4 Oscar Nominations for Anna Karenina, 5 for Skyfall, and 2 for Flight!

The 85th Academy Award Nominations has been announced this morning and Joe Wright's Anna Karenina (starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen) is nominated for 4 Oscars! Once again, no love for our trio: Keira, Matthew, and Joe (in acting and directing categories)...they're in good company though as lots were snubbed in the Oscar nominations this year. But I'm glad that they didn't ignore Anna Karenina's tech side (ie. Dario Marianelli, Sarah Greenwood, Katie Spencer, Seamus McGarvey, and Jacqueline Durran ) who worked on its brilliant technical side that deserved to be recognized and nominated. Their nominations, at least made up for the lack of the acting categories and directing. Hope they win it all.

UPDATE: Anna Karenina just won 2 Critics Choice Awards tonight!
They won their only two nominations...Congrats AK crew!!!
Best Costume Designer
- Jacqueline Durran
Best Art Direction - Sarah Greenwood (production design) and Katie Spencer (set decorator)

The 85th Academy Awards will be held next month, Sunday, February 24th.

Congrats and best of luck to Anna Karenina and its crew for their 4 Oscar nominations! Also, best of luck to Dario Marianelli for his Golden Globe Nomination for Best Original Score for AK and for AK's 7 BAFTA nominations!

In other Oscar nominations, Judi Dench was also snubbed along with her co-stars Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem in the acting categories as well as their director Sam Mendes, but their film  Skyfall did earned 5 Oscar Nominations including original song for Adele! Flight has 2 Oscar nominations including Best Actor for Denzel Washington. Unfortunately, Kelly Reilly was also snubbed. She was pretty good in that film.

    Achievement in cinematography

    Seamus McGarvey

    -Seamus McGarvey, nominee for Best Cinematography (ANNA KARENINA)
