Oscar nominations, part 2

A morning of firsts:

-First time ever that the film with the most nods (Dreamgirls with 8) is NOT up for Best Picture.

-First time since Best Cinematography became a single category (in 1967 - from the '30s until '67, there were separate awards for B&W and Color) that none of the nominees match up with the BP nods.

-First time since 1927 - i.e., since the first Oscars EVER - that none of the BP nominees are represented in Best Actor (from In Contention).

-This is not, however, the first time one film has claimed 3 (of 5) nods for Best Original Song (Dreamgirls' "Listen," "Love You I Do," and "Patience"); Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King both did the same, and each won the trophy (for "Beauty and the Beast" and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," respectively) and Best Original Score (for which Dreamgirls isn't nommed) to boot.
