I hope nominations for The Sea Inside; and who knows, maybe Almodovar can grab another one for his screenplay :p
Gael in best actor for Bad Education would be fantastic, althought it's impossible :mad:
To sum up; I want a bit of variety in the nominations; more languages and more films :p that's why I will probably be pissed off after them :p

I saw "The Aviator" over the weekend, and Cate was the only good thing about the movie. I didn't really like it, but Cate's performance was amazing. It'll be a tight race between her and Nathalie Portman in "Closer"

Great observation! I never would have imagined Jamie Foxx capable of such performances, let alone being cast in these movies. And after Boys Don't Cry, nothing surprises me with Hilary Swank anymore. Can't wait to see Million Dollar Baby on Friday!

I'm happy for Don Cheadle. I hope he wins even though it's a long shot. Great to see the Incredibles up for best screenplay. i'm glad that Bardem was not nominated. He trashed the americans when he said that he only wanted American 'blue-staters' to watch his movie. He said it a little harsher than that on CNN.

Oscar Snubs Michael Moore, Mel Gibson

By Dean Goodman

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Michael Moore's attempt to turn voters against President Bush (news (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/DailyNews/manual/nm/en_nm/leisure_oscars_losers_dc/14092986/*http://news.search.yahoo.com/search/news?fr=news-storylinks&p=%22President%20Bush%22&c=&n=20&yn=c&c=news&cs=nw) - web sites (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/DailyNews/manual/nm/en_nm/leisure_oscars_losers_dc/14092986/*http://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=web-storylinks&p=President%20Bush)) failed and on Tuesday he lost his gamble as well for a coveted best-picture Oscar nomination for his incendiary documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11."

http://us.news1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/rids/20050125/t/r1970129639.jpg (http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/050125/ids_photos_wl/r1970129639.jpg)
Reuters Photo (http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/050125/ids_photos_wl/r1970129639.jpg)


The omission from the coveted category marks a major misfire for the liberal firebrand who withdrew his anti-Bush polemic from contention in the documentary category, which he won two years ago with "Bowling for Columbine," in order to focus on the big prize. No documentary has ever won the best picture Oscar.



Conservative filmmaker Mel Gibson (news (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/DailyNews/celeb/nm/en_nm/leisure_oscars_losers_dc/14092986/*http://news.search.yahoo.com/search/news?fr=news-storylinks&p=%22Mel%20Gibson%22&c=&n=20&yn=c&c=news&cs=nw)), who performed a miracle by turning an Aramaic-speaking Jesus into a worldwide box office star with "The Passion of the Christ," also was shut out of the major award categories.



The Biblical saga generated zero buzz among Oscar prognosticators, and Gibson declined to campaign for the film he directed and funded with his own money after all the studios passed. It did, however, land three minor Oscar nominations for makeup, cinematography and score.



Earlier this month, "Passion" won a lowly People's Choice Award for best film drama to go with the two Oscars (news (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/DailyNews/manual/nm/en_nm/leisure_oscars_losers_dc/14092986/*http://news.search.yahoo.com/search/news?fr=news-storylinks&p=%22Oscars%22&c=&n=20&yn=c&c=news&cs=nw) - web sites (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/DailyNews/manual/nm/en_nm/leisure_oscars_losers_dc/14092986/*http://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=web-storylinks&p=Oscars)) Gibson won in 1996 for producing and directing "Braveheart."



Frank Pierson, the president the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (news (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/DailyNews/manual/nm/en_nm/leisure_oscars_losers_dc/14092986/*http://news.search.yahoo.com/search/news?fr=news-storylinks&p=%22Academy%20of%20Motion%20Picture%0AArts%20and% 20Sciences%22&c=&n=20&yn=c&c=news&cs=nw) - web sites (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/DailyNews/manual/nm/en_nm/leisure_oscars_losers_dc/14092986/*http://search.yahoo.com/search?fr=web-storylinks&p=Academy%20of%20Motion%20Picture%20Arts%20and%20S ciences)) that awards the Oscars, declined to comment on what Moore's reaction would be, saying, "I'll have to call him and ask."



As for Gibson, Pierson noted that while the Australian-raised actor did not get nominated for a major prize he earned enough money from "Passion" to "set up his own studio."



The Moore snub does not mean that Hollywood has suddenly dumped its liberal orthodoxy, said conservative commentator Mark Smith.



"Perhaps Hollywood decided, 'We don't want to be reminded of our bitter defeat in November (in the presidential election), and the best way to forget it is not to talk about Michael Moore at this year's Oscars,"' said Smith, author of "The Official Handbook of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy."



Moore and Gibson were not the only notable omissions when the Academy Award contenders were announced at daybreak.



Golden Globe nominee Paul Giamatti (news (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/DailyNews/celeb/nm/en_nm/leisure_oscars_losers_dc/14092986/*http://news.search.yahoo.com/search/news?fr=news-storylinks&p=%22Paul%20Giamatti%22&c=&n=20&yn=c&c=news&cs=nw)) was not nominated for his lead role as a grumpy oenophile in "Sideways," even though Thomas Haden Church and Virginia Madsen were cited for their supporting roles in the comedy.



Both Church and Madsen said they were deeply disappointed as he was key to the film's success.



While "Finding Neverland" tied with "Ray" for second place among nominees with seven nods, its Swiss director, Marc Forster, did not make the cut. Forster and "Closer" Director Mike Nichols were the only Golden Globe nominees shut out of the Oscar race.



Two-time Oscar winner Kevin Spacey had campaigned aggressively for his Bobby Darin movie, "Beyond the Sea," a labor of love he directed, produced, co-wrote and starred in. But Oscar was deaf to Spacey this time.

I'm thrilled that Don Cheadle got recognized. He is an amazing actor and thoroughly deserves his nomination. I was surprised by the nods for Catalina and Sophie, but it is good to see the academy not only recognize minority actors in tough dramatic roles, but to also recognize independent films.

Here is my list of propable winners:

Best Picture:
The Aviator

Best Director:
Martin Scorcese

Best Actress:
Annette Bening

Best Supporting Actress:
Natalie Portman

Best Supporting Actor:
Morgan Freeman??

Best Actor:
Leo or Jamie. I think it is really close between these two. I have a feeling that the academy may decide to give Jamie the best supporting actor award and Leo the best actor award.

Jan 25th, 2005, 08:53 PM
Eastwood in Best Actor? WTF?! That's what they call in the industry a 'mercy fuck'. Christ if he's getting a nom there's hope for Hel Lawson yet to get her second Oscar!

I hope Jamie Foxx don't win. He didn't even do his own singing - he mimed to Ray! Times have changed - when Hel was singing on screen it was 100% pure Lawson. It was nominated for a Razzie in 1999 for Worst Vocal Performance of the Century but at least it was Hel!

Look out for Bening winning Best Actress. She don't deserve it of course but she's married to Warren Beatty. When Zeta Jones got nommed Michael Douglas had to sleep with Hel, Neely, Goldie, Diane Keaton to get her that Oscar. Beatty is willing go further for Annette. I hear he is already arranging hotel dates with Kevin Spacey!

Yes I'm happy that Don Chedale was nominated. He was excellent in Hotel Rwanda. I loved the movie, but I think he will be snubbed.

Best Actor: I think I will give it to Leo for some reason. Jamie has alot of buzz though and the academy seems to respect him so you never know. I think Leo did a good job in Aviator(had free passes), it's kind of an academy type movie. Jamie was outstanding in Ray and Collateral also, it's good that he's nominated.

I think Clint Eastwood will take the Best Director for Million Dollar Baby. One of my friends saw it and he said it was good, and sad at the end. I will have to rent that one.;)

I saw Closer and I'm of the opinion that it's overrated. Maybe I'm the only one, but it seems to fall in the line of one of those cheesy romantic stories. I actually felt it was quite boring.:rolleyes:

Not true. He sang some parts as well as lip synched. One example of him singing in the movie was the 'Hit the Road Jack" scene. On The Actor's studio he said they didn't talk about him doing the singing because they didn't want it to be about him being able to sing....

Unlike Kevin Spacey, who told anyone that would listen (as well as a few that wouldn't) that he did his own singing for "Beyond the Sea"..... :rolleyes:

I saw "Hotel Rwanda" and "Million Dollar Baby" last week. LOVED THEM!! If Morgan Freeman doesn't win the award, then they should quit giving them out.

He mimed because the singer ray charles sang because um it was about ray charles, not jaime fox.

when they make a movie called jaime then jamie can sing.

anyway I hope jaimie wins because he gave the best speech at the golden globes everyone else can just drown.

except don cheadle and hotel rwanda that was touching.

My tastes are much too commercial to appreciate this list of Oscar contenders...they just don't appeal to me.

Take 'Closer' for example...the trailer was just so unappealing, screaming "Worthy Oscar Nominated Drama", the kind of movie that is meant to be good for you. Like cough medicine. Maybe its the greatest film ever, but after that trailer, Im never likely to find out.

Talky drama's are just not for me. Which is why the film I want to see at the moment is Team America not Closer! :) That vomit scene looks a thing of beauty! :D

Id have given a nod to the likes of 'Shaun of the Dead', 'Fahrenheit 9/11', and more nominations for the beautiful 'House of the Flying Daggers'. Especially for the amazing Zhang Ziyi.

Ugh! I hated Team America. You're right, you probably don't have Oscar taste.

Meanwhile, I can't wait to Finding Neverland and The Aviator. :D

I saw Maria Full of Grace Monday night. It was good but it made me think about a lot of stuff and now I am kind of depressed but if a movie can impact you like that it's good.:worship: :sad: :confused: :(

I haven't seen Ray but to me it seems like Kerry Washington, Samantha Warren, and Regina King deserved something.:confused:

Glad to see "The Passion" get 3 nods although Maia Morgenstern should have been nominated.:rolleyes: :sad:

I liked the BAFTA nods much better though.:bounce: :worship:

Well, I am happy Passion got nominated for some categories. I hope it wins one ..at least. Actually I hope it wins in all three categories its nominated in.

I hope Kate and Natalie win. And I bet Jaimie wins best actor although I hope Leo gets it.

Out of all the contenders for Best Pic, I've only seen Finding Neverland. That was my kinda story. I love a healthy mix of beautiful cinematography, period costumes, and total fantasy...along with a little bit of crying. At the end *those of you who've seen it know what part I'm talking about* tears just started rolling down my face, and I looked over at my friend, and she looked back at me and said "I won't think any less of you if you don't think any less of me for crying at a sappy part" :lol:

I'm glad The Passion didn't get any acting nods...that was true shite. It definitely deserved the ones it did get nominated for, but, I don't think that it was so truly amazing as to get nominated for Best Picture.

While I heard that The Aviator was good, I'm just fearing that they'll give the oscar to Leo. And to Martin, for that matter. I saw Gangs of New York and just about screamed it was so terrible...how Scorsese won for that, I don't know. So awful.

Anyway, here are my predictions for the acting winners:

Actor: Jamie Foxx
Alternate: Leonardo DiCaprio

Comment: I think Jamie Foxx has won this. This is like Sissy Spacek in Coal Miner's Daughter, one of those performances you just can't ignore. But Leo can spoil.

Actress: Annette Bening
Alternate: Hilary Swank

Comment: Don't believe anyone that says Swank has this locked up. Seriously 2 wins in 6 years? I doubt it. I have this feeling that not too many people think she was better in M$B than she was in Boys don't cry. This is Bening's 3rd nod, she should win. But this is a tough category. I can easily see Staunton or Winslet sneaking in too.

S.Actor: Morgan Freeman
Alternate: Thomas Haden Church

Comment: Church can win everything but the Oscar. I think it's going to come down to that. I just don't see AMPAS snubbing Freeman again. This could be his last chance. And Church is a virtual unknown. But if anyone's going to beat Freeman, you know who.

S.Actress: Cate Blanchett
Alternate: Natalie Portman

Comment: Blanchett should win this. I'm not saying this personally but I think she has the reputation, critical acclaim, the starring in the most nominated film and other factors to back her for a win here. BUT, most of the times, especially recently, winners of this category have come from first time nominees except once every 5 or 6 years when a previous nominee wins for the first time. Guess who won last year? Renee Zellweger. If AMPAS is back to the trends for this category, look for Portman to pull a la Harden.

Here are my comments about my picks for the actual awards

Best Actor: Johnny Depp
Depp has done great work over the breadth of his career and not until recently has he really gotten noticed for the work he's done. This nomination proves that the Academy is noticing his work and acknowledging the talent behind them. This award should be for the numerous performances Depp has done that hasn't gotten enough notice. But look for either DiCaprio or Foxx to push Depp out of the running. It starting to look like Foxx will be winning most of the precursor awards, but I'm thinking the Academy would want to reward Depp's innovative performances of the past as well as of the recent.

Best Actress: Catalina Sandino Moreno
It's not often that foreign speaking performances get nominated for an Academy Award (the last I remember is when Bardem was nominated for Best Actor for his performance in Before Night Falls). Moreno is PHENOMENAL in Maria Full of Grace. For someone who's never done this before, she pulled off the performance of her life. She's received such critical acclaim for this film, and her SAG nomination is well deserved. The Academy might actual break the mold this year and award a foreign performance an award that would be more than well-deserved. Look for Anette Benning however to spoil the party with a bloody fantastic performance in Being Julia.

Best Supporting Actor: Clive Owen
I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED!!!! Owen in Closer. He had the best performance in the movie and he was working with multiple Oscar nominated and Oscar winning actors. For him to hold his own with such a brilliant performance really made that Golden Globe win well-earned. The SAG snub is highly unfortunate and really unjust. His performance in Closer is really only matched by another actor's performance in the Supporting Actor category (who is suprisingly snubbed in EVERY MAJOR AWARD nomination) and that is Peter Sarsgaard's performance in Kinsey. Clive Owen has never gotten a lot of publicity for his other movies, but Closer really shows the world the talent this man has. And he should win. Thomas Hayden Church is a BIG THREAT if he hadn't won all the critic awards leading into this award season. Morgan Freeman's performance in Million Dollar Baby is also worthy and I feel that he has been overlooked for quite some time now especially for that performance in Shawshank Redemption. He could also win this award, but so far, noone has impressed me more than Owen and Sarsgaard this category and since Sarsgaard is not nominated...

Best Supporting Actress: Natalie Portman
Sophie O. is really the only one in this category who hasn't received a lot of buzz. Blanchett has gotten a TON of critical acclaim for her performance and people say that she should win based on past snubs. Marsden has won almost all the precursor critics awards. Portman has won the GG. Both she and Blanchett are the only ones from this group even nominated for a BAFTA. Laura Linney received a lot of critical glory when the movie first came out, but lost a lot of steam. But Sophie's performance while good has been overlooked. Portman's win at the GG is HUGE for her chances. The fact that she's been snubbed at SAGs is a big blow, but she's put on a lot GREAT AWARDING WINNING performances over the past 15 months or so beginning with her brilliant work in Cold Mountain followed by indie favorite Garden State nad then with her scene-stealing performance in Closer. Based on those performances, she's been the BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS in A LOT of MOVIES. She should win this award.

I saw the Aviator yesterday, great movie :) :yeah: Good performance of Leonardo Di Caprio.
I didn't see any of the other nominated movies though, so I can't say who should win.

From what i hear and read, Hilary Swank SHOULD win the Oscar. But I believe politics will play a part and she won't . Does anyone honestly think they will give her a second Oscar? I really don't. Even though Hilary is my GIRL!

I think the nominations were very fair. It was great the Michael Moore didn't nominated. Nor did Moore get nominated for SAG awards! Awesome Job to SAG and Oscars!

Jan 30th, 2005, 02:38 PM
As far as I understood Moore couldn't get nominated simply because his film was released on TV this same year.
Same thing happened in 2002 with Peter Greensway's Bloody Sunday, a Channel 4 production that won Sundance and Berlin festivals
About the predictions I'd love all that Shap Half has said come true

Lord Nelson
Jan 30th, 2005, 02:57 PM
Well, Moore took risks by withdrawing his movie from the best documentary category and hoping to get a nod for the best movie category. Unfortunately for him he blew it. Anyway he already has an Oscar, good for him. Also it would be kind of cocky from my part to say that he would have gotten the Oscar for best documentary if he had not withdrawn from there. I'm sure other documentaries nominated are good and who know perhaps he may have not even been nominated for that category.

Jan 30th, 2005, 07:26 PM
even if he submitted 9/11 into best documentary he wouldn't have won

Shane54
Jan 30th, 2005, 11:15 PM
I don't think that he would have won for best documentary even if he had been nominated for best doc. Liberal Hollywood would only be reminded of the bitter defeat in November. Besides, I really don't believe it is worthy of a best documentary. Aren't documentaries based on facts and not biases? And as for best picture, it doesn't deserve the same accolades as Aviator, Million Dollar Baby, or Ray.
