Oscar Noms


The academy awards nominees are out, and as usual I'm not particularly impressed (holding back yawn.)

Here's a Rhapsody Playlist of musical nominees, both song and score highlights. (Tracklisting here.)

The big snub in my mind here is Jon Brion's I Heart Huckabees and, for that matter, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Highway freakin' robbery. Ok, maybe a funky cobblestone street mugging. Here's a Rhapsody playlist w/ highlights from both. Most will point to Howard Shore's score for The Aviator, since it won the Golden Globe, but... (almost yawned again.)

The Aviator predictably got the most nominations (11) with this being Harvey Weinstein's last 'start to finish' picture with Miramax. He's putting all his (considerable) weight behind it.

Sideways got some accolades (4 noms,) but noticeably missing was Paul Giamatti. The humanity! Yawn...
