Wow Shannon, thank you for doing all these amazingly-organized posts on the Oscars, it helps them be a little less overwhelming and much more focused.

Isn't it interesting that Dreamgirls got the most nominations! Very cool. Not surprised Beyonce isn't nominated though, LOL.

I hear that there are a record number of multicultural nominees this year which rocks. I also heard the little girl from Miss Sunshine screamed when she heard her nomination, just like in the movie. So cute!

Hey Suzie! I'm glad you like the lists!

Dreamgirls has 3 nominations in the original song category so in theory, they can only win a total of 5 if they win everything. But they still have the most nom's. Beyonce was credited as the fourth person for one/some/all (I'm not sure) of the songs but they only consider the first three names for the nomination. That is word of mouth, I've not researched it so take it with a grain of salt.

Thanks Shannon, that's very interesting and I appreciate the explanation, I didn't know that they could only win a total of 5 noms. Do you know who is hosting yet? I heard for sure it isn't John Stewart, not surprised there.
