The Nominees I Have Yet to See (or possibly will never see *cough*Norbit*cough*):
- In the Valley of Elah
- Into the Wild
- I'm Not There
- The Golden Compass
- Norbit
- The Kite Runner
- Surf's Up

I also haven't seen three of the documentaries (No End in Sight, Taxi to the Dark Side, War Dance), any of the five foreign language films (Die Fälscher, Beaufort, Mongol, Katyn, 12), or any of the 14 shorts, due to lack of opportunity (they weren't distributed at a theater near me).

And all but In the Valley of Elah and Surf's Up will be released on DVD after the Oscars air, so I probably won't see anymore until then.

And for fun...

Categories in Which I've Seen All Nominees:
- Best Picture
- Best Lead Actress
- Best Director
- Best Screenplay, Original
- Best Screenplay, Adapted
- Best Cinematography
- Best Costume Design
- Best Original Song
- Best Sound
- Best Sound Editing

And in EVERY OTHER CATEGORY, I've seen all but one film.

I'm impressed with myself at this point. And I lament a little the amount of money that has gone the way of the studios and cinemas. What am I going to do in May if I don't have an income that allows me to average a movie per week?
