A quick scan reveals what you'd expect to see. For movies, they round up the folk from "Capote," "Brokeback Mountain," "Walk the Line." There's TV too. Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series. Oh, it's the usual Patricia Heaton, Megan Mullally stuff. No Lisa Kudrow, for the brilliant "Comeback"? Then I really don't care about your judgment about anything. Or do you think if she was good the show wouldn't have been cancelled? Or, why waste an award on a show that can't be helped?
Well, this reminds me. Whenever you read one of these lists of nominees, what you really want to know is who got snubbed. I mean, there are some things actors do that are just such over-the-top pleas for a nomination that it's really embarrassing when they don't get it. Like, for actress-in-a-movie this year, they had to feel required to give a nomination to Felicity Huffman for "Transamerica." She did the big gender identity thing this year. That's usually good for a nomination. Oh, and Charlize Theron got ugly again, so we need to say yes, Charlize, very nice. Again.
So, who got snubbed?

UPDATE: Chris emails:
OscarWatch.com has a list on the left side bar of all the potential
contenders, and it has color-coded asterisks marking which ones got
the nominations from each group, so you should be able to figure it
But I'll tell you, here (these are just all the people they list on
oscarwatch.com who didn't get nominated):
Actor: Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow), Jeff Daniels (The Squid and
the Whale), Ralph Fiennes, Eric Bana (Munich) snubbed.
Actress: Keira Knightley, Joan Allen, Gwyneth Paltrow, Naomi Watts,
Vera Farmiga (who I've never heard of).
Sup Actor: Bob Hoskins is the main snub. Terrence Howard in Crash
apparently, when he's also a contender in Hustle & Flow in the lead
category. Will Farrell, Frank Langella, and Kevin Costner
Sup Actress: This is more interesting--Maria Bello and Scarlett
Johannson snubbed. Laura Linney, Diane Keaton, and some other people I
don't think anyone cares about.
DGA "snubs": The Constant Gardener, Walk the Line, Cinderella Man (Ron
Howard), King Kong, Syriana, Match Point (Woody), A History of
