Some of these Oscar nominations I would like to see but not all of these are realistic!
- Performance by an actor in a leading role - Johnny Depp
Could happen but very rarely does a middle movie in a trilogy get nominated for any best actor category. (Remember Sir Ian McKellan in LOTR Trilogy?) Maybe in POTC-AWE?
- Achievement in costume design
Heck yeah! Talk about costume period piece. No other moive from this year could match up to the costumes in POTC-DMC!
- Achievement in directing
Hopeful but doubtful!
- Achievement in makeup
If you can consider CGI as make up maybe however many of the other non CGI characters had excellent makeup! Consider the weathered pirate look!
- Achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original score)
Jack's Theme, The Kraken, Two Horns, Tia Dalma, Davy Jones themes...NUFF SAID!
- Achievement in sound mixing
Definitely! No questions asked!
- Achievement in visual effects
ILM and CGI! What else can you say!?
- Original screenplay
Doubtful but hopeful! Hard to get around critics like Lisa Swartzbum from Entertainment Weekly that cannot enjoy the "entertainment value" of a movie....obviously topping $375 million means nothing to the critics!
January 17th 2007 the announcements come out!!!!!
