BOO! The Oscars...so what's yer pick?

OK! So what's everyone's picks for this boring show??? I like A.I.- But its not even nominateed for anything *except best visual effects and best score* which is technically something... but the acting is brilliant, Jude Law was excellent and most of all Haley Joel Osment! ...at least Teddy should be nominateed then...

So I'm rooting for A beautiful mind, best actor is definitely Russell again... I haven't seen I am sam so I can't rule out Sean Penn. How about foreign films? I haven't seen any of those either but I heard Amelie is a great one.

I hope David Lynch or Robert Altman win the Best Director Oscar. Odds are Lynch won't have a chance, and Altman is just slightly more likely to win. (Danospano sheads a tear)

Go Rusty...knock 'em dead...well actually no, don't do that, just take the award and maybe rough 'em up a little. You can read your poetry all you like brother. Ship ahoy.

Slightly more seriously, slightly. I hope Peter Jackson wins best director, for his children and in honour of JRR Tolkien.

Anyhow, Amelie is delightful, lovely and wonderful in a way that only a European film could be. A Must see in my books!

Can someone explain to me why Denzel/Training Day is being given so much praise? It was 'ok' but I never thought it would be an Oscar film or he'd get an nomination for it.
Anyone who has seen both it and Beautiful Mind try and convince me Denzel Washington did a better acting job then Russell Crowe.

Yo Tyler it isnt who did a Better job thing, its who do you think the Academy will vote for. It is called Oscar Wisdom, or OW for short. Julia Roberts recently said she can't imagine living in a world where she has a Best Acting Oscar and Denzel does not. Alot of other Academy members seem to feel the same way from the American talk shows I have witnessed. I wont see Training Day until its video release date of 3/19, but I am sure it was just a good Denzel performance. The thing is, he SHOULD have got it for The Hurricane. He really should have. The Academy kind of knows it too.

Another thing, Denzel is playing a role against his typical character. The Academy likes that.

The members of the Academy that will truly vote for the best performances will split their votes between Russel Crowe, Michael Wilkinson and Sean Penn. But the people who are voting for Denzel will supercede the votes of all those that voted for the others and he will win.

This is not an exact science, but from my years of reading the trades and watching the results, this is the way it looks.

A big sign as to how the Academy is going will be after March 10th, when the winners of the Screen Actors Guild Awards are announced. Most of those voters are Academy members and the SAGs are like an 80% accurate indicator for who will win the Oscar.

I am with ya but I will be surprised if this film does as well as you and I want! There could be a surprise coup with Moulin Rouge, the more "serious" movies, LOTR, A Beautiful Mind, In the Bedroom may take a lot of votes away from each other giving neither a majority and there could be a surprise Moulin Rouge win. Here's one positive indicator:

It won the Producers Guild of America award last weekend and that has an 75-80% accuracy record for predicting the Best Movie. So a Moulin Rouge surprise is still possible...

ok well I do hope so chum, cause if not I will be very disappointed.......... upset Heartbroken

now my mate said with the British Acad Awards Judy Dench won cause it was all 'English' but we may be surprised and Nicole could win it cause its 'American'......hey it was him....

anyway if they dont U2LA and I are gonna break in tru the entrance and storm down and DEMAND......FECKING DEMAND ALL awards go to MR and I will be very much feeling the power through anger to do that....if I have to knee the bodyguards in the balls and bite the winners hands off to get the awards back I will!!!!!!!!!...........

also IF and I bloody bet too, LOTR sweep the fecking board, Im pretty sure it wont go to the directors head as it did to James Camerons......watching James win after loads and shout, 'Im the King of the World' made me want to throw that guy from here to the Moon with a rocket up his ass..........
