I PROMISE I'll write about the Oscar nominations as soon as I have time.
In the meantime, I'll review MONSTER HOUSE which I watched tonight. Totally deserving of the Oscar nomination it received today, it's an incredibly well-written script, with great characters, lots of unexpected plot twists, great animation and terrific sound design and music. It's also a very dark movie; I'm surprised at what slipped into a children's film. I highly recommend it.
