Other informations:

Changeling:

Angelina Jolie’s nomination for Changeling marks the first time since 2000 that she has been nominated for an acting Oscar. She previously won for Best Supporting Actress in Girl, Interrupted.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button tied with The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and Chicago as the films with the most nominations of the decade (13), including Best Picture.

The Dark Knight:

The Dark Knight gathered a total of eight nominations, making it the most nominated superhero film in Academy Award history.

Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker has made him the second actor in Academy Award history to win posthumously (after Peter Finch).

The Dark Knight, along with Iron Man, is the first superhero film to be nominated since its 2005 predecessor Batman Begins.

Doubt:

Meryl Streep’s Best Actress nomination for Doubt brings her total Academy Award nominations to 15, the most nominations earned by any actor or actress in the history of the Academy Awards.

Doubt is the first film since Chicago (2002) to receive four or more nominations in the acting categories.

Frost/Nixon:

Frank Langella’s nomination, at age 71, ranks him as the sixth oldest nominee ever for Best Actor in the history of the Academy Awards.

Langella’s nomination makes him the second actor to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for portraying Richard Nixon, the first being Anthony Hopkins in 1995.

Iron Man:

Iron Man is the first Marvel Studios film since Spider-Man 2 to be nominated for one or more Academy Awards.

Iron Man, along with The Dark Knight, is the first superhero film to be nominated since 2005’s Batman Begins.

Milk:

Milk is the first gay film to be nominated for Best Picture since 2005’s Brokeback Mountain.

The Reader:

Stephen Daldry’s Best Director nomination for The Reader makes him the first director to be nominated in the category for his first three films. He was previously nominated for Billy Elliot and The Hours.

Slumdog Millionaire:

Slumdog Millionaire is tied with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon for the most nominations for a non-American production this decade (10), including Best Picture.

Slumdog Millionaire is tied with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon for the most nominations for a low-budget film since 1984 (A Passage to India).

A. R. Rahman is the first Indian national to receive three Oscar nominations and the first Asian to receive three Oscar nominations in the same year.

WALL·E:

WALL·E received six nominations, tying it with Beauty and the Beast for the most nominated animated film.

Reactions:

Reactions were diverse; some pronounced the Oscar nominations this year to be surprising, particularly at Kate Winslet’s sole nomination for The Reader, and not for the expected film Revolutionary Road.

Nominations for Michael Shannon in Revolutionary Road and Viola Davis for Doubt were also met with surprise, as both have under ten minutes of screen time. Further, the Academy has been accused of snubbing WALL-E and The Dark Knight, both of which were considered contenders for Best Picture nominations. After winning a Golden Globe for his song “The Wrestler”, Bruce Springsteen was not nominated for Best Song.

Controversies:

Like the previous year’s awards, this year’s Oscars has also faced multiple controversies.

Snubbed films

Following the nominations announcement, the Academy was accused of deliberately snubbing Gran Torino, WALL-E, The Dark Knight, Revolutionary Road, and The Wrestler, five critically praised films that were considered contenders for nominations in the five major categories. As a result, Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay nominations for the films were widely expected.

It was also accused of snubbing Clint Eastwood for Best Actor in Gran Torino, Sally Hawkins for Best Actress in Happy Go Lucky, Kristen Scott Thomas for I’ve Loved You So Long, Ralph Fiennes for Best Supporting Actor in The Duchess, and Andrew Stanton and Christopher Nolan as Best Director for WALL-E and The Dark Knight, respectively, as well as the omission of Bruce Springsteen from the Best Song category, for his song from The Wrestler, which took the 2009 Golden Globe Award.

Disputes over Ledger’s statuette

Because Best Supporting Actor nominee Heath Ledger died in January of 2008 making his nomination one of posthumous recognition, the Academy had disputes over who should accept the award and who should gain ownership of it should Ledger win it. Following talks with Ledger’s family in Australia, the Academy ruled that his previous domestic partner Michelle Williams could not accept the award as the two were not married.

They then decided that Ledger and Williams’ three-year-old daughter, Matilda Rose Ledger, would own the award. However, due to Matilda’s age, she will not gain full ownership of the statuette until her eighteenth birthday in 2023. Until that time, Michelle Williams will hold the statuette in trust for Matilda. Ledger’s family attended the ceremony to accept the award on his behalf when he won.

Faked winners leak

Shortly after the voting polls were closed for the awards, a purported list of winners was posted online.[30] The list, which bore a purported signature from Academy president Sid Ganis, stated that Mickey Rourke won for Best Actor, Kate Winslet won for Best Actress, Amy Adams won for Best Supporting Actress, Heath Ledger won for Best Supporting Actor and Slumdog Millionaire won for Best Picture. It has since been confirmed as a fake list.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences spokeswoman Leslie Unger later revealed that the list was “a complete fraud”, and that PricewaterhouseCoopers had just began to count the ballots. The awards were last revealed prior to the ceremony in the 1950s. The list was proven to be false early in the ceremony when, at the very beginning of the show, Penélope Cruz was victorious as Best Supporting Actress, not Amy Adams, the winner in the fake list.

Other controversies

Prior to the nominations announcement, it was suggested that the 2008-09 Screen Actors Guild labor dispute could affect the awards by discouraging actors’ attendance at the ceremony, However, as talks to end the dispute between the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) were ongoing, the expected strike did not affect the awards ceremony, although a resolution between SAG and AMPTP has not yet been reached.

Peter Gabriel, who was originally scheduled to perform his nominated song “Down to Earth” from WALL-E during the live broadcast, declined to perform after learning that he would be allowed to sing only 65 seconds of the song during the ceremony’s Best Original Song nominee performances. Gabriel still attended the ceremony. John Legend performed the song in place of Gabriel, backed by the Soweto Gospel Choir.

The Academy expressed an ongoing fear of low viewership during Oscar night.

Binangonan, Rizal, Megamall, raining, and waking up late.

10 10 2008

I told to my parents last night, that I am going to Megamall, because I will going to attend a job fair there. My dad told me that I was already attended a job fair in Gateway Mall last Friday last week. My mom told me last night, come to join with them in Binangonan, Rizal. This morning, before I going to enter our bathroom, I ask my mom: “You told me that you are going to Binangonan, Rizal?”. My mom answered me: “I didn’t come”. I don’t know, and I didn’t ask, what is/are her reason/s.

Earlier in the evening of last night, I turned on of my cellphone at 6 a.m., wake up around few minutes past 10 a.m., and raining. I don’t know what what time started raining, and I don’t know why I woke up late,although/though, I am not tired nor stay up late last night.

So far, here are reasons, why I want to go to Megamall:

to try Kenny Roger’s cucumber shake;
to look for books I want to buy in Powerbooks and in National Book Store
