Gosling, Jesus Camp Nab Oscar Noms

After all that talk and supposition, big ups to Ryan Gosling, ThinkFilm and the entire Half Nelson team for scoring Best Actor recognition in this year's Oscar nominations. Naturally, this means another appearance for Gosling's tuxedo shirt, a seasonal superstition I'm sure will be around for many years to come.

Also worth noting: Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing's Jesus Camp received a nod for Best Documentary, bringing the grand total of eventual Oscar nominees previewed in the Reeler Screening Series to two. I'll settle for a 50 percent success rate for the Reeler Karma (though Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple was also shortlisted), and wish nothing but the best of luck to Grady, Ewing and Gosling as the Feb. 25 event draws near.

The other big New York story of the morning: Martin Scorsese will be in the running once more for Best Director for The Departed; a loss would cement him as the losingest directing nominee in Oscar history (0-for-6! Is that even possible?). He has no real Reeler Karma behind him, but I suppose he probably won't need it with a film like that. Go get 'em, Marty.

(And I suppose there are other nominations as well; find them here if you haven't found them a million other places already.)
