And the nominees are…

The Oscars air next Sunday (March 7) at 7PM Central on ABC.  Needless to say, the entertainment world is all a-twitter, and most people seem to think the big duel of the evening will be between James Cameron and Avatar vs Kathryn Bigelow and The Hurt Locker.

The question on everyone’s mind is will this be the first year a female director is honored with one of the highest directing awards?  With the new 10 Best Picture nominees, it’s really anyone game.  With more films to divide the votes, I wouldn’t be surprised if neither of the front runners win.

Over the next week, I plan to see as many of the nominated films as I can get a hold on here in Scotland, but in the mean time, visit Oscar.com and leave a comment with your predictions, preferences, and if you’d like to see any of the films at this year’s series.
