    it also got 3 best song nominations omg thats the first right? i remember fame was the first time 2 songs from the same movie got a nomination


    Blogger Kamila said ... (10:08 AM) : 


    I must say I am a little bit disappointed to see this Oscar nomination list. I thought "Dreamgirls" would do so much better than did.

    The nice surprise, however, was to see "Love You I Do" and "Patience" nominated. I can't wait to see the cast performing the songs live.

    Go, Jennifer! Let's get the Oscar.


    Anonymous Darren said ... (10:33 AM) : 

    i am so shocked that dreamgirls werent nominated for best film after it won best film at the golden globes.


    Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:39 AM) : 

    Even though Dreamgirls didn't get a best picture nomination (what the !@#$!!?), it is the film with the most nominations in all categories. So CONGRATS to all Dreamgirls cast & crew!!!!! We love you, we do!!!



    Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:54 AM) : 

    Listen, love you I do and Patience will be performed!
    Can't wait to see it


    Blogger Craig Hickman said ... (10:56 AM) : 

    I can't breathe. The snub for picture and director is too much to take. The first time in Academy Award history that the film with the most nominations doesn't get a nod for best picture. The first time. %^&*()(*&^%$#%^&*(!!!!!


    Blogger Pauly said ... (1:11 PM) : 

    Hey I am such a fan of your blog and was disappointed with no best picture oscar...

    Still on the bright side it surely is favourite to pick up some awards...

    Looking forward to seeing the songs performed too!


    Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:19 PM) : 

    I wonder if Keith Robinson is going to perform too since he is in the beginning part of Patience. That would be really great if he did. He has such a beautiful voice


    Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:49 PM) : 

    the oscars will porobably never give a prodominately black film the highest honors.


    Anonymous ray wriston said ... (2:55 PM) :

    Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:30 PM) : 

    I am very happy for the cast of Dreamgirls, but I was hoping that they would get best motion picture! But congrats to Jennifer and Eddie, they will win I just know it! I cant wait to hear Beyonce sing Listen!The Academy Awards will be interesting!


    Blogger Joshua said ... (4:18 PM) : 

    Yay! I hope Jennifer Hudson wins for Love You I Do!!!


    Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:25 PM) : 

    Hey geeslady2020 I pm'd you over at IMDb!


    Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:37 PM) : 

    I can't say that I'm terribly surprised. While the reviews on rottentomatoes.com show a positive rating of 80% and ended up on about 12 Top 10 lists, the film was received with extreme ambivalence. The performances were unanimously praised, but the thing which ultimately hurt it in the end, according to the "critics", was a combination of the music and Bill Condon's direction. The assessment seemed to be that the film was was editing was too fast paced and that the recitatives (when the story breaks out into song) were not always congruous to the "language" of film musicals. I would have liked to see Dreamgirls nominated for Best Picture just like everyone else, but I don't think it would have won. And I don't necessarily think that it was the best film of the year, though it certainly is my favorite.

    My bets are on 'Babel' or 'The Departed'.


    Blogger Craig Hickman said ... (12:58 AM) : 

    Dreamgirls made go home empty-handed. Be mad, but don't be shocked if it loses everything.

    (Abigail Breslin has become the frontrunner on many people's minds now that Dreamgirls what shut out of the big awards.)

    The SAG awards on Sunday will be crucial for Jennifer and Eddie.


    Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:21 AM) : 

    true...even though Little miss Sunshine has won a lot of awards, the supporting actress category has been dominated by Jennifer in all of the key races, and by most/if not all of the major credits...

    I predict that dreamgirls will win supporting actress, art direction, best song, and MAYBE best supporting actor (that race is getting tighter and tighter b/w the people) and MAYBE best costume..


    Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:30 AM) : 

    I will never forgive the Academy for not nominatiting Dreamgirls! Of ALL the films nominated, it has made the more money and is the more sucessfull than any of the nomonated films! What the hell! Jennifer and Eddie better win! And Beyonce better get her act together and suppport Jennifer and Eddie for their award! Why wasen't she att the SAG awards when they one? Oh thats right she WAS NOT NOMINATED! Stop crying Beyonce and support the real stars of the movie! Damn, Jaime was there and he has an Oscar!
