And the Oscar nominees are ...
Yay for District 9. Yay for Jeff Bridges! Yay for Woody Harrelson. Go Kathryn Bigelow! And there's a double nod for Up! Maggie Gyllenhaal is a bit of a surprise. As was The Blind Side for best picture. And Star Trek was robbed! And Anna Kendrick's nod for Up In The Air means that a Twilight cast member got nominated. Which is really bleeped up. Leading the nominations pack are Hurt Locker and Avatar with nine nods each. We're going to be reading so many stories about ex vs. ex and how Bigelow and Cameron get along and blah-blah. I feel tired already.
