Oscar Nominations Announced!
And it's a good year for...

22 January 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

The 81st Academy Awards nominations were announced moments ago in Los Angeles by Forest Whitaker, and there were a few surprises among the nominees. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button landed most nominations overall, with 13, followed by Slumdog Millionaire with 10. The Dark Knight and Milk landed eight each, the former largely in the technical categories. Behind them, with five apiece, were The Reader, Frost/Nixon, Doubt and Wall-E.

Best Picture nominees were The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon, Milk, The Reader and Slumdog Millionaire. The Best Director nominees - as is often the case at Oscar time - exactly matched the Best Picture nominees with, respectively, nods for David Fincher, Ron Howard, Gus Van Sant, Stephen Daldry and Danny Boyle.

Best Actress had surprises - Melissa Leo for Frozen River got a surprise nod (and there was another for that film's Best Original Screenplay), while Kate Winslet was nominated for The Reader rather than Revolutionary Road. Both Anne Hathaway for Rachel Getting Married and Angelina Jolie for Changeling were nominated too, keeping the star quotient high. Best Actor went more to form, with nods for Brad Pitt, Mickey Rourke, Sean Penn and Frank Langella, except for Richard Jenkins' welcome surprise nod for The Visitor.

The Supporting Actress nominations were much as expected, largely reflecting the Golden Globes nominees - except for the omission of Kate Winslet for The Reader since she'd moved to Best Actress here. The Supporting Actor nods had fewer surprises, except for the inclusion of Michael Shannon in Revolutionary Road, but fear not, Bat-fans: the expected Heath Ledger nod is present and correct.

Best Foreign Film saw nods for The Baader Meinhoff Complex and Waltz with Bashir, which came as a relief to a category that has been beset by controversial omissions of great films in recent years. Best Animated Film saw three nods, for Bolt, Kung Fu Panda and of course Wall-E, which also got a nod for Best Original Screenplay.

Original Song
Why are there only 3 nominees this year? Weren't there 5 last year? I definately thought that Springsteen's The Wrestler deserved a nod, its a great song. I'd also like to express my disappointment that Wall-E didnt get the Best Picture nomination. The Reader is certainly this years Micheal Clayton; ok, but nothing to write to France about. It's only because it's clearly aimed at the Oscars that it got a nomination, which is a disappointing notion. More

WALL-E is brilliant!
WALL-E is a great film its not your typical pixar film and I think a mistake is made by trying to make up for that a bit to much in the second half by making it a bit too pixar but naverthe less is a great film and the whole not just the first thirty minutes this is just an opinion but i dont think that previous comments do the film justice i completely disagree that WALL-E becomes boring as he is the only character that is consistent throughout and we never lose sight of him.

RE: Brad Pitt
I'm not so sure. The academy tend not to give oscars to those "hollywood leading men" ie Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, et al despite the high quality of their acting abilities preferring a more obscure choice than an obvious one (which just seems unfair). I find the oscars irritating because the outcomes are so predictable year in year out (partly due to this reason that they don't reward these actors as they are popular, good looking, etc despite how brilliant they als More

Is the award not called "Best Picture"???
A lot of things are upsetting me about the oscars this year. First off, I believe its called Best Picture right??? So i would assume that the best picture would win, not the best drama. I love The Dark Knight and i would like to have seen it get nominated, but I think the award should of gone to WALL-E. Its a shame that an animated film cant get the same recognition as a live action one. Its also a dissapointment to see Chris Nolan not get nominated for directing/writing.

TDK - getting what it deserves
I know TDK is loved by many on here but I think it's getting the Oscar nods it deserves. Nolan is a fantastic director but TDK is NOT as great as everyone is making it out to be and certainly not deserving of a Best Film nomination. It flagged severely towards the end and just can not stand up to the likes of Milk or Frost/Nixon. Heath has got the nomination he deserves and the film's technical aspects have quite rightly been nominated (although I do agree the score not being included is rather More

RE: Pull the reader out, stick the wrestler in!
Did people t was likely that TDK would get a Best Picture nod? It did get great reviews, but that was because it was a classy and unusual ero flick, was against its peers in that genre that it was being judged. Spider-man 2 got similarly great reviews but I don't recall people getting all stoked up about that not getting a Best Picture nomination.   I didn't enjoy it much personally but TDK is clearly one of the best of its genre, and possibly Chris Nolan deserves a nom for doing somet More

RE: Supporting Actor
I didn't think TDK would win best picture and Nolan win best director. The Nominators always go for the dramas but I expect them to nominate both TDK and Nolan for these awards. It's a very good film and Nolan is a fantastic director. However I lost my faith in the Oscars when Departed won several awards. It's a remake and did Infernal Affairs win any? Not to my knowledge.

somethngs never change...... when will popular entertainment be recognised at these worthy pat-on-the-back shows? TDK not only boasts one the most engaging performances of the past decade in Ledger's Joker, but some of the most thoughtful and visionary direction under Chris Nolan...... at least its being represented in the tech catergories. Surely, Wall-E should be up for best picture full stop. RDJ is good news....... but enough with rewarding juvenile naval gazing - i'm talking to you Aronofos More

You would have thought the fact that there probably isn't a single bad review of the film would get it in.

Living or dead, he completely deserves the nod.

Inconsistent Nominations.
Nolan's direction and script were not nominated because TDK would have to be there for best film. It seems evident we have to swallow anything by Horward or with Penn in it every single year. I hate that post-electoral patriotist partialism and their obsession on drama. The Dark Knight has a brilliant script, direction, cast, music and 8 other nominations. I think this means it is a VERY GOOD SHOULD-BE-NOMINATED-FOR-BEST-FILM!!! It simply is an inconsistent decision. More

Solid Noms
There are a few gripes in this list (The Reader Best Film?) but all in all it is pretty good. For me either The Wrestler or The Dark Knight should have been in the best picture category and Downey Jr. shouldn't be nominated but other than that all is well. As much as people will say that Ledger will win because of the pity vote I disagree, I honestly have not seen a better supporting role in a film over the last year. The closest for me is Brolin in Milk but even he doesn't compare. More

Heath Ledger isn't just "acting mental", there's a hell of a lot more going on in the performance than that.  Throughout the film you can see the Joker figuring out the best way to push people's buttons, searching for the right things to do/say to get the right reactions from other characters.  At one point he's like an electrified Ratso Rizzo, the next he's imposing and awe-inspiring.   Javier Bardem's performance in NCFOM, whilst I am a big fan of it, is far flatter than Le More

No music score nom for The Dark Knight? Shame on them. Hellboy 2 should have got a nod for visual effects as well as makeup. Also predict Kate Winslet will come away empty handed, (undeservedly) they've already avoided giving her 2 noms which (my opinion) would have virtually guaranteed her the win. Can see the actress gong going to Jolie. And how about Pitt for the actor award (my vote goes to Rourke) to get a publicity friendly married couple win double! ....Cynical head now disengaged! More

With the shame of Nolan not being nominated I hope that his technical right hand man Wally Phitser wins in the cinematography category.
