No Oscar Nominations for PJ, Serkis, Shore

Nicely illustrating their conservative cluelessness, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has failed to dish up nominations for Peter Jackson, Andy Serkis, and Howard Shore in the Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Score Oscar categories, respectively. The Best Picture nomination for The Two Towers, and the smallish passle of technical-category nominations, were nice enough, I guess, but the Academy is digging themselves a pretty deep hole. Sigh. They’re just going to have to do their best to dig themselves out of it with next year’s The Return of the King.

    Although I agree that the Academy is indeed clueless, I have to argue their side on this one.

    I saw TT and have about the same opinion as I did for the first one — although it did do a bit better at attaching the audience to the characters, it still didn’t have that *umph*

    I thought Minority Report got fairly mercilessly shafted. Nothing even for visual effects.
