Milk gets eight nomination including for Best Picture, Best Actor (Sean Penn), Best Supporting Actor (Josh Brolin), and Best Director (Gus Van Sant). This of course makes me very happy because I found Milk to be a fantastic film.
Benjamin Button has a majority of the nominations, thirteen.
Oh, and who got snubbed? Dark Knight got snubbed, that’s who.
