i have not seen
the Judy Dench Presents movie

I liked Falling Down, ok

I enjoyed the location shots,
I knew them all

i did not like the story line that much
the lead character just seemed to hate minorities

I did enjoy Syriana, however, which would fit that genre.
I hear you

I do like them
if they work

Magnolia - PT Anderson
Short Cuts - Altman

both fit the genre and worked

i liked Syriana, too

I didn't think it was all that special, but I still think the Academy will nominate it.

I haven't seen all the movies mentioned, but I'm an avid follower of pop culture and the entertainment biz, and like to make predictions based on reviews, public reaction, previous picks by the Academy, and general brouhaha.

I've heard really good things about that documentary produced by Brad Pitt, so I'm assuming that's a lock for a nomination.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....KIERA KNIGHTLY?
And A History of Violence?? Come on. A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE? That movie looked like a Lifetime special.
But I'm uber happy about the Crash nominations.

Walk The Line was shut out for Best Picture? That's a bit of a surprise.

Hmmm.....can someone explain THIS to me?

From the official Oscars website:

+++

"PARADISE NOW"
Palestine
Directed by Hany Abu-Assad


ACADEMY AWARDS HISTORY
This is the first Academy Award nomination for Palestine.

FILM SYNOPSIS
Over the course of twenty-seven hours, two young Palestinian men prepare themselves for a suicide bombing mission. For Said and Khaled, everyday life comes to an abrupt end when they are contacted by the guerrilla group to which they both belong and begin the process of taking their leave of family and friends.

+++

Is it my mistake or is this the first time an Oscar nomination goes to a country that doesn't exist?

Can anyone tell me where Palestine is?

Between Syriana and Good Night and Good Luck, George Clooney is all over the place.

Just for all us trivia buffs.....ROTK is tied with Ben-Hur and Titanic for most wins.
