We can get rid of trickier categories like Sound & Sound Effect editing, of course.

Would you want to do 5 noms of your own choice or from the Oscar ballot itself (when it arrives)?

Maybe we could add key categories like "Best Grip"?

That award likely goes to Lance, come to think of it.

I like the technical awards.

No, your own noms. I figure for the Oscar contest we'll pick who we actually think is GOING to win, but this will be more what we would nominate and award. I'll have to look up the actual nominating process to get the particulars, but I'm pretty sure it's a weighted 1-2-3 thing. The five nominees are the ones who get the highest point total.

I don't know, some stiff competition (no pun intended...well, okay, it was) from The Moms on that one.

Like Angelina Jolie competing against Jon Voight.

Sounds fun, though I doubt my actual Oscar predictions will be very accurate. I suck at picking those things.

Really? You seem to have caught on to their middlebrow, insider, popularity contest tendencies.

Yeah, I'm getting better I'm sure, but my picks from this past February were nearly all wrong. I'll be interested in comparing my record this year to last.

I won the contest I had at my Oscar Party last year.

What did you pick, Babel for BP and Editing? Eddie Murphy?

I just remember Children of Men getting buttfucked out of Best Cinematography last year.

That was obscene.

I'm Not There and No Country are better films, I can admit that. Any of my top three could be the #1 on a given day, but right now I'm leaning to Darjeeling.


Keep in mind I haven't even seen There Will Be Blood yet.

Fair enough.

I don't think Darjeeling really stood up to the best of Anderson himself even though. It was definitely a step forward, but the whole thing felt like more of a transitory film that didn't quite live up to his own standard.
