For a complete listing of the nominations visit www.oscars.com . I will say I was disappointed that Dreamgirls didn't get nominated in Best Picture, however I haven't seen all of the other nominees to comment on the snub.

hey boo, yeah this is a good year for The Blacks, even with the DREAMGIRLS best picture snub (what a shame). But hey, Jennifer Hudson was nominated for best supporting actress, not actress in a leading role---I think you probably just typed the latter by mistake.

Talk with you soon, we still got "work" to do...

Thank God for movies we can be proud of...i.e. "pursuit..."and "Dreamgirls"...fingers crossed!

The Next Book for the Book Club is
"JADED" by Kevin E. Taylor...I'm sure this one is going to be good!
