Academy Award Nominations... I guess

I have to say somethng about the Academy Award nominations, which were announced today. But for the first time in many years, I'm not that interested in them. Perhaps it's because I think the ceremony will be canceled due to the writers' strike, or because I wasn't that thrilled with the crop of films at the end of the year, or because I spent more time at the close of 2007 reading and working on writing projects. I've only seen one of the nominated films, Michael Clayton. I do want to see Juno. Perhaps I'll see some of the others. But there's so much else to work on right now and events that demand my attention that the Oscars just aren't a priority.
