You are right - but I heard the applause, too.

And Meryl Streep has left Katharine Hepburn in the dust once again: Not only does her sixteenth nomination put her even farther ahead of Hepburn on the all-time acting nominations list, today's nomination in gives her the most nominations in Best Actress, with thirteen.
If Avatar wins, it would be the first Best Picture winner with no acting or writing nominations since what? Grand Hotel?

Norma Shearer and her brother Douglas have multiple Oscar nominations but only Norman's were for acting. Douglas was a sound engineer.
There are Jennifer and Meg Tilly, Julia and Eric Roberts, the Redgraves, probably many others.
The Redgrave family has three nominees by the way.
I knew I should have done a little checking before I posted that. And thank you, Uri, for reminding us of the Coppolas as well.
The Redgraves were in fact the first family to have three acting nominees. The Fondas, of course, were the second.

Hans Zimmer is an Oscar winner for 1994's "The Lion King." He also got a nod in 2000 for "Gladiator."
Of course I know that, just saying I'm glad he finally got nominated after he received no nominations for The Da Vinci Code, Last Samurai, Pearl Harbor or The Holiday...
Of those you listed, only "The Last Samurai" is, in my opinion, a good movie. That doesn't mean a score can't be nominated, but I bet it's one of the reasons most of those didn't make it. Da Vinci Code was widely panned, Pearl Harbor managed a few techs (the effects were quite good) and The Holiday was forgotten as soon as it came out.

I don't agree. I think if anything, this is the PERFECT time to discuss this. Last year, two "commercial" films (The Dark Knight, WALL-E) lost to an "artistic" one. This year with the scope broadened to ten nominees, it's the perfect time to truly gauge whither lies the acumen of their sensibilities.
