Trailers, trailers, trailers

Check out this awesome photograph from the 31st Academy Awards in 1958! That’s the year “Gigi” won nine awards, including Best Picture. Do I even need to say there were only five in the category that year? No, because it was like that for 81 seasons. I think if the Academy is going to have 10 best picture noms, they should reconsider their 1999 rejection of a Best Title Design award.

Take a look at the list of pictures nominated for Academy Awards this year. Now head further down the list to the less publicized awards. You mean you’ve never heard of “Instead of Abracadabra,” “A Matter of Loaf and Death” and “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen?”

Alright, maybe you heard of that last one, but did you know it was nominated for an Oscar? Sound Mixing. Yes, I’m surprised too.

If you’re looking at the list and find yourself out of the loop, or you just don’t know who to predict as the foreign language film winner, watch the trailers on‘s site. Or just guess based on the title, which is what I did back in the day. Hey, it worked about as well as being informed.
