Oscar Nominees announced. Avatar got 9 nominations! District 9 got 4! Inglorious Basterds got 8. The Hurt Locker got 8 too, never caught that movie yet. Sherlock Holmes nominated for Art Direction and Music. I knew that movie's soundtrack is cool! LOVE THAT LEITMOTIF!! Transformers ROTF only got 1 nomination for Sound Mixing. None for visual effects? Guess the action's too fast to catch the details. Kudos to District 9 for being recognised with groundbreaking film-making. Nom. for film edit, visual, adapted screenplay, and BEST PICTURE! Certainly hope Meryl Streep wins the Best Actress for "Julie & Julia". Apologies for over-tweeting, but it feels good to know that the films I thoroughly enjoyed are nominated for Oscars.
