The list of nominees for the 2005 Oscars is out.

I haven't seen a majority of the films up for nomination, and having been largely avoidant of the cinema as of late, I haven't managed to see a single film up for Best Picture. I am glad to see that The Incredibles is up for nominations in a number of categories.

As I was browsing the list, I noticed that some categories only have 3 nominees while others have 5. For instance, looking at the "Best animated feature film of the year" category I noticed that neither Home on the Range or Polar Express got pity nominations in that category. OF course, this may be because the movie studios don't want to split the votes between two films.
