The nominations were announced just before 8am, and for those of us who couldn’t make it down to Piccadilly for that time in the morning, the list is here.
A good showing for Slumdog Millionaire and Kate Winslet, and because he always sounds so darned affable on Adam and Joe’s 6music show, I’m pleased for Garth Jennings to be nominated for the Carl Foreman award.
To my mind, a generally interesting list, even if it does suffer the perennial problem of containing films which aren’t yet out in the UK (Frost/Nixon, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button), thus rendering it a bit difficult to have an entirely certain opinion.. Not that lack of knowledge is usually an obstacle to me having an opinion.
And nor should it be for you; anyone have any strong feelings about any of the nominations? Do share.
