As per the usual, I've seen very few of the nominated (for anything) films. so my reactions are pretty limited. As in:
- Really would have liked to see WALL-E get a Best Picture nomination, and find it a little cliche that the surprise nominee is a Holocaust film.
- I haven't seen The Changeling, but find myself very much doubting Angelina Jolie deserves a nomination.
- Very nice to see Robeert Downey Jr. and Heath Ledger nominated as Best Supporting Actor. Not sure who is better, frankly.
- Thrilled to see WALL-E get screenplay, score, and song love.
- One day I will understand the difference between Sound Editing and Sound Mixing. That day is not today.
- Only three Song nominees? What's up with that? As has been noted elsewhere, Jason Segel deserved a nod for his Dracula song from Sarah Marshall, at the least.
- I did not know that Danny Elfman scored Milk. Am very curious to hear that.
- Why do Special Effects and Makeup always have three nominees only?
