Oscar nominations

They're in.And I have the same reaction I have every year.

I love it. I love the Oscars and yet I never see the movies. I don't typically go for the same movies that the Academy Awards do, namely historical pics and tearjerkers.

So I always root for the underdog; the few movies I've actually seen. The year "Return of the King" won everything was the year for me. That's why I'm delighted "LIttle Miss Sunshine" got the nod. As a small, quirky comedy this is beyond expectation. And beyond any hope of winning.

I'm also throwing my vote in for "Pan's Labryinth" and "Sands of Iwo Jima". Not because I've seen them, but because I've loved other films from these directors.

God bless the uninformed vote.
