The eight nominations for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button include Best Picture, Best Actor (Brad Pitt), and Best Actress (Cate Blanchett). The Dark Knight received six nominations, including Best Picture but oddly, Heath Ledger was not nominated for his portrayal of the Joker.

    Well, I must admit the curious in this Button movie will be to see if Pitt gets an award. Cate Blanchett, I believe is a stellar actor and her nominations and wins have been very well deserved. So, I will put this on the to see list, along with Milk. Changeling an enormous pass as I cannot stomach Jolie in any way, shape or form, albeit I have enjoyed many of Clint’s projects. Maybe I’ll attmept it after downing a large pack of Gravol. Sorry to hear Heath’s name not there.
