Inglourious Basterds at the Oscar Awards

The Oscar nominations list was revealed this morning (see the full list over here). As expected, Inglourious Basterds is up for several of them.


The movie is up for the following awards:

  • Actor in a Supporting Role: Christoph Waltz
  • Cinematography: Robert Richardson
  • Directing: Quentin Tarantino
  • Film Editing: Sally Menke
  • Best Picture: Lawrence Bender, Producer
  • Sound Editing: Wylie Stateman
  • Sound Mixing: Michael Minkler, Tony Lamberti and Mark Ulano
  • Writing (Original Screenplay): Quentin Tarantino

Whew! Also, I still can’t believe that this year there are TEN contenders for Best Picture. Whatever happened to five?

I’ve read a few things today where there are references to Brad Pitt being snubbed by the Oscars but I really disagree. To me a “snub” is more along the lines of being nominated at every single awards show out there EXCEPT the Oscars. Also, while it would have been nice, I don’t think anyone really expected Brad to be nominated for an Oscar this year. It’s not really a lead actor type of movie, hence the reason they were nominated as an ensemble cast a couple of times.

It’s already been announced that Brad and Angelina won’t be attending the Oscars but I’ll be tuning in to see how Quentin does. So far The Hurt Locker is doing really well at the awards shows and is a strong contender for Best Picture but I’m hoping Quentin will at least win for his original screenplay.

      Sunny, I meant Angie didn’t win the best leading actress award. She was nominated for Changeling.
      I am rooting for Jeff Bridges or Colin Firth, He is my fav. 2nd to Brad, I like his movie Pride & Prejudice. Classic.
      I can’t wait to see more pictures of the Jolie-Pitt family. It could be next pictures of the family will be coming from Europe.
      Hello to all the fans around the world. God bless the Jolie-Pitt family.

      I thought so. You are one of long-time fans. My comment was just clarification.

      Someone on JJ said the interview I mentioned earlier w/ the director’s wife is fake. So disregard
      Considering the source (Gala =German tabloid), we need to be carefully reading. But key element of the story might be true.
      1. The German director’s wife carelessly told something about The Tourist.
      * If they made up whole story they would not mention her name.
      2. They will start filming in Paris (briefly in Feb) and then move to Venice.
      * My guess is Anthony and Cara met in Paris. (remember Bogota scene in Mr&Mrs Smith ? A night in Bogota led forever bond). Or Cara may be working there as an interpol. Venice may be used as Nice in ‘Anthony Zimmer’. haha, I’m Angie and Depp fan and very interested in this movie.

      I understand 007, because there have been a few times I have said something on blogs and people seem to get upset. And then sometimes Im not sure if its them not wanting to hear it, or if its just that I came across as being snotty. Its very hard to figure out peoples intentions when its just text.

      I wasn’t going to say anything, but I agree 200% that some people are actually more involved in Brad and Angelina’s lives than their own. I think Brad and Angie are some peoples lives. Its weirder when people obsess over their kids and devote so much to them. It’s ok if you are actual family though. lol

      Yoco- I wouldn’t be surprised if Brad takes Maddox to the Super Bowl, but I doubt we’ll be seeing Pax there, as he wasn’t with them at the game they attended a few weeks ago, either. I get the feeling that he probably has trouble sitting still for that long (he seems to be quite an energetic little boy from the photos we’ve seen! :)). :)

      Kristen – thanks for the link to that People article. I believe every word of it. People Magazine isn´t one of those rags but a reliable magazine. And like one witness said that kind of love can´t be faked. Their love is for real. It´s always wondeful to read a positive story of our fav couple. This couple will be together for a long time and grow old together. I just feel so angry that even the whole Pitt family have been involved into this outrageous LIE! I´m sure that Brad´s parents and siblings are also furious about these rumors. They certainly love Angelina a lot and want that the whole Jolie-Pitt family will be left alone. Jane and Angie are very close nowadays and I´m certain that Jane doesn´t care about the rumors. She knows the truth just like the rest of the family. And the truth is that Brad and Angie couldn´t be happier! Hope that the family wil soon travel to Europe and putt the craziness behind them. Here in Europe the press in more subtle toward them and leave them alone. Hope to see new pics of the children. Miss the twins terribly!
