Only the Fionavar Tapestry so far, and had mixed feelings about it. I heard Tigana was good, though.

I'm picky about fantasy--love it when it's good, but I don't find it's good that often. I really prefer children's fantasy. I have read nothing in the vein of LOTR that really compares to it, for me. A lot of adult fantasies come across as a pale imitation.

Ah, the Academy Awards. This is how it SHOULD, according to my opinion, turn out this year.

ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE
Russell Crowe - He's amazing in everything he's in.


ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
Jim Broadbent - give the man an Oscar, he's superb.


ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE
Nicole Kidman - definately. Though, I thought she would get an oscar nod for THE OTHERS.

ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
Helen Mirren - Her perfomance in GOSFORD PARK is heartbreaking. She should win.

ANIMATED FEATURE FILM
Shrek - no contest.


ART DIRECTION
MOULIN ROUGE - ofcourse!


CINEMATOGRAPHY
LORD OF THE RINGS - definately.

COSTUME DESIGN
GOSFORD PARK - YES!

DIRECTING
BLACK HAWK DOWN - Ridley Scott DESERVED the oscar last year, I was very VERY pissed off when he didn't get it. He should get it this year.

I actually quite like the nominations this year, but I hope these actually turn out good this year.

Ant.

Lynch got the nomination for Director, but that's a big letdown. Mulholland Drive had the best performance by a woman (Naomi Watts) and was the most entertainingly original movie this past year.

I don't think I'll ever watch these Awards. It's all politics and no substance.

And they are imitaition
Tigana is great, with only one objection but I don't want to go to details
The best form Kay id Lions of All Rassan - you realy should read it, it's even not fantasy as far as I'm concerned (no magic, no dragons and stuff...)
And ofcourse Terry Pratchet - he' hilarious, but you are right fantasy in general is throwaway...
