BEST PICTURE @ the Oscars

The Oscars take place Sunday night in Los Angeles. One of the most hotly contested races is for BEST PICTURE.


Who should win? Who will win?


Your choices are:
'Chicago'
'Gangs of New York'
'The Hours'
'The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers'
'The Pianist'


There's no wrong answer here!

I've only seen the Pianist. Good film.

Chicago - not my type
LOTR - not my type either
Gangs Of New York - No Children Under 16, I hate my government
The Hours - Will see this weekend when it opens, sounds good. They cut three so-called lesbian kisses in the film so people like me can watch it with a PG-rating, so I don't know whether to uphold my anti-censorship stance or be thankful.
The Pianist - Excellent, but meandering

Hmm...

I think LOTR should win, but it won't. Chicago will, which is alright. I did enjoy it quite a bit.

Also, am I the only one who doesn't think Gangs was a great film? It was good...I just don't think it's Best Picture material. But maybe that's just me...

Btw, I've seen all the nominees except The Pianist.

My vote is for Chicago for who I want to win. I also think it will most likely win. The Hours was fabulous, though. Sad, but fabulous.

I've only seen LOTR and want it to win. I have The Hours and Gangs of NY downloaded, but haven't watched them yet.

Gangs left my city before I could see it.

I have seen 4 of the 5 and say this:

Gangs - It will win
Chicago - good flick, but not a chance
The Pianist - good, but too long and nothing too new ( I feel bad saying that too, considering the concept of the movie, but )
The Hours - Amazing movie, but I also don't believe it has a chance (Will pick up many acting awards).
LOTR - This is my choice of SHOULD win, but it won't. There is always next year Peter Jackson.

Really? Most say Chicago is the shoo-in bc Gangs was too flawed - but that Marty has a good chance of winning Best Director.

Possibly. I haven't seen the film, but I just have a feeling Scorsese will clean house. As for Chicago, I 'd it very much, but I find it very very very unlikely that the Academy will recognise a musical as the best picture of the year.

Well, West Side Story, Oliver, and Gigi all won Best Picture their years. Granted those were all some time ago, but it doesn't seem like the Academy has something against musicals.

Scorsese will definitely win Best Director, though.

i actually heard what carrie did. that scorcese will nab director but chicago is tipped to win picture. i loved them both so who knows. all i know is i really want daniel day lewis to win. if he does i don't care how the rest of it goes. i would love to see latifah win but i know that's a total long shot.

ditto.

although I know I'll be disappointed when LOTR doesn't win, even though I know it won't.
