The Nominees Will Be...

Oscar nominations will be announced on Thursday and I started my latest OscarBlog series on my blog over at MySpace, beginning with the acting categories. You can click on "Garney" in the Approved Time Wasters section on the left or just click here to read what I have to say on the subject, as well as who I think should get nominated.

For those who are only interested in the list of predictions, here they are:

ACTOR
Clint Eastwood "Gran Torino"
Richard Jenkins "The Visitor"
Frank Langella "Frost/Nixon"
Sean Penn "Milk"
Mickey Rourke "The Wrestler"

ACTRESS
Anne Hathaway "Rachel Getting Married"
Sally Hawkins "Happy-Go-Lucky"
Angelina Jolie "Changeling"
Meryl Streep "Doubt"
Kate Winslet "Revolutionary Road"

SUPPORTING ACTOR
Josh Brolin "Milk"
Robert Downey Jr. "Tropic Thunder"
Philip Seymour Hoffman "Doubt"
Heath Ledger "The Dark Knight"
Dev Patel "Slumdog Millionaire"

SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Amy Adams "Doubt"
Penelope Cruz "Vicky Cristina Barcelona"
Viola Davis "Doubt"
Marisa Tomei "The Wrestler"
Kate Winslet "The Reader"

I hope you do take the time to check out the full blog though because I really did spend more time on it than I should have.

I saw Benjamin Button yesterday, and while I thought the film was OK-not-great, I think Brad Pitt will/should get a nod. I was impressed.

Does it mean I'm sexist since I've seen almost all of the possible male nominees and only one of the females?
