Beyonce is Gonna Be Pissed!

The flashy musical "Dreamgirls" leads Academy Awards contenders with eight nominations, but surprisingly is shut out in the best picture category for which it had been considered a potential front-runner. SNAP. Beyonce is bout to come check up on it.

Best actress nominations included Helen Mirren for "The Queen," Penelope Cruz for "Volver,” Judi Dench for "Notes On A Scandal," Meryl Streep for "The Devil Wears Prada" and Kate Winslet for "Little Children."

Best actor nods went to Leonardo DiCaprio for "Blood Diamond," "Ryan Gosling" for "Half Nelson," Peter O'Toole for "Venus," Will Smith for "The Pursuit of Happyness," and Forest Whitaker for "The Last King of Scotland."

The big prize of the night, best picture, will go to either "Babel," "The Departed," "Letters From Iwo Jima," "Little Miss Sunshine," or "The Queen." **My money is on "The Queen."**

Earlier, likely contenders for the top Oscar in today's nominations were the musical "Dreamgirls," the mob saga "The Departed," the multinational drama "Babel" and the British-royalty tale "The Queen."

Chris and I watched Little Miss Sunshine the other day and LOVED IT! I'm a sucker for dark comedy and beauty pageant movies and this was the perfect combo.
