2009 Oscar nominations

Quite a few surprises in here...nominations can be viewed in full here.

Melissa Leo, Richard Jenkins and the brilliant Michael Shannon get nominations - a great day for character actors

Josh Brolin: At last gets some award recognition after an incredible year.

Martin McDonagh lands a screenplay nom for In Bruges

Milk gets nods for Best Picture and Director - I was afraid it was just too gay for the Academy

The Reader - Best Picture? Really?? Ditto for its Best Director nod

Angelina Jolie - boooo!

No Sally Hawkins or Kristin Scott Thomas

The Dark Knight is totally snubbed in all major categories with the exception of Ledger as Supporting Actor

Kate Winslet is bumped from Supporting to Lead for The Reader - and ignored for her Golden Globe-winning/SAG nominated role in Revolutionary Road
