DISTRICT 9 scores in Oscar nominations

By Michael Gingold
The sci-fi thriller DISTRICT 9, a sleeper hit this past summer for Sony’s TriStar Pictures, has something more to celebrate this morning with the announcement of the nominees for the 82nd annual Academy Awards. The Peter Jackson-produced, docudrama-style saga of the bloody conflict between humans and extraterrestrials they’ve segregated in South Africa landed four nominations, including one of the 10 slots for Best Picture.

The movie is also up for Best Adapted Screenplay (written by director Neill Blomkamp, expanding his short film ALIVE IN JOBERG, and Terri Tatchell), Best Editing (Julian Clarke) and Best Visual Effects (Dan Kaufman, Peter Muyzers, Robert Habros and Matt Aitken). We’re also happy to see Fango fave Quentin Tarantino’s INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS grab eight noms (including Best Picture, Director and Original Screenplay). The Oscars will be awarded Sunday, March 7 at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST.
