The nominations for the 80th Annual Academy Awards were announced this morning. It’s a big day for a little movie called Juno – it garnered a Best Picture nom, Halifax’s own Ellen Page is up for Best Actress, its Montreal-born director Jason Reitman is up for Best Director, and its stripper-turned-screenwriter Diablo Cody is the favourite to win Best Original Screenplay.
This year’s list of nominees is impressive. I’m not sure how I’m going to choose my list of winners. It’s really up in the air in a lot of categories. First step – seeing as many of the nominated films as I can… stay tuned for Oscar picks, and eventually the winner’s list.
The show airs on Sunday, February 24th at 9pm.
