nominations were handed out today and for the most part they've followed the script written by previous awards committees fairly closely.

A busy week with nearly 50 films making the list. Of those, there are more than half-a-dozen that are easily worth picking up and with several being contenders for DVD Pick of the Week. I was able to narrow it down to two, Arrested Development - Season 3 - Buy from Amazon and The Tick Vs. Season One - Buy from Amazon, with a couple of honorable mentions, Duck Season - Buy from Amazon and Friends with Money - Buy from Amazon.

There were no new releases to top $10,000 on the per theatre charts this week, but two holdovers were able to accomplish that feat.
Gabrielle added one more theatre over the weekend but saw its average slip less than 17% to $12,781.
Meanwhile, Changing Times quadrupled its theatre count while seeing its average fall to $10,622.

During a weekend where records were set at the top of the box office, it was a documentary
that won the race on the Per Theatre Charts. An Inconvenient Truth
set a record for highest per theatre average for a documentary
with more than $280,000 in 4 theatres for an average of $70,333; also, since its debut last Wednesday the film has earned nearly $500,000. Second place when to the aforementioned chart-topping X-Men: The Last Stand
, which earned a very impressive average of $27,846 in 3,690 theatres. The final film to top $10,000 was Fanaa
, which just missed the top ten on the overal charts with $753,067 in 72 theatres for an average of $10,459. This is much better than expected, but as a niche market film, it is unlikely to have strong legs.

The first of the new Friday edition Weekly Website Review column is here, but not without a hitch. We had a bit of a power outage early in the day so I did what any modern man would do when faced with the prospects of going without the Internet for an undetermined amount of time, I took a nap. Fortunately, I was mostly done before the power went out so there was no real affect on this week's list, but I am starting to this that this column is cursed. As for the list, its pretty average with the best of the bunch being A Scanner Darkly

It's a very busy week for limited releases.
While there are many films on this week's list, and several of them are earning glowing reviews, there's not much here that looks likely to breakout and earn some mainstream success.
