OSCAR NOMINEES

 

These are the nominees for the 78th Annual Academy Awards. If you notice Terrance Howard is nominated for Best Actor for his role in “Hustle and Flow”. I did see this movie and it was pretty good but not oscar worthy. The good thing about this is that the Academy atleast recognizes Terrance’s great work this year i.e “Crash”. Jon Stewart will host the awards and you know he’s gonna rip it up.
