There was no red carpet, no flashy dresses yesterday morning, but the Oscar nominees were announced in California. Of course Johnny Depp is in there, Cate Blanchett, Sweeney Todd, and No Country for Old Men. What caught some people's eye, though, is who was left out. No Sean Penn, or Keira Knightley, no Tim Burton, or Enchanted, and the list goes on. We'll have to wait till next month to find out who wins Oscar in the end, but today we'll talk with Matt Singer, from the Independent Film Channel. And we want to know: What or who do you think got snubbed by Oscar this year?
