The nominations are in for the second-biggest awards show of the year, and, as expected, “Up in the Air” leads the pack with six nods. The movie was nominated for Best Picture (Drama) and Best Screenplay, while Jason Reitman, George Clooney, Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick are all in the running for Best Director, Best Actor (Drama) and Best Supporting Actress, respectively.
But it’s not all about Reitman, Clooney and co.—some other travel movies we’ve kept an eye on this year are among the nominees as well. The Hangover and Julie and Julia are both nominated for Best Picture (Musical/Comedy), while Meryl Streep landed a Best Actress nod for her role in the latter as Julia Child. Sandra Bullock also received a Best Actress nomination for her role in “The Proposal” as an uptight Canadian editor who heads to Sitka, Alaska for an attempted greencard wedding. Finally, Up is nominated for Best Animated Feature Film, while it and Where the Wild Things Are were both nominated for Best Original Score.
“Up in the Air” and Meryl Streep were shoo-ins here—you can expect to see them on the Oscar nominations list when it comes out, too, while “The Hangover” and Sandra Bullock will more than likely disappear when the division between comedy and drama is dropped for the big show.
