Academy Award nominations were announced this morning. I was actually quite pleased to note that I’ve already seen two of the Best Picture contenders, Brokeback Mountain and Crash, and that I really want to see the other three, Capote, Good Night and Good Luck, and Munich. It’s a rare year when that happens.
In the category of really neat but off-the-wall facts, I just discovered that Dan Futterman wrote the Oscar-nominated screenplay for Capote. He is one multi-talented guy; he played Amy’s writer-brother Vincent, my favorite character on Judging Amy.
