oh those early oscar nominations!
January 23, 2007 MICHAEL KNUDSEN



hey hey boys & girls! it’s way too early here in los angeles but the oscar nominations are out! i was right…beyonce got shut out of the running – even though dreamgirls received eight nominations but no nods for ms. knowles or for director bill condon plus it wasn’t included amongst the best picture nominees! babel came in second with seven nominations followed closely by the queen & pan’s labyrinth which both got six! i don’t know what the big deal over notes on a scandal is – i hated the film! (both dench & blanchett got acting nods for it) anyways i’m heading back to bed for a little bit! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo!
