    Cool The Academy Award Nominations thread

    I lnow that the nominations are due out very soon. I just have one comment...


    GO WALK THE LINE!!!

    If the movie is ignored for Best Picture-at least nomination wise (I think Narnia is the movie of the year BTW) I am going to be upset. I saw the movie the first day it came out and bless the poor people who I saw it with cause I couldn't help tapping my toes and singing along to all the wonderful music.

    So what are your hopes for the nominations?

    Re: The Academy Award Nominations thread

    Although I do wish Narnia would get a best Picture nod as well as a nomination for Tilda Swinton (I thought it was such a great film), I know that the only awards it might get nominated for are the technical ones (best visual effects, best score, best song, etc). For the main awards (picture, actors, director, etc) I expect Brokeback Mountain to dominate.

    For animated picture, I'm expecting the three nominees to be Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Little & a third spot toss up between Madacascar, Howl's Moving Castle and Corpse Bride. I'm really hoping for Chicken Little to win, but I think W&G will (even though I thought it was a terrible movie).

    "Brokeback Mountain" all the way!!!

    I have my fingers crossed for Heath. I'm hoping he can pull off an upset over Philip Seymour Hoffman ("Capote"). I'm looking to the S.A.G. awards tonight for hope; actors are really responding to Heath's performance.

    As far as "Walk the Line" I like Reese Witherspoon for Best Actress. Felicity Huffman is a strong contender, but her chances are seriously hurt by the fact that screeners (DVD's) of her film "Transamerica" were NOT sent out to Academy members. Not neccessarily a "snub" but just for the fact that many will not have seen her performance. There are a LOT of films for Academy members to see, and for those that take voting seriously, screeners are a MUST.

    Also, look for "One Man Band" from Pixar in the Animated Short category, it's fantastic!

    I have high hopes for 'Brokeback'. But if it doesn't win anything, that's okay. The reality is is that the movie has finally been made and is out there for people to see. I think that is worth more than any reward it may get. I just want my DVD copy already!
