Oscar Nominees On DVD

Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles CBS

While some top films, such as "The Aviator" and "Million Dollar Baby," are playing in theaters, you can already find a lot of movies with Oscar nominations at the video store.

The Early Show entertainment contributor Jess Cagle, who's also People Magazine's senior editor, reports that one of the Best Picture contenders is among them.

The Ray Charles biopic "Ray" recieved six nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor for Jamie Foxx.

At the Golden Globes, the actor said, "It was always a process of having discoveries about your career, and you hope that if you roll the dice, something like Ray Charles will come along and give you the opportunity to kind of show everything and not look like it was contrived."

Foxx also recieved a nomination as Best Supporting Actor for "Collateral," which is also available on home video.

The offbeat comedy "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" received two nominations: Best Screenplay and Best Actress for Kate Winslet, who has been nominated three times before.

"I knew that that script was going to be incredible," Winslet says. "It just was, and it held itself up, and the ending was always so great. I just couldn't believe I was being given this opportunity. And I just loved every second of it."

Catalina Sandino Moreno earned a Best Actress nomination for her film debut, playing a drug smuggler in "Maria Full Of Grace."

Mel Gibson's controversial "The Passion Of The Christ" received three nominations: Best Cinematography, Score, and Makeup.

"The Motorcyle Diaries" looks at the early years of Che Guevara. The film was recognized in the Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Song categories.

Leading the documentary field is "Super Size Me," in which director Morgan Spurlock goes on a 30-day diet, eating nothing but McDonald's.

Two of the three films up for Best Animated film are also available: "Shark Tale" and the year's highest grossing movie, "Shrek 2."

A third nominee for Best Animated film, "The Incredibles," which is also nominated for Best Original Screenplay, won't be available until March 15.
