    Re: Oscar Nominations

    Surprised only those three animated movies got the nomination.... but I guess Chicken Little really isn't deserving of the nomination.

    No 'Chicken Little'?! I'm surprised. I thought it would be there. (I didn't see it, but I thought it would be there...)

    Brokeback Mountain has been the darling of the awards season, despite being shut out at the SAG's. It will take home Oscar gold.

    ACTOR
    Philip Seymour Hoffman, "Capote"
    Terrence Howard, "Hustle & Flow"
    Heath Ledger, "Brokeback Mountain"
    Joaquin Phoenix, "Walk the Line"
    David Strathairn, "Good Night, and Good Luck"
    Philip Seymour Hoffman owns this category. Everyone else should just be happy to be nominated. No contest.

    ACTRESS
    Judi Dench, "Mrs. Henderson Presents"
    Felicity Huffman, "Transamerica"
    Keira Knightley, "Pride & Prejudice"
    Charlize Theron, "North Country"
    Reese Witherspoon, "Walk the Line"
    A two woman race between Felicity Huffman and Reese Witherspoon, who both won at the Golden Globes. Look for Reese to get the edge for being in the more popular movie.

    SUPPORTING ACTOR
    George Clooney, "Syriana"
    Matt Dillon, "Crash"
    Paul Giamatti, "Cinderella Man"
    Jake Gyllenhaal, "Brokeback Mountain"
    William Hurt, "A History of Violence"
    Giamatti is due. He lost Best Actor to Jamie Foxx last year and Academy voters still owe him for American Splendor.

    SUPPORTING ACTRESS
    Amy Adams, "Junebug"
    Catherine Keener, "Capote"
    Frances McDormand, "North Country"
    Rachel Weisz, "The Constant Gardener"
    Michelle Williams, "Brokeback Mountain"
    The toughest category to pick. Keener, Weisz and Williams are all popular choices. Weisz won the Golden Globe and the SAG, so give her the Oscar.

    DIRECTOR
    George Clooney, "Good Night, and Good Luck"
    Paul Haggis. "Crash"
    Ang Lee, "Brokeback Mountain"
    Bennet Miller, "Capote"
    Steven Spielberg, "Munich"
    No surprises here as the noms for Picture and Director match. Ang Lee wins for "Brokeback Mountain."

    ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
    "Crash"
    "Good Night, and Good Luck"
    "Match Point"
    "The Squid and the Whale"
    "Syriana"
    George Clooney is nominated three times this year. Academy voters will want to give him something. This is the one he'll get for "Good Night and Good Luck."

    ADAPTED SCREENPLAY
    "Brokeback Mountain"
    "Capote"
    "The Constant Gardener"
    "A History of Violence"
    "Munich"
    "Brokeback Mountain" and "Capote" are the favorites here. The win goes to Larry McMurtry's manual typewriter.

    ANIMATED FEATURE
    "Howl’s Moving Castle"
    "Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride"
    "Wallace & Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit"
    Indulgent, pop-culture-reference heavy animated films are out (no "Madagascar" or "Chicken Little"). "Wallace & Gromit" should win, but Academy voters like Hayao Miyazaki's work (see "Spirited Away"). "Howl's Moving Castle" could pull off an upset.

    Re: Oscar Nominations

    I have a lot of movies to see.

    Been putting off Walk the Line, as I just kinda hoped it would go away. Damn. Reese Witherspoon bugs me as June Carter Cash. She just looks and sounds like herself....with brown hair. Ugh.

    Been wanting to see Munich (for Bana), and Good Night and Good Luck (Strathairn's eyes), Crash (mmmmmMatt Dillon) and Syriana (CLOONEY). Now I have legit reasons for seeing them.

    For fun though, I want to see Transamerica.

    Re: Oscar Nominations

    Brokeback leads with 8 nominations followed by Memoirs of a Geisha gaining mainly technical nominations but getting 7 of them (wow!) and then Crash and Good Night and Good Luck both with 6. Followed by Capote, Walk the Line and Munich all with 5.

    Glad to see Chronicles of Narnia up there a few times, seeing a Disney movie in the Oscar race is always nice.

    I am however really dissapointed in the best song category... I guess music in film just isn't what it used to be... it does make for a quick presentation of awards if you only have to play 3 songs that nobody has ever really heard. Too bad none of them are really amazing songs though, no offense, Dolly Parton is a legend, but still kinda a dissapointing show of songs.

    Re: Oscar Nominations

    I'm surprised about the songs, too.... I was expecting the Alanis song from Narnia and the Brokeback Mountain song, both of which got nominated at the Golden Globes, to be on the list.

    Stink, Walk the line is a really good film. But then again, I like Reese Witherspoon. You'd be surprised by her performance I think.

    Re: Oscar Nominations

    Okay, my thoughts.


    First, as long as March of the Penguins wins for best Documentary I will be happy.

    Second, I'm REALLY surprised that Capote got nominated for Best Picture. I thought that 5th spot would certainly go to Walk the Line or King Kong. I fully expected Phillip Seymour Hoffman to get nominated, and he is the favorite, but not the movie itself.

    I'm actually dissapointed that Walk the Line didn't get a Best Picture nod. I mean, Ray got a nod last year and that movie was just okay with a very good performance (although overrated) by Jamie Foxx.

    I fully expect Reese to walk away with the best actress award, and she was VERY good in the movie.

    It seems that the academy went with ALL smaller movies this year. This has been the trend for the past decade or more, but this year there are NO "Hollywood-type" movies up for the big awards. Most of the movies aren't technically "independent" movies, but they are indepenent-esque, if that makes any sense.

    It should be a good show despite the fact that most of the major awards are no brainers.


    I mean we know Brokeback will win, as will Ang Lee. We know PSH will win for Capote and Reese will win for Actress. The only real questions are the Supporting actor categories. Obviously Rachel Weisz is the front runner since she won the Golden Globe and SAG, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Michelle Williams win. As for Best Supporting Actor I'd love to see Paul Giamatti win, but I can see it going to Dylan or Clooney as well.

    Clooney should win the best Screenplay for Good Night and Adapted Screenplay will go to Brokeback.

    The song category is VERY week this year so I'm not even going to go there.


    As for Score, John Williams will win just because he is John Williams. Although he could split the vote since he's up for 2 different movies. We shall see.

    Other than that I don't care.

    Re: Oscar Nominations

    I liked 'March of the Penguins' but I also liked 'Murderball'. It's between those two, imho.

    I'm wondering why the song from 'Brokeback' didn't get nominated. Do you need a certain number of votes to get nominated?
