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
