Meryl Streep = amazing but Judi Dench = HAWTTTTT. She raped Notes on a Scandal, it was phenominal. I like Hellen but Judi pwns.

Yeah Judi Dench was fantastic in Notes on a Scandal (so was Meryl by the way in Devils) but Cate Blanchett was also very good and from a pure acting standpoint, I think most people agree that Blanchett blows Hudson (and the rest of the competition in that category) out of the water. However, most people don't think Blanchett will win since she recently won for The Aviator. I'm predicting an upset though, I think Blanchett has it.

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams

Re: The Official 79th Academy Awards Thread!

I want Meryl or Penélope to win, but is more likely Hellen Mirren who will be taking it the Oscar home.

Go Will Smith!!!

Re: The Official 79th Academy Awards Thread!

I think this will be an Oscar night NOT full of surprises. It's pretty obvious who wills snag home awards except for the Best Picture category. But all the other major categories, it's obvious who will win.

Re: The Official 79th Academy Awards Thread!

I think the supporting awards are still up for grabs personally. Mirren or Whitaker losing would be huge shocks because they've pretty much won everything leading up to the Oscars, but I still think there is room for upset in both male and female supporting. Hoping for Abigail Breslin in female supporting, but I'd be happy for Jennifer or Cate too

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

Re: The Official 79th Academy Awards Thread!

How brilliant would it be for Abigail Breslin to win best supporting, it would be so cute to see her reaction, its still a big achievement to be nominated at such a young age. Winslet was amazing in Little Children, shame they did little to really push the film, maybe she would have a better chance to win

New Line bungled Little Children...how it managed to get 3 nominations with almost no publicity and tiny tiny box office returns is a mystery to me. Somewhat of a minor miracle.

Anyway I think it's cool this year that best picture is kind of up in the air. The acting category that could provide the biggest upset in my view is best supporting actor. They say Eddie Murphy isn't that popular in Hollywood...

Do you know why New Line did that to Little Children, if somehow Kate wins, no doubt they will push it again

I have no idea...I've discussed it on other boards and no one seems to know what went wrong. There was a rumour going around that the studio was angry at Todd Field, the director, and decided not to push it, but that doesn't make much sense to me. Wouldn't they want to have awards and money?
