As the days approach and I read more about how shitty, conservative, and old the Academy is, the more I think Peter O'Toole will win Best Actor over Forest Whitaker.

That's the one Oscar upset I won't be surprised to see.

And of course, Babel over Little Miss Sunshine or The Departed.

Honestly, I think Little Miss Sunshine winning Best Picture would be an upset, because it's usually not a lighthearted comedy/drama that wins Best Picture.

The upset I would like to see is Jennifer Hudson losing. Wouldn't mind seeing the Japanese actress from Babel win.

I thought so too, but Sunshine won awards from the DGA, WGA, and SAG committees. Which make up like 50+ % of the Academy voters.

So it may be a frontrunner, I don't know.

What other movie would you want to win? The Departed?

I really liked both the Departed and Babel. The only best picture nom I didn't see was Letters From Iwo Jima. I think it'll be Babel. But you know, there's not one on that list that makes me say "I loved that movie so much, I totally want it to win."

Or Little Miss Sunshine, in which case I'll hurl a pink fluffy slipper at my TV.

I think I might agree, I'm kinda over her already I think it's just too much hype about her etc. Supposedly Jennifer and Beyonce are doing a duet.

TomKat is going, Tom is going to be a presenter. Brad and Angelina are not expected to attend.

I can't wait to see the clothes and jewelry

I loved Jennifer Hudson and think she deserves the praise she's been getting. But she doesn't have to get EVERY award, does she?

Things I've read have indicated she might lose due to overhype and a backlash among the Academy voters.

Remember the upset when everyone thought Lauren Hutton had the supporting nod in the bag for "The Mirror Has Two Faces," but it went to Juliette Binoche for "The English Patient"? Good times.

My favorite of the ones nominated.

me too.

as much as I'm pulling for Eddie Murphy and Forest Whitaker, I have the feeling one of them might get upset by Peter O'Toole or Alan Arkin.

To be fair though, I didn't get to see Babel, though I'm not a huge fan of that style of film anyway, and I doubt I'd like it better than LMS or The Departed.

And I had absolutely zero interest to see Letter From Iwo Jima. I love Clint, but I'm kinda getting sick of him.
