The Oscar nominees are out today.

Best Picture is between Finding Neverland, The Aviator, Million Dollar Baby, Ray and...though it makes me gag to have to say it, Sideways.

Sideways. My number one worst movie of 2004. It does just figure, doesn't it? There haven't been so many movies I've actively hated as much as that movie about w(h)ine...so of course it needs to go get a Best Picture nom. Of course. Although, not bad...I have been meaning to see both Ray and Million Dollar Baby, the two I haven't seen yet.

I am kind of pleased that "Accidentally in Love" got a Best Song nomination, sad that they only nominated three movies for Best Animated (when Team America and Polar Express could have easily been tossed in there, too), intrigued that SuperSize Me got nominated for Best Docco but Fahrenheit 9/11 didn't, and impressed that Jamie Foxx got nominated for both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor - has that ever happened before?

But Sideways...please. I never thought I'd say it, but I miss the hobbits.

Well, my guess is that not only is it a matter of arrogance, but also that he didn't consider it a "documentary" as much as an "opinion piece". Or maybe he really wanted Supersize Me to win.

I'm just disappointed that The Incredibles didn't get nominated for BP or Brad Bird for Director.
