (that’s the best animation awards) just announced their nominees, included for Best Animated Feature are, of course:

  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
  • Coraline
  • Fantastic Mr. Fox
  • The Princess and the Frog
  • The Secret of Kells
  • Up

Yup. That’s it. Say WHAT? Where’s Mary and Max?

You mean to tell me that THE best animated film of the year doesn’t get recognition from its own medium? Yeah, whatever. These are the awards that declared Kung Fu Panda better than WALL-E, so maybe we should be talking about actual technical animation than actual film.

The whole list of nominees is here.
