The Oscar nominations were announced this morning, as usual too early for anyone who likes a decent sleep. Wall-E has been nominated for Best Screenplay, which though mostly dialogueless is an extremely worthy nomination.

Waltz With Bashir has been nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.

The Academy has played it safe with the nomination of Bolt, Kung Fu Panda, and Wall-E in the Best Animated Film category. They are all great films, but I expect no upsets in that category. There seem to be some great choices that are not in the running.

Really a shame that Sky Crawlers wasn't acknowledged. Wall-e and Bolt were good movies, but not as memorable as The Sky Crawlers.

Kung Fu Panda? Eh.
