Relevant Oscar Nominations - Short Recap

I'll admit it, I don't see many "Oscar worthy" movies throughout the year. But it seems like quite a few sci fi/fantasy movies are getting Oscar nods this year. Keep an eye on these (major categories only)!

Best Picture:
Avatar, District 9, Up

Best Director:
James Cameron (Avatar), Quentin Tarantino (Inglorious Basterds)

Best Animated Feature:
Coraline, Fantastic Mr Fox, The Princess and The Frog, The Secret of Kells (?), and Up

Best Original Screenplay:
Inglorious Basterds, Up

Best Cinematography:

I better at least get caught up on these ones so I'm up on the water-cooler talk!

  1. The Secret of Kells is apparently not about the bar. It looks cool, but is supposed to be dull. Honestly, my favorite from that list, is Star Trek.
