Ok all you movie awards fans of the world its that time of the year you get very excited and you start kicking off with fellow movie geeks on should have or should nt have won that, yes its oscars time!!!

about 1.30pm GMT time or 5.30am Los Angeles local time the nominations for the 82nd Oscars awards were announced. Some of the nominations were expected some were I would say shocked not to be in the running and the one that has shocked some people is no nominations for Duncan Jones Moon for best picture or even best actor for Sam Rockwell. I havent seen the movie as I was out the country when it was released but sadly finished its run when I got back but reading magazine, newspapers, other blogs & Website’s all could not stop praising it (hopefully soon I can watch it).

In the Best Director award it was no surprise that James Cameron and Kathryn Bigelow are the favourites but they are up against Jason Reitman and Quinten Tarrantino. I’ve watched Hurt Locker, it is a good film but not my favourite I think I gave it about 3/5 (just a little board of iraq/afghanistan war movies). I dont see Jason Reitman winning but he get the nod in the screenplay award but he is up against Coen Brothers with A serious Man.

As for Mr Tarrantino I think its an achievement for Inglorious Basterds getting a nomination for best movie, maybe been too “violent”, over the top for the judges to give him a wee golden man. I will be shocked if Christoph Waltz doesn’t get the best supporting actor award for Hans Landa in the Basterds, dont expect Brad to be around he’s just been a basterd and is in huff becauses he not got a nomination!

Its nice to see the British/Irish up for nominations and especially nice to see Carey Mulligan in their next to experience actresess like Helen Mirren, Sandra Bullock, Meyrll streep with a role in Education. We must say well done to Gabourey Sidibe for her role in Precious great to see young talent been recognised rather than having to wait a few years down the line before even getting a nod.

Like The Best Director awards it looks Like it’ll be Avatar versus Hurt Locker for the the title though im chuffed District 9 is in their along with Precious, Up In The Air, An Education, Up and Inglorious Basterds.

March 7th is the day when the winners announced and in UK and Ireland i’ll expect Sky Movies to cover the event  live which is a shame as I used to love watching it every year when BBC had it. So remember movie fans, get your munchies in, sit in the dark roll the blanket around you, plus dont forget to call in sick you have an appointment with the tv!

So what do you think of the nominees? do you agree? if yes who are your favourites? If you didnt agree, who do you think got snubbed? tell us what you think. I hope to do something over the next few weeks on the oscar possibly The Peoples oscars, so stay tuned or if you have suggestions get in touch!!!
