The full list can be found lots of places, try here if you are having trouble finding it. This pretty much means I have to see ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ this weekend as it nabbed 13 nominations. It also means maybe next week I’ll go see ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ as it grabbed 9. Along with its many nominations ‘Slumdog’ beat out ‘Button’ at the Golden Globes a couple weeks back so this could be a very interesting race. Until I’ve seen all of the movies (and this year the best picture nominees pretty much run the table of the other nominations) I won’t make any predictions but my expectations for ‘Slumdog’ have been set pretty insanely high.

Best Picture Nominees:

  • The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  • Frost/Nixon
  • Milk
  • The Reader
  • Slumdog Millionaire

In other nomination news, ‘Wall-E’ might have been left out of the top running but it was nominated in six other categories including Best Animated Feature of the Year, which it is. The animated short, ’Presto’, that preceded ‘Wall-E’ was nominated for Best Animated Short.
