Well, what do you know. Steven Soderbergh appears to have doubled his fortune (or shot himself in the foot depending on how you look at it) with twin Oscar nominations Tuesday for two little movies named ERIN BROCKOVICH and TRAFFIC. ERIN picked up a total of five noms including: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay (Original) Best Actress, and Best Supporting Actor. TRAFFIC picked up a total of nominations including: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay (Adapted) and Best Editing. Steven Soderbergh is the first Director to be nominated twice since 1934. Soderbergh reacted to the news by saying, "I can't even put into words what I'm feeling right now. I think that if I didn't have the distraction of shooting a film, I would have to be sedated." Way to go Steven, we're rooting for you. (READ MORE HERE)
