Oscar Stuff

Today the Oscar nominations came out, I will list all the nominations for all the important categories, plus my pick in bold. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button lead all films with 13 nominations, but the sleeper movie of the year Slumdog Millionaire came in strong with 10 nominations in its own right. Surprisingly, a less critically acclaimed and less hyped movie The Reader (a movie I didn't see, hence no link to a review) crept it's way into top picture honors, beating out the likes of The Dark Knight, Gran Torino, and The Wrestler.
