Two for Cate, none for 'Atonement' stars

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

This morning's nominations include a host of British actors — though Golden Globes nominees Keira Knightley and James McAvoy were noticeably absent from the acting categories for their roles in the lauded film "Atonement."

"Atonement" did get its expected best picture nod, and Irish actress Soairse Ronan is up for best supporting actress for her role in the film.

Elsewhere, there will be plenty of other Brits to cheer on Oscars night: Daniel Day-Lewis was nominated as best actor, Julie Christie for best actress (even though she said earlier she really didn't want the recognition, she says this morning she will attend), Tom Wilkinson for best supporting actor and Tilda Swinton for best supporting actress.

Meanwhile, Australian actress Cate Blanchett is nominated for not one but two acting awards — best supporting actress for her role as Bob Dylan in "I'm not There" and best actress for the title role of "Elizabeth: The Golden Age."
