I am not the kind of person who puts much stake in the pomp and circumstance of the Academy Awards, but it’s nice to see some of the films that have graced our screen get some well-deserved credit. The nominations for the 78th Annual Academy Awards were announced this morning, and several nominees made stops at the Walker Cinema.
- Brokeback Mountain – 8 nominations
- Good Night, And Good Luck – 6 nominations
- North Country – 2 nominations
- Hustle and Flow – 2 Nominations
- Darwin’s Nightmare – Nominated for Best Documentary Feature
- Paradise Now – Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film
It’s great to see all of these films get the nod, but I am most excited to see Darwin’s Nightmare and Paradise Now make the list. It would be fantastic to see both of those films find a wider audience.
