The Oscar Nominations for 2008

Will the Writer’s Strike ruin the Oscars? Too soon to tell. But The Oscar Nominations go on. The Oscar Nominees will all write their Oscar acceptance speeches and hope for the best. The Academy Awards have always been one of my favorite award shows, but the writing has never been my favorite part. Cut out all the production crap from the Oscars and just hand out the Academy Awards and Let The Winners Talk!

The Academy Awards is always filled with a bit drama, seeing if your favorite Oscar Nominee becomes an Oscar Winner. This year will be a little less exciting for me as I have not seen that many of the Oscar Nominated films. Still, I have seen a few of them and I always like seeing who ends up winning the Oscars. Congratulations to all the Oscar Nominees.
