    As our recent look at his filmography can attest, Peter Weir is one of the most versatile and fascinating directors currently working. And even if you aren't totally gripped by one of his films, it's hard not to be impressed by the artful craftsmanship that Weir brings to each project.

    A Look at the Oscar Nominations

    I held my breath this morning as the best picture nominations were read. It wasn't until I heard the 10th, the one that named Winter's Bone as a nominee that I was finally able to exhale.

    Watch: Heart Smashing End Credit Sequence To 'Blue Valentine'

    Okay, so after all the NC-17 hoopla and some fantastic critical praise, "Blue Valentine" only walked with one Oscar nomination this morning for Michelle Williams (though Ryan Gosling is every bit as deserving as the co-star).
