I've only seen two movies from this list. Little Miss Sunshine and Volver. Film title Babel is a movie I've wanted to see but haven't yet. Volver wasn't really on my MUST SEE list. It was recommended by a friend. Miss Sunshine was also recommended, and I wanted to see it because Steve Carrell was in it. This Academy nominee list is my version of the Posture awards because somewhere I recall reading a movie review of the film SherryBaby in which the critic said the film would have been worthy of some kind of award if Maggie Gyllenhaal would not slouch. That is what I believe to be her best feature. That's basically the reason I go see her in films. It puzzles me why an independent film like Volver should get a nomination when SherryBaby, also an indy film, didn't get one. It makes me wonder whether An American crime will suffer the same treatment because it's release date at Sundance was January 19, it's nationwide release (ltd or untld) is August 17.
