Academy in ‘getting nominations right’ shock

Good on the Academy for recognising two of the best performances of last year with Oscar nominations: Casey Affleck in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Saoirse Ronan in Atonement. The only disappointment for me would be that they are both demoted to ‘supporting’ nods, when really they are both the pivotal characters in the two films.

Still, at least Keira Knightley got overlooked, thank god.

Bags’ psychic predictions:

Best Picture: No Country for Old Men
Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis
Best Actress: Marion Cotillard
Supporting Actor: Javier Bardem
Supporting Actress: Cate Blanchett
Best Director: Joel and Ethan Coen
Adapted Screenplay: Chistopher Hampton, for Atonement
