oscar nominations are out, and for the first time in a while i've seen all five best-picture nominees. in fact, i saw them all in the theatre.

thank you, thank you all. thank you to the academy. thank you especially to dan blim, without whose help i never would have seen all these movies.

however: if master and commander wins, i'm gonna eat my hat.

i'm incredibly excited about the possibility that bill murray could win best actor. he deserves it, in that field, despite sean penn's performance in mystic river.

here endeth my bout of film criticism.
