<font color="aquamarine">Right now, the predictions are that it's gonna be a tossup between A Beautiful Mind and The Lord of the Rings for most nominations. Both of those movies are likely Best Picture nominees. Other likely Best Pic noms are In The Bedroom, Black Hawk Down, and Moulin Rouge.

Well, before the actual nominations come on...what're YUOR picks?

I was happy to see renee zellwegger acknowledged- no one thought she could do bridget jones and she did.

And even as I admit to a 12+ year obsession with ethan hawke I have to scratch myself at his nomination.

The Man Who Wasn't There ought to win for cinematography.

Gosford park kicks all those movies' asses up there in Best Picture. And Maggie Smith better win best suppporting - if Jennifer connelly wins i'm going to vomit.
Unfortunately Amelie didn't win best foreign at the Golden's... but what do they know anyway..

my picks.

ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE
Russell Crowe
Sean Penn- I hope he never wins. Playing retard to win an Oscar scheme is old. Should have ended with Cliff Robertson, with the exception of Daniel Day Lewis.
Will Smith- Since when was he a serious actor?
Denzel Washington
Tom Wilkinson

ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
Jim Broadbent
Ethan Hawke- Yuck
Ben Kingsley- Filler. They're never gonna give him 2 Oscars.
Ian McKellen
Jon Voight- sentimental fave

ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE
Halle Berry- token blactress who would have had a better shot for supporting
Judi Dench
Nicole Kidman- We're supposed to feel bad for her for breaking up with tom and now we have to award her with an oscar?
Sissy Spacek
Renée Zellweger

ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
Jennifer Connelly
Helen Mirren
Maggie Smith
Marisa Tomei- WTF? She's nominated again! I thought she was just a one hit wonder like Hilary Swank.
Kate Winslet

yeah, but when's the next time Cruise will actually deserve an Oscar? granted, his performance in Magnolia was great, but hardly Oscar-worthy.

i was pissed when Burt Reynolds lost for Boogie Nights, too.

I'd put Royal Tenenbaums, Waking life, Trembling Before G-d, Shrek, or Amelie way before that load.

I'd rather him win for Harry Potter http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/tongue.gif But, uh, I haven't heard the A.I. score. Still... GO HARRY!

Me too. Not proud. I hope it'll be LOTR, but... it probably won't be.

My hopes:
Best Actor - Will Smith
I haven't seen Ali yet, even - but, I just think he doesn't get half the credit he deserves. I think he's remarkably talented. Plus, Russell got it last year! http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/wink.gif Even though I think Russell Crowe deserves best actor more for A Beautiful Mind than he did for Gladiator

Supporting Actor - Ethan Hawke or Ian McKellan
Best Actress - Judi Dench
Supporting Actress - Jennifer Connelly
Art Direction - *SO* Moulin Rouge
Score - Harry Potter
Song - Lord of The Rings
Best Picture - Lord of the Rings

*sigh*

I'm really glad to see these, except for the fact that Moulin Rouge was completely robbed in Best Director and Best Song/Score categories (NO -- I'm not talking about Lady Marmelade -- the version of Roxanne rocks, though!).

well the category is basically best song written specifically with the movie in mind.
so its only contender would have been "come what may."

I disagree with this. although, I don't think Gosford Park deserves the acclaim it's gotten, definitely not these nominations. I think it's just academy sympathy, which he does sort of deserve. He's made films that should have gotten him a statue in the past, but didn't, and there going to make it up to him this year, or something.

I would like to point something out.

In the last decade or so, both Titanic and Gladiator won best picture, while Fargo and LA Confidential did not. Oh, and The Godfather, Part III, despite being atrocious, was nominated for best picture as well.

Point being, do the Oscars really matter?

However, since we are discussing: Tenenbaums and Monsters, Inc. (way better than Shrek) both got screwed over ... but not nearly as much as Mulholland Drive, the best film of the year.

The Good:
-Altman getting a directing nod despite the DGA snub (what in the hell were they thinking??)

-Amelie getting 5 noms

-Ridley scott getting a directors nod

-Memento getting 2 nods

The Bad:

-Sean Penn, Will Smith over Gene Hackman and Billy bob thorton?

-Jon Voight over Steve Buscemi?

-Jimmy Neutron over Waking Life?

the nominations are pretty atrocious.

best picture. hmm. of the 5, i've only seen lord of the rings. i guess i should go see if A Beautiful Mind sucks as much as i expect it to. i'm rooting for In the Bedroom.

best actor. this is the worst category. i don't really care who wins. russel crowe again? ugh. i hated gladiator. but he was pretty awesome in the insider. i guess i'll root for Wilkinson.

best director. i haven't seen Mulholland Drive. i'm not even sure it was screened near here. but i'm rooting for Lynch in this category. Ron Howard is a fuck.

best screenplay is the best category. tough decision here. idunno. all the films actually sound good to me.

the rest of the ones i'll root for: Spacek for actress, Kingsley for supporting actor, Ghost World for adapted screenplay, LOTR for art direction (yes, i think that this film was awesome in that department), The Man Who Wasn't There for cinematography, AI for visual effects, AI for score, Amelie for foreign film.

and the funny thing is i haven't seen most of the movies i root for. i have to wait for video for most good films, since none play around here.

Moulin Rouge for best picture?

</font>

<font color="aquamarine">Moulin Rouge was a unique concept movie, and no matter how lousy concept movies are, they usually get at least a considerable amount of attention during the Oscars.

That said, it's one of the most overrated movies I've EVER seen...The Royal Tenebaums was three times as good.

If LOTR doesn't win it, I'll be disappointed. Although In The Bedroom looks interesting enough (I haven't seen it yet), the rest of the movies are undeserving of Best Picture.

It's true, it's true.
