The Oscar Nominations: Clayton and Juno join TWWB and NCFOM

Michael Clayton and Juno might not have 8 nominations like my favorite two pictures of the year each have (No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood) but Jason Reitman and Tony Gilroy are the true winners with today’s announcements becoming the dark horse selections to beat out The Diving Bell and the Butterfly among others. Completing the fivesome is the depleted Atonement – a film that comes in with less clout than it had with the Golden Globes. Here is the complete list below…..:
