Three Out of Five Ain't Bad

The Oscar nominees are here.

I reached with King Kong, obviously, but I thought there would be enough leftover love for Peter Jackson that it would get a nomination. I'm a bit more surprised that Walk the Line wasn't nominated. I figured Hoffman would be nominated, but Capote wouldn't. They both were. And Crash is an interesting choice to round out Best Picture.

It's sad but predictable to see comedy undervalued yet again. Catherine Keener gets a nod for Capote, but she was better in -- and more integral to -- The 40-Year-Old Virgin.

Amy Adams got recognized for Junebug. Yippee.

No real surprises here with these nominations this year. I guess the big question will be whether the Academy feels the Brokeback Love and gives it most of the biggies, or will nominating it a ton be enough. The Best picture race seems to be between Brokeback and Crash. Best Actor is tough between Hoffman and Phoenix. Anyway, Oscar Pool info to come soon.
