BIG win for Anne Hathaway!! ~~ and Meryl Streep. I mean, not such a big win for Meryl ‘coz she’s got a gazillion awards, but it was BIG for Anne… and her speech, I liked that it was mostly not about her. LOL’ And she was emotional… major points for an Oscar win. An Oscar win should bring her to tears… no? Oscar loves that, right? Emotional Best Actress…

I got 12/16, pretty amazing~~ Slumdog Millionaire won BIG too., including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Writing, Best Young Actor, and Best Composer (aka, Best Score). Not sure about the score win, but oh well. Also… BIG loss for Benjamin Button.

Other winners… Milk for Best Ensemble and Best Actor, The Dark Knight for Best Supporting Actor, Best Action Movie.  And Kate Winslet for The Reader, which I haven’t seen yet~~ For the winners, go here.

, but need to share this. LOL’

SAG Nominations 2009!

December 19, 2008 — Leave a comment

Sorry for the late LATE post. I’ve been watching WALL-E for the 5th time… LOL – Special 3-disc DVD edition is pretty cool. Totally worth it if you’re an animation/film fan… maybe not so much as a family DVD.

Nominations weren’t much of a surprise though, were they? Perhaps biggest snub, Leonardo DiCaprio? And DOUBLE nom for Kate Winslet!! LOL Big announcement for Doubt with 5 nominations, leading… followed by Milk and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with 3 nods. exclamation!! And The Dark Knight, Frost/Nixon and Slumdog Milionaire with 2.

On the television front… 5 shows lead with 3 nominations (30 Rock included…), and 7 follow with 2 nominations (including House, Dexter and Weeds). Check the full nominees here.

SAG will be announced on Jan. 25th 2009 on TNT.

Well… during the past week, every time I’d wake up, there’d be another award nomination announced. Beginning of last week, it began with the Spirit Awards, then Grammy nominations

Then there’s the interminable Top10 Films list around… then there was the National Board of Review’s announcement~ They named Slumdog Millionaire as best film, and included Let the Right One In as one of the Top5 Foreign Films…

Apparently the Satellite Awards nominees were announced on Nov30 –

Today, the Critics’ Choice Nominations were in – There’s a lot of love for Milk, and Benjamin Button… which will probably lead through award season, including Academy Awards. There’s also a lot of love for Anne Hathaway, who will possibly include an Oscar nod for Best Actress. Love for Meryl Streep in Doubt, as well… but apprently no love for Kate Winslet, who was a favorite of many award sites throughout the year as Best Actress for Revolutionary Road, but no love for the film in any of the previously mentioned awards.

There is also love for Let the Right One In, that appears in various lists as either Top Foreign Film, or Top Films of the Year…. I must get the DVD as soon as it’s out.

inside the gold’s following of Nine made me wonder…

Yes, Nine will have a pretty heavy list of credits when the trailer comes out. You can just imagine…

Nine… starring

Double Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis, Academy Award Winner Marion Cotillard, Academy Award Winner Judi Dench, Academy Award Winner Sophia Loren, Academy Award Winner Nicole Kidman, Academy Award Nominee Penelope Cruz
Directed by Academy Award Winner Rob Marshall.

Which made me, and other people, wonder if there had been other heavily Oscar Winner projects. I can’t really think of anything at the top of my head, but I was checking IMDb (and got side-tracked a little), and I didn’t come up with anything. Hahahaha.

From just trailers, I thought Burn After Reading did a pretty filled Academy Award credited film. Let’s see… I had to check some of the credits, but I don’t think it does as Oscar-studded as Nine. Here goes~~

Burn After Reading starring…

Academy Award Winner George Clooney, Academy Award Winner Tilda Swinton, Academy Award Winner Frances McDormand, Academy Award Nominee Brad Pitt, Academy Award Nominee John Malkovich

Written and directed by Academy Award Winners Ethan and Joel Coen.

I could even stretch this a WHOLE lot more and say Cold Mountain was pretty Oscar-studded. LOL. Considering some of the actors earned their nominations and winnings after the film xD. Check this out…

Cold Mountain starring…

Academy Award Winner Nicole Kidman, Academy Award Winner Renee Zellweger, Academy Award Winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, Academy Award Nominee Jude Law, Academy Award Nominee Natalie Portman.

Directed by Academy Award Winner Anthony Minghella

Have you got any project that is Oscar-studded??
