Satellite Award Nominations

Wow. It's good to see the excellent The House of Sand get some love. I never thought I would see it.

And Apocalypto is being counted as a Mexican film? Huh? It's an American production directed by Mel Gibson - while an actual Mexican film, Pan's Labyrinth, get's relegated to Best Animated Film (which it isn't). Who decided the classifications for Foreign Language film?

Half Nelson is continuing to quietly gain momentum. Could it be a surprise Best Picture nominee come Oscar time?

Hmmm...thanks for pointing that out. I copied and pasted the info from Oscarwatch.com instead of the Press Academy website, and either they left it out or I deleted it by mistake, because it required some heavy editing.

Glad you caught that.
