There Will be Oscar Nominations for Saoirse Ronan and Kelly Macdonald but No nomination for "our" Keira.

I know Saoirse will get nominated today. Why?

- She deserves it.
- I got my friend to draw this, and if she doesn't get nominated, all that hard work will have gone to nothing:

Isn't it lovely?

Isn't it the coolest thing you've ever seen? It's lovely!!!

My friend's name is Hannah, by the way. She's going to be a famous animator in several years.

So yes. Saoirse must get nominated. GO SAOIRSE!!!!

All in all, I'm going with what most people are predicting, with a few changes:
- I'm predicting Kelly Macdonald for NCFOM rather than Tilda Swinton for Michael Clayton. Her BAFTA nomination is the only main plaudit she's gotten for the role, I know, but she was just too good to ignore. Add that to the fact that she's in the frontrunner, I think she could just be a surprise.
- I'm predicting von Sydow for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly rather than Halbrook for Into the Wild.
- Out of my Best Picture predictions are only two that I'm sure about: No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood. All the other three could easily get displaced by Into the Wild or Michael Clayton, but for now, I'm going with my gut (and heart) and picking my favoured three of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Atonement and Juno.
- No James. I was realistic. :( :(





So that's that. Now all I can do is wait.

I would love it if Kelly got nominated but sadly I don't think it will happen.
