The nominations for this year’s Academy Awards are out [complete list]. I am especially thrilled that my favorite movie of 2006, Little Miss Sunshine, got four nominations, one of them for Best Picture. But I doubt that it will win that category because indie productions never get a Best Picture Oscar. An award for Best Original Screenplay is far more likely.
The rest of the nominations are not very surprising. The Golden Globes really do foretell something.
The Simpsons Movie will come out at the end of July. There was a very, very short teaser trailer up on Apple – Trailers for about a year, but now there are two longer ones as well (one & two; number two is fucking hilarious). I am a little disappointed about the apparent computer enhancement, though, and I am not talking about the joke at the beginning of the two trailers. But as long as the humor can make up for the semi-CGI production I will be happy, I guess.
