That's really all I have to say.

Look at the Best Picture race in '95:

* Forrest Gump
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Pulp Fiction
Quiz Show
The Shawshank Redemption

I've seen all but Four Weddings, but Shawshank definitely is my favorite out of any of them, and Forrest Gump has aged the worst out all of them too.

Oh, and Ed Wood should've been there over Four Weddings, don't care if I've seen it or not, it's Tim Burton's best.
I did enjoy Murray in Lost In Translation, and I feel the movie HAS aged well. And that's the case in point. Sean Penn should have won for at least 2 of his previous nominations, but didn't, thus he got the 4th nomination (pity award).

1995 looks like it was a good year for movies. Some of the best movies never win the Oscar. I did enjoy 'Four Weddings And A Funeral' and 'Forrest Gump' too.

Yep it does, speaking as a Brit! He has done a lot of good for this country, despite the recent mess, i reckon&i'll remember him as being a good PM for us on the whole - i thought he was brilliant&eloquent when he spoke about Diana

I was only 10/11 at the time but I remember seeing his speech on TV here in the states and being sad...then thinking "What a hot prime minister! "

I think Sean Penn is exempt from the "pity award" category, because he WAS excellent in Mystic River.

Was he as good as he was in those other movies? Debatable. (Although I can cross I Am Sam off the list, because I loathed that one. )

He played the best handicapped guy since Raymond Babbit in Rain Man.

And if the Academy loves anything, they love:

musicals
(recently) black people
retarded people
and beautiful actresses playing ugly people.

it's not opinion, it's science.

The movie was alright, but I would pay to see Penn again in I Am Sam 2: Still 'Tarded

Daniel Craig was snubbed as expected. Heaven forbid the Academy nominate something from the Action/Adventure genre

Predictions:

Best motion picture of the year
THE DEPARTED

Performance by an actor in a leading role
Will Smith - THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS
Forest Whitaker - THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND

More than likely, Forest. I'm dying to see it but I've been hearing rave reviews by people I know who have seen it.

Performance by an actor in a supporting role
Alan Arkin - LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE (wow! no way, though)
Djimon Hounsou - BLOOD DIAMOND (he's definitely in a head-to-head match, I'd say)
Eddie Murphy - DREAMGIRLS (but I've also heard reviews on his performance. I'll put money on Eddie)

Performance by an actress in a leading role
Helen Mirren - THE QUEEN (There is no question. I'd be willing to bet my entire family's fortune on this one)

Performance by an actress in a supporting role
Adriana Barraza - BABEL (head-to-head with Hudson)
Abigail Breslin - LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE (Cuteeee! No way, again)
Jennifer Hudson - DREAMGIRLS (Will they really give an Oscar to an American Idol finalist? Hmmmm...one to watch)

Achievement in art direction
PAN'S LABYRINTH (There hasn't been a more visually stunning film this year. It will more than likely sweep all the art awards)
THE PRESTIGE (I wish!)

Achievement in cinematography
THE BLACK DAHLIA (I'd kill myself)
CHILDREN OF MEN (60% sure)
PAN'S LABYRINTH (close, very close)

Achievement in costume design
DREAMGIRLS
THE QUEEN

I'd pick, but I haven't seen these movies. There's no way the other two are Oscar forerunners.

Achievement in directing
THE DEPARTED (no snub this year)

Achievement in film editing (this is by far the hottest award this year. Every contender is worthy)
BABEL
BLOOD DIAMOND
CHILDREN OF MEN
THE DEPARTED
UNITED 93

So worthy, I can't decide.

Best foreign language film of the year
PAN'S LABYRINTH (I'm going to say Pan, even though it's the only one I've seen)

Achievement in makeup
CLICK (hah! no!)
PAN'S LABYRINTH (Yes)

Achievement in music written for motion pictures (Original song)
"I Need to Wake Up" - AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH
"Listen" - DREAMGIRLS
"Love You I Do" - DREAMGIRLS
"Our Town" - CARS
"Patience" - DREAMGIRLS

It's obviously going to be from Dreamgirls...

Achievement in visual effects
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST (it might go to Pirates...)

Adapted screenplay
BORAT CULTURAL LEARNINGS OF AMERICA FOR MAKE BENEFIT GLORIOUS NATION OF KAZAKHSTAN (funny! But no way)
THE DEPARTED (yep)

Original screenplay
BABEL
LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE
PAN'S LABYRINTH
THE QUEEN

Veeeeeery tricky. I have no idea, but I'm leaning towards The Queen.
