Oscars 2007

Nominations are out! I've held off on making my best of 2006 list for movies because I haven't seen everything from last year that I wanted to see.

So far, I have seen the following Oscar nominees: The Pursuit of Happyness (Best Actor), The Queen (Best Actress, Best Director, Best Film, Best Original Screenplay, and others), and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (Art Direction, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects). This is a pathetically small list! I am hoping to see The Departed, Little Miss Sunshine, Dreamgirls, and perhaps Letters from Iwo Jima before the ceremony. I also sort of want to see Blood Diamond (though I've heard the film is only so-so; it's apparently a case of good acting in an average movie) and United 93 (if I can stomach that).

Dreamgirls is fantastic. I usually don't go for big budget movies featuring Beyonce singing, but Dreamgirls was really exceptional. Go see it as soon as you can!

I feel totally behind on the nominated movies! I don't think I've seen any of them yet!

I am planning to see Dreamgirls this Sunday. Thanks for the recommendation!

Little Miss Sunshine is excellent!!

And yes, I think Phase 10 is even worse than Mao/Mo.
