question of the day: What are your thoughts on the Oscar nominations?

The nominees for the 81st annual Academy Awards were announced this morning — get the full list here.

What are your thoughts on the Oscar nominations?

I’m stunned that I’m not stunned by any of the nominations. Usually there’s at least one outlier that makes you go, What? Really? And the only nomination that comes even close is Melissa Leo for Best Actress for Frozen River. Not that she doesn’t deserve it — I’m just a bit surprised that she wasn’t forgotten.

But the rest of the nominations? It’s yet another year in which the Oscars play it safe… and there’s nothing surprising about that at all.
