Most underwhelming Oscars nominations ever

Read the complete list here. It's probably the least satisfying Academy Awards nominees list that I've ever seen. I just can't believe what didn't get nominated though. Walk The Line got snubbed for Best Picture. In a perfect world King Kong and Batman Begins would be up for consideration too. Horribly absent is Ian McDiarmid for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. In fact Sith only got one nomination - for Achievement in Makeup - and was totally dissed for Achievement in Visual Effects (but War of the Worlds got that, what the...?!). Heck, John Williams's score for Sith should have been nominated too. This list may appeal to some in the liberal-and-proud-of-it arts & croissants crowd, but not me. Just plain blah. My prediction: way too many politically-charged speeches - that no one who has a life will really care for - during this year's awards ceremony.
