Oscar nominations

Just a couple of thoughts on this, as there is little that reflects my tastes. Ho, hum. Grumble.

But I am glad to see two nominations for Sarah Polley's Away from Her, previously reviewed here. One for Polley for best adapted screenplay and one for Julie Christie, brilliant in the lead role. Maybe a few more people will go see this small, subtle and beutifully crafted film about people, not explosions.

And well done to Cate Blanchett, a double nominee, with Best Actress for Elizabeth: the Golden Age and Best Supporting Actress for I'm Not There. Queen Elizabeth I and Bob Dylan: now that's what I call range!
