Have you seen the list of nominees for the up coming Oscars? It’s up on display at the official Oscars website for fans to digest and talk about.

Most of the actors and actresses I like are nominated for this year, Sean Penn for Best Actor for his work on Milk, Brad Pitt also for Best Actor for the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

My two favorite actresses are also nominated for the Best Actress award, the awesome pair from 2006 movie “The Devil Wears PradaMeryl Streep for the movie Doubtand my Hollywood crush, Anne Hathaway for her work in Rachel Getting Married.

I confess though that I haven’t seen any of the movies these actors and actresses have appeared in. So I’ll make it a point to see all of it once school breaks for the summer season.

But of all the nominees for this year’s Oscars, the one I’m really rooting for is the late Heath Ledger. He’s nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his legendary work as Joker in The Dark Knight. He deserves the award, he truly does.

Also, I hope The Dark Knight wins the award for Best Sound Editing and Best Cinematography because the sounds in the film were spot on and visuals of the movie were brilliant! The IMAX sequences and shots were just mind-blowing!

I’m all fingers crossed for the late Heath Ledger and The Dark Knight. The 81st Oscars will commence this February 22nd and it looks like it’s going to a memorable one.

How about you guys? Any particular actor/actress or movie you’re rooting for this coming Oscars?

  1. I was not a Heath Ledger fan before this film. I thought of him as just another "pretty boy" actor. But I have to say I honestly think his portrayal of the Joker is the finest example of acting I have ever seen. He was truly amazing and I can see how deep he got into this role. If he doesn't win it would be wrong.
